These learning modules supported and improved education at secondary schools. Content of these modules were interactive materials for studying along with interactive e-learning teaching aids for topics of different subjects taught at secondary schools.

The following step was to provide an e-learning website to all secondary schools that would have an interest in using it. All materials and modules were tried out at participating secondary schools.

 

Outcome: Outcome of the project was an e-learning website with modules mentioned above in the form of an interactive and practical materials source for teaching of various subjects at secondary schools.
