Globe users can access DepEd Commons for FREE

Good news!

Globe Telecom is giving the public free data access to DepEd Commons.

Users may access DepEd Commons:

  • even if they have no load
  • The websites, however, will load faster if there is an existing data plan or promo but this will not incur any deduction in mobile data allowance.
  • Globe customers only need to turn on their smartphone’s mobile data and ensure that they are connected to a Globe 4G or LTE network.
  • The same applies to Globe’s Home Prepaid WiFi.

The DepEd Commons is an online platform for public school teachers to support distance learning modalities. It was designed as a direct solution to give access to online review materials and Open Educational Resources (OERs) during class suspensions and other similar circumstances.

According to Yoly Crisanto a Senior VP:Communications/Global Chief Sustainability Ofcr at Globe Telecom Inc. “We want to give the children an opportunity to continue learning even when they are at home. Through eLibrary, we hope that teachers and their students or parents and their children could make full use of the wide selection of content to create a fun and engaging education experience,”

Aside from free access data to DepEd Commons,  they gave also a free data access to other government websites like DOH, NDRRMC and PHIVOLCS.
