In order to deliver a richer learning experience for its students and educators, Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP) tapped Globe Business to upgrade its learning system with a technology infrastructure that'll assure the school stays ahead of the curve and stays true to its promise of excellence in maritime education and training.
The Bataan-based institution founded in 1998 by the late Capt. Gregorio Oca today boasts of state-of-the art facilities that are compliant with not just the requirements of the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers but also OPITO standards–the global industry standard in oil and gas safety, skills and competence.
It was in 2017 when the school tapped Globe Business to upgrade its digital ecosystem of education and connectivity solutions. MAAP has its own dedicated internet connection powered by Globe Business Direct Internet which allows its faculty and personnel to fully access its subscribed bandwidth. Through this robust network solution, student learning and school operations have become seamless.
The school saw the need to use Managed WiFi in its library, student dormitory, and social halls to give its students better access to learning materials even outside the classroom. This solution also allowed them to better manage its network, particularly the access of students to the school’s website and to social media platforms, allowing them to ensure their students use their laptops and devices for lessons or other school requirements.
MAAP now has 200 units of mobile WiFi with 25GB data to equip students and teachers with fast and worry-free internet connection. Through its partnership with Globe Business, the institution also recently expanded its Google Workspace for Education subscription to enrich the teaching experience of its educators and allow them to collaborate and communicate with their students utilizing easy-to-use learning tools on a secured platform.
With the capabilities of Google Workspace for Education, MAAP now enjoys the convenience of streamlined document approvals, data loss prevention, powerful search and management tools that enable teachers to organize, access and track classroom learning, among others.
