In response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the 17th eLearning Forum Asia (eLFA 2022)  will be hosted virtually  for the first time in the Philippines this year with live attendance from host university academic staff.

As a pioneer and leader in massive-wide eLearning adoption in the Philippines, the University of Santo Tomas, the oldest university in Asia, is honored to be the institutional host for the third virtual eLFA and is looking forward to bringing the same exchange opportunities to our participants in this new interactive virtual format. 

The largest ever disruption in education has been brought on by the COVID-19 epidemic. Amid the recent crisis, now is also the defining moment to rethink education.  We have the opportunity to progress with forward-thinking systems that offer everyone access to high-quality education powered by eLearning technologies.  The theme of this year, “Shaping the New Era of Learning: Rethinking the Way Forward”, invites thought leaders and educational practitioners in exploring cutting-edge eLearning practices to develop transformative competencies  in an inclusive, resilient, technology-rich learning environment  for  the best future of learning for all learners.

Specifically, this forum will bring educators and eLearning technologists to share best and flexible teaching practices, showcase learning  innovations and exchange insights on challenges and opportunities as we embrace emerging technologies ahead.
