Educational videos for G-12 students prepared

A thousands new educational videos on a variety of core subjects will be made available for self-study by grade 12 students on the website and social media pages of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, according to minister Hang Chuon Naron.

In a letter dated January 28, Chuon Naron announced the fruition of a joint project to create the “Smart 1,000 Grade 12 Video Collection” and issued instructions to capital and provincial education departments to promulgate the multimedia materials for high school seniors.

In September, the ministry formed a partnership with NGO Open Institute and telecoms operator Smart Axiata to produce the videos with $1 million in funding provided by Smart Axiata for educational initiatives to combat social effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The educational video library contains 1,000 videos on subjects including mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, geography, history, civics, ethics and Khmer literature taken from the ministry’s textbooks for grade 12 classes. They will be shared on the formal social media of the ministry of education,” the letter read.

Ministry spokesman Ros Soveacha said on February 1 that the spread of video education contents is a participation in other mechanisms to continue promoting new ways of learning and teaching in the education sector by using a variety of methods in particular.

Soveacha specified that students may access the videos on the ministry’s Facebook page (facebook.com/krou.moeys.gov.kh), YouTube page (youtube.com/moeyscambodia) and official website (elearning.moeys.gov.kh).

Soveacha added that for the 2020-2021 academic year, the ministry had instructed state high schools to implement a “short study programme” including required and elective subjects. Required subjects pertain to those found on the national exam while determination of elective subjects fell within the purview of local school boards according to their assessments and circumstances.

In a joint press release, the ministry and Open Institute report that two studios have been prepared for the production of high-quality online video content to continue to enable equal access to distance learning for students around the country.

The video library programme is intended to become an important resource for high school students and the ministry as it develops and implements future initiatives. Initial funding was set to focus on implementing information technologies for education, crisis management, social inequality and personal hygiene.
