5Chihlee University of Technology, Center on Innovation in E-Learning, Department of Multimedia DesignTaiwanThe "E-Learning Knowledge System" was developed with the rigorous Delphi method. This system promotes e-teaching by taking the dimensions of "organization" and "e-teaching team" and further subdivided into four sub-levels, 14 categories, and 84 indicators. Based the system structure, we built the "Way E" website, which provides micro-learning courses.Shu-Ping Chang
6Monash University MalaysiaMalaysiaGeneral Studies Transformation 6.0 (GST6.0) outline six initiatives to transform, enhance and improve the learning and teaching of General Studies.

8University of Santo Tomas - Educational Technology Center and Institute of ReligionPhilippinesIn order to express digital learners' faith conceptual understanding, the University of Santo Tomas innovatively redesigned the teaching of college theology through its learning model of Dominican-Thomistic Education by Design (DoT-ED) Framework and delivered using the flipped blended instruction. The program has led students to become missionary-oriented grounded with faith principles for understanding diverse human contexts and situations while applying new knowledge to praise (worship - to adore and praise God), to bless (morals - to bless God by being a blessing to others), and to preach (doctrine - to share and communicate faith). Today's learners can live out their lives as missionary disciples in the modern world while continually involved in one another's lives acting as what Pope Francis calls a field hospital, proclaiming mercy and walking with people in compassion and love.Anna Cherylle Ramos
