11-11-11: The date seemed to catch the attention of many. Some people connect 11:11:11 to esoteric events while others see it as a very lucky day. According to professional numerologist Alison Baughman, number 11 is often associated with humanity— awakening, uplifting, inspiring, enlightening. True enough, 11:11:11 marks the enlightenment of topnotch school Xavier Cagayan de Oro on what e-Learning is all about and how beneficial it is to the present generation of learners.
With the help of Don Bosco Technical Institute – Makati, one of the leading schools when it comes to excellent ICT-integrated education and its educational partner Diwa Learning Systems Inc., Xavier CDO was introduced to the first and the only fully integrated online learning management system for Basic Education which is Genyo e-learning.
The benchmarking of Xavier CDO started with a short tour to the different school facilities and infrastructures headed by principals Mr. Lito Tenerife and Ms. Ofelia Dantes, School Officials, and Subject Area Heads both from the Grade School and High School.
