The idea that technology can revolutionize education is not new. However, the Internet, coupled with mobile, more affordable end-user gadgetry now lends itself as an enormously powerful digital medium to enhance the teaching and learning experience across the globe. Advances in information technology have enabled the “personalization” of the learning experience by providing access to learning and assessment resources – anywhere, anytime.

eLearn.Punjab aims to facilitate and encourage the use of educational technologies by providing digitized content, relevant supplementary resources, and online assessment tools for students and educators. As a first step, digitized versions of science subject text books for 9th and 10th grades are being made available online – along with links to a sea of supplementary material available over the Web. In future, the same content may also be pre-loaded into laptops or tablets, or made available in the form of CDs. The introduction of online self-assessment features as well as centralized course/content management tools for public schools is also planned.

We would like to make eLearn.Punjab a meaningful and exciting place for learners and educators to go to. We encourage our visitors, private sector entities, and international agencies to explore, contribute, and collaborate with us in this regard. Please visit eLearn.Punjab frequently, and send us your suggestions, feedback, links to resources, possible support via your organization’s CSR initiatives etc.

Project Objectives and Progress

 

Project Objectives Progress
Development of web-based repository will be equipped with multimedia resources in the form of interactive textbooks for K-12 (Science and Math), Teacher guides and Practical notebooks.
  • Grade 6-10 Science and Math available at eLearn.Punjab
  • Practical Note-books of grade 9 and 10 are also available online.
  • Non interactive teacher guides are available.
  • Story Books are available.
Now, project aims to develop physics, chemistry, math and biology of grade 11 and 12. Project aims to pre-load offline content in upcoming laptop distribution scheme for intermediate students. The development of digital content of grade 11 and 12 including subjects’ physics, chemistry, math and biology is almost complete. Review process is underway.
To develop digital content for grade 1-5 (Science & Math) Development in progress
To expedite the development, both in-house and outsourced approaches will be adopted. Localization including Urdu voiceover has outsourced to Virtual University
Content developed by Centre for Technology in Education (CTE) of ITU will be incorporated in upcoming version. Video lectures developed by CTE-ITU are being incorporated in grade 8.
Assessment platform developed in the project titled “IT enabled assessment” will be incorporated in this project and question bank of various grades will also be added. In progress
Offline version of all digital books will also be developed for tablets, smart phone and desktops. Offline version has developed and is being tested at pilot initiative.
Digital content is being promoted through exhibitions seminars, workshops and different orientation sessions. Details are available at following pages
Availability of content at local servers of schools. Content servers are being installed at selected public schools.
Offline content will be introduced through DVDs, USBs, memory card, and tablets. Content has distributed via memory cards and tablets to selected schools pilot initiatives.
Project aims to introduce local Wi-Fi hotspots at educational institutes, public libraries and public waiting areas.
Pilot implementation of digital content is also the core component of PC-1 to ensure following
  • To address technological gaps
  • To address adoption issues.
  • To address content weakness.
Implementation support till project life is also included.
Pilot implementation is in progress, details are available at following page
