DepEd SDO SAGAY officially partners with MyBusybee, Inc. for SMS Based E-Learning System to be launched at Bulanon Farm Schools, Negros Occidental
Since the surge of COVID-19, many changes have disrupted operations in many sectors. A realigned approach to cope with the limited mobility and restrictions in different areas of the Philippines and the world is needed. The Education sector has been one of the most affected industries since the pandemic began. As the Department of Education (DepEd) continues to implement online learning for the safety of its students and educators, the need for technological advancements to bridge the gap for inaccessibility is highly pertinent.
This Thursday, October 13, via the Zoom platform, DepEd SDO Sagay seals partnership with MyBusybee, Inc. to establish an SMS-based E-learning program through the BeeSuite SMS system at Bulanon Farm School.
The company developed BeeSuite SMS for areas where internet connectivity is a challenge. The solution is a first-of-its-kind state-of-the-art SMS-based learning platform designed to work without the internet. With a computer, a GSM modem, and a SIM card, teachers can conduct virtual classes. At the same time, students will only need a regular phone to attend the learning sessions.
BeeSuite SMS is a platform developed by MyBusybee, Inc., a VAS-licensed company under the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) and an accredited Cyber Security provider of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).
BUSYBEE CEO and Founder Rico Hernandez maintains his vision to help build a world of opportunities for our nation by harnessing the infinite dynamics of technology and innovation. With this program, BUSYBEE aims to empower the Education sector, provide quality learning platforms for educators, and provide quality education for learners nationwide.
SDS Arlene G. Bermejo of DepEd Schools Division Office of Sagay emphasized the need for innovation. “I consider this partnership as a wake-up call for all the Deped Personnel to embrace technology and to make changes in the way learning should be delivered” according to SDS Bermejo.
With an aligned vision and goal of innovating the Education sector, this milestone paves the way for future partnership opportunities for MyBusybee, Inc. and DEPED Sagay.
