JBLFMU Online Distance Learning
The John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University (JBLFMU) with its commitment for the development of a culture of excellence in maritime education and training responds to the need of time by acknowledging the practical and operational advancement of Online Distance Learning (ODL) mode of delivery.
The features of online distance learning which overcomes distance, time and space makes education and training available to clients at all times giving them opportunity to learn new skills, gain further instruction for enhancement of skills and knowledge and become marketable.
It is built on the principles of good education practice which encourages collaboration between students and faculty, among students themselves and even exchange of professional skills among faculty. The system puts emphases on the development of skills and knowledge building rather than just merely skills and knowledge acquisition.
As a learning system, the JBLFMU ODL looks intently on aspects of students’ needs, design of self-study materials, student support, cost-effectiveness and quality of materials and delivery system. Consequently, ODL enhances the traditional residential or face-to-face teaching.
