Students get free e-education app

The Cambodian Union of Youth Federations (CUYF) has teamed up with E-school Cambodia to deliver free of charge online learning for grades 1 to 12 to keep learning on track amid Kingdom-wide school closures.

A press release from E-School Cambodia said: “Through the CUYF under the leadership of Hun Many, we are giving students the chance to continue their learning via our app, free of charge.”

It said subjects in the App include Maths, Khmer Literature and English from grades 1 to 6; Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Khmer Literature and English from grades 7 to 9; Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Khmer Literature and English from grades 10 to 11 and outstanding students, and Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Khmer Literature and English for grade 12.

The press release said the app will aid students, especially those in preparing for their Grade 12 examination.

E-school Cambodia chairman Chhun Leng could not be reached for comment on Tuesday.

On March 13, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport also launched E-learning free of charge for six subjects including Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Khmer Literature. It advised students to continue learning by themselves via the Ministry’s Facebook and Youtube channels.

“This programme is designed to enable students to continue their studies anywhere, especially in preparation for grades 9 and 12 examinations,” the ministry said.

The ministry shuttered all public and private schools from kindergarten to university level effective from Monday until further notice in response to rising cases of Covid-19.

A press release on Monday said “The Ministry wants all parents and guardians to encourage children to study at home. Children should avoid crowded areas such as public swimming pools, gyms, playgrounds and other places where the spread of the virus could occur.”

Lin Soleak Panha, a grade 12 student at Tuol Tompoung High School, told The Post on Tuesday that she is still managing to connect with teachers in Skype-based group chats.

“Isolated studying is good if we have contact with teachers. We can find lessons by ourselves and when we have questions we can chat with our teachers. However with the E-learning app, I don’t know who I can approach to ask questions,” she said.
