High school education delivered via the web

A project in the Philippines aims to digitise the entire high school curriculum as an alternative to taking it in the normal classroom setting. Some of the online modules have been piloted in four designated e-learning centres located in public schools or designated Telof (Telecommunications Office) government calling offices.

“The e-learning modules are ideally targeted at high school drop-outs or out-of-school youths who wish to finish and get a high school diploma, especially those who feel they are too old to go to school,” said one of the project’s commissioners.

Research into the efficacy of this approach would be very interesting and, if positive, have far-reaching implications for other countries wanting to foster life-long learning.
