In October 2020, the Office of the Undersecretary for Administration of the Department of Education announced the airing of DepEd TV episodes daily from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM (except Sundays).
According to Education Undersecretary Alain Pascua, the program grid will be adjusted when the DepEd increases its capacity to produce more episodes.
The DepEd is eyeing to produce episodes covering all K-12 subjects, DepEd information and communications technology services director Abram Abanil earlier said.
The DepEd has enlisted the help of the country’s top broadcast journalists to train teachers in delivering lessons in front of the camera.
The DepEd TV has been airing to 15 TV, radio, and cable operators throughout the country. It is also available on DepEd TV and DepEd Philippines Facebook pages and DepEd TV – Official channel on YouTube.
TV and radio are very important in the country because not everyone has access to connectivity. Aside from TV, students will also study through printed and digital modules, radio, and online classes.
