Interactive learning materials are finally within reach to millions of Filipino students and teachers alike. The Department of Science and Technology's Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI), in cooperation with Science Education Institute (SEI) - DOST, will launch the Courseware Website on 15 April 2009 at the Philippine Science High School in Davao.
Following the success of the 101 elementary science and mathematics modules released in CD copies in 2006, the Courseware Team expanded the project via the World Wide Web, making the modules more accessible to the public. The courseware website was started in October of 2008 in line with the preceding courseware project’s vision to improve elementary science and mathematics education in the Philippines.
The website offers practical and convenient access to the modules which can be viewed online or saved as a personal copy.
The website project was developed corollary to ASTI and SEI’s vision and mission to contribute to the national development by providing innovative solutions using Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
ASTI and SEI are currently working on the development of 500 science and math courseware modules for secondary level which are expected to be completed in 2012.
