Open High School System (OHSS)

I stumbled upon this article published last June 26, 2008 by GMANews.TV. The article is about delivering educational services to high school students using print, radio, television and computer-based communications, satellite broadcasting, teleconferencing, and other multimedia learning and teaching technologies.

This only means that high school students who are physically challenged or have difficulty in attending regular classes, they can avail of this new mode of learning which will be available soon. We can now say that everyone has an access to education online.

Here’s the full article:

Distance learning gets push

MANILA, Philippines - The House of Representatives has approved on final reading before it adjourned early this month a bill that will institutionalize distance education.

Called “Open High School System (OHSS),” House Bill (HB) 4082 seeks to set up an OHSS division under the Department of Education.

The OHSS seeks to deliver educational services to high school students using print, radio, television and computer-based communications, satellite broadcasting, teleconferencing, and other multimedia learning and teaching technologies.

Students under the OHSS will be allowed to study on their own without having to regularly attend classes in conventional classrooms.

The system will be open to those who have finished their elementary education as well to adults who are high school qualifiers under the Philippine Educational Placement Test.

Principally authored by Albay Rep. Edcel C. Lagman (1st district), HB 4082 seeks to set up Distance Learning Centers in a regular secondary schools in the regional or division level.

Four similar bills are pending at the committee on education, arts and culture.

It goes to show that open and distance learning is the trend nowadays.

  1. I’ve seen a lot of sites in this niche, but I must say that his is one of the best. I’ll definitely be checking back for more good posts. Thanks

  2. How is it that just anyone can write a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said something extremely impressive more like youve painted a quite picture above an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you actually think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not truly say something?

  3. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your site. You have some really good articles and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an email if interested. Regards!

  4. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, and this is the best article I’ve come across. I’m a article fiend so I’ve actually seen a lot already.In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made as awesome content as youhave, the web would bea lot more useful than ever before.

  5. Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I
    think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

  9. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not
    even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, excellent site!

  10. Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established website like yours require a massive
    amount work? I’m brand new to running a blog but
    I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring
    blog owners. Appreciate it!

  11. This has been really open-handed with people like you to allow openly precisely what most people would’ve supplied as an electronic book to make some cash for their own end, most notably seeing that
    you could have done it if you decided. Those secrets also
    worked to be a good way to be aware that other people have a
    similar fervor much like my own to learn a lot more around this issue.
    Certainly there are lots of more fun situations ahead for those who discover your website.

  12. Even a slight mistake in the data is enough for the
    failure of burning the game. If you’ve got a pal who owns a copy
    of the game as well then you can equally play collectively
    over the web. A must have for anybody, as it improved on
    the flaws of the last game.

  13. Marvelous, what a website it is! This website provides useful data to us, keep it up.

  14. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year
    and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
