to the student through self-learning modules. There is

an average of five modules to a course and an average

of five lessons to each module. Student

accomplishments are measured through a series of

written tests: the self-administered lesson tests, the

comprehensive module tests and the final test, which

is taken personally at the College. The submission of

learner activity requirements is also a mandatory

component of the system. Oral validating exams are

given on an at need basis. Those in the provinces or

abroad may take the final tests in pre-designated

centers with which CAP College has linkages such as

Philippine Embassies and Consulates or Tutorial

Centers and other schools in the area. CAP College

These may be taken in any of the 13 CAP College Learning Centers located nearest the student's residence or province. The request for a final exam schedule should be submitted not later than the first week of April, August and December. Only after a student has passed the final examinations for all subjects enrolled shall he or she be permitted to register for another term.

Mid Trimestral final examinations are also allowed for fast learners.

Learner Support Collaterals. CAP

College employs media mix technology to supplement and enhance its print modules called CAPSels or CAP Self-Learning Series.

At present there are 100 CAP Buddies – Your One Week Guide, 139 The Finals Series, 34 CAP College on Air cassette tape, 10 VELMODs or video-enhanced learning modules, and 8 CD ROMs and 3 computer- based courseware. These were designed and produced in support of the CAP Tutorial Program.

individualized tutorials are provided through telephone conferences, fax, postal service, online (synchronous and asynchronous via CAP College on the Web), and face-to-face. Group tutorial services are also offered, which may be availed free-of-charge by any student with active status for three hours every trimester. Accredited tutors provide scheduled group tutorials in CAP College Learning Centers nationwide.

Distance Learning Centers. The CAP

College's network of Integrated Finance Processing Centers (IFPC's), which are located in major cities, double as Learning Centers. They provide tremendous support in increasing educational opportunities for as many Filipinos as possible. Each center is equipped with two-way communication facilities such as radio, radio-modem, facsimile machines and soon, the Internet. These are networked and interconnected into a nationwide communication system. Each learning center is manned by a CAP College Building Coordinator who facilitates the activities in each area. Accredited tutors in each province help monitor the academic status of every student.

CAP College School for the Deaf.

The CAP College School for the Deaf was established in 1989 to provide a tertiary level training program for the deaf in the Philippines. Sign Language is used as the medium of instruction. Now on its thirteenth year of operation, it has produced 152 successful graduates who have joined the workforce of several well-known corporations. From the initial offering of Associate in Arts in Information Technology, the school has expanded its academic curricula to include a Modified Correspondence Program for degree courses such as Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) utilizing captioned telecourses specially designed for deaf students as an alternative instructional technique.

Modified DE is also offered in satellite schools in Naga, Davao, IloIlo.

DEAR CAP Scholarship Program

DEAR CAP,

which stands for Distance Education Approach and Response for

Collegiate Advancement and Proficiency, is a nationwide scholarship program for underprivileged and underserved sectors of society. It is financed by the leaders in the pre- need industry, CAP Education and CAP Pension.

The current 3,284 DEAR CAP scholars underwent rigid screening and are classified as full, partial and subsidized scholars of CAP College. So far, a total of 423 DEAR CAP scholars have already graduated. With a CAP College diploma at hand, a more promising future is within reach. Most of them are now employed in better jobs, have received the long-awaited promotion, gained higher self-esteem and brought pride to their families.

Current beneficiaries include deserving private and government employees, police and military men, physically challenged individuals, out-of-school youth and other special groups. Even prisoners from the maximum-security compound of the Bureau of Corrections and inmates from the Correctional Institute for Women have sought earning a college degree as a means of rehabilitation and skills enhancement.

In the process of administering the DEAR CAP Scholarship Program, CAP College has built a network of partner organizations consisting of 25 non-government organizations, 5 government agencies, and 21 provinces and 33 municipalities thru the local government units.

Graduation. Upon

satisfactory

completion of all requirements, the scholastic record of the students shall be forwarded to CHED for consideration and issuance of the Special Order. Graduation ceremonies are held every April at CAP Development Centers in Makati City and in the provinces.

Networking and Linkages. CAP College continues

to expand its network and develop its linkages to make its programs more accessible and available to as many students as possible. To enhance its Learning Center Network, the school is currently working on linkages with other Distance Education institutions to complement its existing efforts and resources.

It has also developed linkages with government and non- government organizations here and abroad. Some of these notable institutions are the Open/Distance Learning Foundation (ODLF), the Asian Association of Open Universities (AAOU) and the International Council for Distance Education (ICDE), and the UNESCO-International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP). These provide sources of valuable information on educational innovation and technology.
