NUADU Testimonials

“We are implementing NUADU by providing a computer lab as the examination room for the students. Other than that, students also need to use their own gadgets at home to do the exercises given by the teachers through NUADU.

Applying NUADU to our education system, by the students and the teachers, is very easy to do because NUADU has a clear and neat interface. In addition to that, NUADU also provides an extensive question bank that could be usedby teachers to measure the competence of their students.

And if needed, the teachers could also input their own questions to be done by the students through NUADU. The teachers could give the assesment live so that they could monitor each of the students while doing their exercises.

Teachers can identify which students need follow-up on their competence in doing an exercise or task, and which students need more enrichment in a particular subject. We are really grateful that we able to adopt NUADU to our system in this academic year.”

“For NUADU itself, I think this platform will be a great help, especially in terms of the student’s formative activities, saving teacher’s times and making it more effective and efficient. This also will motivate the students to do more practices on the subjects.”

Teachers,

“NUADU is quite helpful and useful for the teachers and students. Not only does it make the learning process easier, but it also helps the teachers correct assignments and examinations. NUADU provides interesting and easy features to be applied, especially for the question bank.

It’s very easy to access NUADU. We can log in from various devices, especially mobile phones and laptops. NUADU is also convenient to integrate with the blended learning system and online classroom method. Most importantly, by using NUADU, the teachers will not spend too much time in assessing students’ tasks because it could be downloaded with a very detail evaluation.

Thank you, NUADU”

Education Continuity Plan Webinar

How is education possible during a global pandemic? These and other questions were addressed by the five-day Education Continuity Plan webinar series for teachers and school administrators. Big Pond Enterprises, in partnership with NUADU and Microsoft Philippines, organized the online sessions which ran from May 25-29 2020.

The webinar series gave a holistic view of the current state of our education system, looking beyond the mindset of “We can’t have face-to-face classes so we’ll make do with online classes.” Instead, resource persons from the education and technology sectors provided innovative solutions to help teachers reach their goals during the new normal.

Day 1: Philippine Education Landscape Under the New Normal by Mr. Paolo Balinas

Mr. Balinas emphasized that clear leadership and policies are crucial. He also highlighted how the pandemic has opened new ways of thinking education, with the widespread acceptance of using cloud technologies in teaching and filling educational gaps. Microsoft Teams can serve as the hub where such new learning modes can be facilitated.

Formulating Your School’s Education Continuity Plan by Ms. Cherylle Ramos

Ms. Ramos proposed that in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world, we need a solution that also has VUCA (vision, understanding, clarity, agility). She stressed that in building an education continuity plan, one must factor in leadership and culture, the teachers and their professional learning, the students’ learning experiences, assessment and accountability, and the needed infrastructure.

Day 2: Pedagogical Framework in Choosing the Right Content and Tools by Ms. Emie Baylon

Ms. Baylon showed how teachers can establish a good workflow for remote learning. She identified the key elements, including setting up of a conducive learning environment while factoring in the realities of social distancing and other restrictions. She also emphasized that one’s purpose directs the use of technology, which can aid in creating meaningful learning environments and set the pace of learning.

Day 3:  Strategies on How to Use Microsoft 365 and Teams for Online Teaching by Mr. Raymond Africa

Mr. Africa showed how to use Microsoft 365 and Teams in conducting remote learning, a strategic, measured approach to ensure students’ meets are met. He also pointed out that NUADU is linked to Microsoft 365 and Teams, making it a seamless and effective learning management system.

Day 4:  Automate Assignments and Assessments to Validate Student Learning by Mr. Sylvester Escobia

Mr. Escobia gave a detailed presentation on how NUADU provides a full home-based learning solution, providing not only automated assessment but also a tool for the preparation and facilitation of lessons. He then said that the current learning continuity plan need not be a stop-gap solution, but could be implemented into regular educational instruction even after the pandemic.

Day 5: Upskill Through Microsoft Certification and Generate Additional School Income by Mr. Francis Hernandez

Mr. Hernandez presented how Microsoft certification provides skills needed by new employers, allowing students new opportunities for employment, for teachers to build new competencies and career growth, and for schools to gain value over other schools, offer these certification programs relevant to current technologies, and consequently more revenue.
