Fifty tenth-grade science students from the Flexible Open Distance Education (FODE) Institute in NCD and Central have successfully obtained their Learning Management System (LMS) certificates upon completing a three-month online course.
The LMS program is part of a pilot project launched by Reelea, a digital company in collaboration with FODE, to enhance students’ learning experiences through the online platform.
Principal Anthony Rayappan expressed his satisfaction with this positive beginning for the students, stating, “We are fortunate to have a digitized learning system that students can utilize to advance their studies.”
A Central student from FODE, Laya Kara, shared that the Learning Management System (LMS) enabled her to explore various aspects, including problem-solving, science equations, and fundamental Grade 10 science subjects. She mentioned, “LMS has broadened my perspective and improved my understanding.”
In the meantime, the Education Department is collaborating with the Department of Higher Education, Research Science, and Technology (DHERST) to evaluate the inclusion of Grade 10 and 12 FODE students in the online selection process.
