However, the Ministry of Education has launched a special e-learning portal for both primary and secondary schools. The portal will help supplement the self-study material so that students are not far behind once schools are reopened.
According to the ministry, over a million learners from both private and government-aided schools have enrolled on the platform. The ministry also sent special codes to the registered learners to access the platform.
The education ministry director education standards, Dr. Kedrace Turyagenda confirmed the development. She is also the one supervising the implementation of the development.
She said the registered students are part of the pilot phase and that they will expand it to other learners.
“The project is under pilot and we will start with the already registered group. It will be expanded later to cover all school-going children,” she said.
Turyagyenda further said the ministry has so far uploaded both English and Mathematics for the lower primary and secondary school levels.
The lower primary covers from P1-P3 and lower secondary covers S1-S4.
Going forward, she said they will use the platform to upload any necessary materials for learners, even during holidays.
