If or when face-to-face classes resume, will students be given a choice on the mode of learning delivery?

Beyond this time, if and when the resumption of face-to-face classes is allowed under IATF and DepEd/CHED regulations, Mapúa will provide students the option to choose between Digital Choice or Blended Learning Mode.
Digital Choice is the online learning mode, but combines online and offline, synchronous and asynchronous sessions. In Digital Choice, there are no-face to-face classes. This is for parents and students who remain anxious about returning to campus. Students in Digital Choice cannot shift to Blended Learning Mode for the remainder of the academic year.
