Silliman University, as a leading Christian institution committed to total human development for the well-being of society and the environment, adopts mySOUL, the gateway to Silliman Online Distance Learning, for the new academic year.

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.
