Teaching & Learning

ALTHOUGH provisional face-to-face classes may be allowed in areas placed under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) like Iligan City, MSU-IIT is developing alternative learning arrangements - including online learning - to minimize the threat of COVID-19 infections when the first semester of the academic year 2020-2021 opens.
With the decision to pursue innovative flexible teaching and learning (InFlex) delivery of lessons that would see the first semester of AY 2020-2021 opening maybe in September, MSU-IIT is employing its e-resources so students do not have to be physically present in the campus when they enroll in their classes starting July 1, 2020.

MSU-IIT's eLibrary

As the COVID-19 pandemic has MSU-IIT suspending face-to-face classes, no students walk the campus halls or visit the library at the moment.
Seeing library books sitting lonely on their shelves and perhaps missing students leafing through their pages, personnel of the Institute Library are now reminding library-goers that the library resources are available online.
Accessing now the Institute Library’s curated open access e-book and e-journal collections is perhaps the best time for students to do so as there are many being made available for free (with unrestricted access) due to the pandemic. Faculty and staff members can also browse through the library’s local and foreign library subscription databases and search through MSU-IIT’s library collection using the Online Public Access catalog.
During the time of COVID-19 where you are forced to stay home, there is no reason not to visit the library.

MICeL (MSU-IIT Center for eLearning)

One office that has been busier than any other on campus during the pandemic is the university’s Center for eLearning or MICeL.
In response to the call to move online classes and campus activities that are usually conducted face-to-face, the MICeL has gone into overdrive providing multimedia and technical support to academic activities of the University’s constituents such as training, webinars, and meetings.
In supporting online classes, the MICeL primarily employs a Moodle-based learning management system called MOLÉ (MSU-IIT Online Learning Environment). The MICeL team has provided training on innovative flexible teaching and learning modalities, as well as consultation and technical advice on deployment of MOLÉ tools and other web applications for learning activities.
With the closing of the campus since March, MICeL has continued servicing university constituents. By September, it has conducted 16 training sessions, co-hosted and provided venue and multimedia expertise to 47 webinars, 10 dry runs of various online activities, and assistance to 9 online meetings and two online exams.
As the pandemic prevents her from coming to MSU-IIT, Dr. Cenie Vilela-Malabanan, MICeL Director, successfully supervises the operations of the Center from where she stays. She also ensures all tasks are completed by the MICeL team members.
The MICeL team members are composed of Mr. Vincent Q. Malales, Ms. Maria Camilla Ann R. Llamas, and training manager, Ms. Nenen Borinaga.
Ms. Borinaga and the team, under the supervision of Dr. Malabanan, carry out various tasks like the following:
1. Delivering training sessions and providing one-on-one after-training support to faculty members in the use of the Institute’s learning management system (MOLÉ) and other technology tools needed in developing their online courses;
2. Delivering training sessions on learning management system and other technology tools for teaching to faculty members of different SUCs in Region 10 through CHED;
3. Ensuring the smooth implementation of the Center’s activities as scheduled, such as training sessions, webinars, online examinations, online meetings, etc.;
4. Managing and facilitating the technologies required for the conduct of webinar and other activities;
5. Designing and developing of learning resources/multimedia projects; and
6. Producing video/IT materials/content for e-learning/blended mode of delivery.
