Publishing house C&E ALS shares how books are developing to help students acquire more knowledge 


One of the aspects of daily living that the global COVID-19 pandemic has clearly impacted is learning and education. With the various lockdowns that ensued, limitations in physical contact and mobility have precipitated solutions such as virtual classrooms, digital reference materials, and online teaching methods. 

This situation challenged the effectiveness of traditional printed textbooks. To cope with the changing times, publication companies like C&E Publishing leveraged on the use of technology to upgrade textbooks and entice the students in realizing that studying can be fun and interactive with the use of technology. 

C&E ALS has risen to the challenge of improving the learning experience for Filipinos by becoming a comprehensive learning and research solutions provider. Apart from providing quality printed textbooks, the publication house also focused on multimedia products, digital publications, and e-learning programs for basic education. With innovative and engaging tools and methods, teachers and educators can enhance the formative learning experience of children in the K–12 system.

The company also put up a specialized group that helps academic institutions create engaging environments and ecosystems that foster creativity, collaboration, and innovation among learners. This is made possible through hardware solutions that bring to life technologies such as artificial intelligence or robotics, computer programming, and many other new frontier concepts.

To date, the publication house is working with the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, and University of Sto. Tomas to name a few. It also works with industry organizations and government agencies such as the Department of Education and Commission on Higher Education.
