Urdaneta City University introduced its institutional Learning Management System (LMS) called “iKonek” in the first semester of the academic year 2020-2021.


iKonek is a web-based technology that allows faculty members to manage, plan, evaluate, and deliver content and learning materials for educational courses. This learning platform has different features which allow students to access educational resources and help them get a quality learning experience in distance education.

The idea of the LMS started with the dissertation of Dr. Alyssa Ashley Malag, College of Health Sciences professor. The iKonek is based on the popular education platform called “Moodle”. It has been developed, modified, and improved by the Management and Information System (MIS) to allow easier access. It is now adopted as the official LMS of the University.

Engr. Nolan F. Castisimo helps the instructors on how to use the iKonek through video tutorials.

Moreover, the MIS also released different video tutorials to help instructors and students navigate various tools and guide them in maximum utilization of its essential features for the enhancement of the teaching and learning process.
