DLSU-Manila pioneers
interactive CD on Religious Studies

In line with De La Salle University-Manila’s efforts to integrate internet technology in teaching, the Religious Studies Department (RSD) will launch an interactive compact disc (CD) featuring a full course material.

The first of its kind in the local academe, the CD will be officially launched on August 29, from 11 a.m. to 12 noon, at the E-classroom (M306). Titled “Pilipinong Kristiyanong Moralidad,” it is a compilation of reading materials, and case analyses for the RELS3 subject.

The course material was developed by Dr. Eduardo Domingo, RSD faculty. Instead of publishing a book, he opted to go interactive to keep pace with the students’ growing use of the internet and to make religion classes more interesting.

RELS3 is a three-unit course with a theme centered on Christian morality. The subject provides an analysis of the moral dimension of the Christian faith as it meets the challenges of modern life, particularly in Philippine society. Domingo wrote and translated the CD content in Filipino to place the topic in its cultural context.

The interactive CD seeks to complement online instruction done in the Integrated Virtual Learning Environment (IVLE) website. The IVLE is an online courseware management system designed to bring students and instructors of the university in a virtual learning environment.

DLSU-M’s Center for Educational Multimedia (CREM) assisted in the design of the CD, developed its interface, and organized the content. It is the first full course material on CD to be developed by CREM. Brother Mike Rapatan, FSC, director of CREM, encourages faculty to undertake the same course-related projects to supplement classroom teaching for enhanced learning.

The CD launch is part of the Buwan ng Wika celebration sponsored by the Department of Literature and Philippine Languages.
