Institute of Technology Based Learning (ITBL)

Established in 2006, the Institute of Technology Based Learning (ITBL) aims to seamlessly integrate various technologies to the teaching and learning experience in JRU. ITBL started with implementing the faculty created Computer-Aided Instruction (CAI) modules in the elementary and high school divisions with students accessing the contents in the computer laboratories. In the same year, college students utilized the MOODLE Learning Management Systems to access their general education and major courses as part of the Course Redesign Program of the university.

CANVAS Learning Management System

In 2017, the university adopted the use of CANVAS Learning Management system to further enhance the Technology Enabled Education (TEE) programs of various divisions including the new Senior High School courses. Through the use of Canvas, faculty and students were able to access course and module contents, communicate internally and collaborate through various online activities. Online blended courses in Canvas also paved the way for the implementation of online assessments in the computer laboratories.
