On 09 September 2020, Dr. Caroline Marian Enriquez, the President of Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU) and the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities (PACU), made a special appearance at the second edition of Tech Talk On-Air, staged by PLDT Enterprise and One News. 

With the theme “Technological Advancements at Work fueling the Growth and Development of E-Industries Today,” Tech Talk On-Air 2 featured extensive discussions from esteemed leaders and personalities from five focus industries, namely: eLearning, eBanking, eCommerce, eGovernment, and eHealth. 

Representing PACU in the eLearning segment, Dr. Enriquez appeared alongside Fr. Elmer Dizon, President of the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines. 

They joined Vic Tria, First Vice President and Sales Head of PLDT Enterprise, as he introduced how telecommunications company PLDT adapted to the times and navigated the demands of the shift to online and flexible learning. Reiterating their adage, “No Learner Left Behind”, Tria presented the company’s initiatives and solutions, including collaboration with the Department of Education (DepEd). “Although the shift had initially posed many difficulties, I believe that it is forging a path towards a more sustainable model for education. With this, our immediate goal became ‘to enable students to continue on with learning,’” he averred. 

In addition, PLDT has also partnered with PACU and CEAP, which Tria dubbed as “two of the country’s largest and most formidable educational organizations.”

On PACU’s alliance with PLDT, Dr. Enriquez said that it “goes beyond technology”–  member schools have been enabled to provide a wide array of data plan choices for their students and they have also been able to set guidelines for their stakeholders in maximizing and managing their internet connectivity plans and resources. 

 “To succeed and to thrive, both providers of technologically-driven education must find solutions together,” she closed.
