Intel Malaysia and the Ministry of education have signed an agreement to make the country more competitive in the knowledge-based global economy by helping students develop digital skills.
Both parties are agreed to implement a 1:1 e-Learning model under which students can access and use their personal computer in the classroom. Malaysia is the leading country in the Asia-Pacific region for implementing the ICT Education initiative. The company will donate around 200 units of Classmate PCs in the span of three years. The Classmate PC would be fully equipped with Microsoft XP Professional Edition, Microsoft Office 2003 and Learning Essentials. The 1 :1 e-Learning initiative offers both teachers and students continuous access to a wide range of software, Internet and all other digital resources for teaching and learning.
