Learn with SOUL!

As the official Learning Management System (LMS) of the University, mySOUL is an all-in-one web-based teaching and learning platform where teachers can organize offline (asynchronous) activities like assignments. Students can perform these activities without entering the virtual classroom. mySOUL is capable of conducting real-time (synchronous) activities like video conferencing. Silliman University will deliver the class with offline and real-time activities depending on the need of the subjects. We are aware of Internet challenges. Thus, Silliman’s online distance learning is designed with less screen time without sacrificing the intended outcomes of the subject.

Usage of the SOUL system and its attendant online learning tools shall be considered as consent for the gathering, storage, and processing of the user's personal information, which is subject to the Data Privacy Policy of Silliman University.

    To all faculty, students, and parents:

    In view of the network advisory issued by PLDT dated 23 September 2020, that says,

    “…the operator of the international trans-Pacific submarine cable system, Asia-America Gateway (AAG), has informed PLDT that emergency maintenance activities will be conducted on their submarine cables from Friday, 25 September 2020 8:00a.m. to Wednesday, 30 September 2020 5:00 a.m. (Philippine Standard Time).”

    In this period, Silliman University undertakes the following measures to mitigate the situation:
    1. No real-time checking of attendance
    2. No synchronous activity like video conference and quiz
    3. Longer submission period during asynchronous activities
    4. Provide downloadable formats for reading exercises
    5. Provide away from keyboard (AFK) activities

    These measures will help all stakeholders cope with the situation as internet connection serviced by PLDT and Smart will be affected.

    PLDT in its advisory explained that “the AAG is one of several international cable systems utilized by PLDT. Measures have been put in place to minimize this activity’s impact and to ensure that services remain available to PLDT and Smart subscribers.”

    The university asks for understanding and requests for everyone’s consideration.

    The link below shows the full text of the advisory from the internet provider. When available, the university will post updates. https://www.facebook.com/PLDTpublicaffairs/posts/4441272759277761
