The Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) of Philippines has launched a project, called “e-eskwela” (electronic school) to make public high school education completely accessible over the Internet.
The project, e-eskwela aims to digitize the entire high school curriculum as an alternative to taking it in the normal classroom setting. CICT has partnered with the Bureau of Alternative Learning Systems under the Department of Education (DepEd) to launch the project nationwide. Of the total 80 modules, around 40 have been digitized and made available online. The CICT has piloted the online modules in four designated e-learning centers, located in Roces Avenue in Quezon City, San Jose, Bulacan, Mandaue City in Cebu and Cagayan De Oro City. The e-eskwela project is part of the Basic Education project that attempts to develop e-learning components for primary and secondary public school education.
