Creating better learning spaces for our children


A new e-learning portal to be introduced next year promises to make lessons more engaging. Experts say it can even be an education leveller, giving the same quality resources to all students, regardless of their home background.

Singapore’s education system, which has already won many accolades, may be in for a further shake-up with the implementation of a new e-learning portal.

Touted as a game changer that will level the playing field for students, the Singapore Student Learning Space will be rolled out at all levels, from primary schools to junior colleges, from next year.

The portal, first announced by former education minister Heng Swee Keat in 2013, was to have been implemented at all primary and secondary schools last year, but was held back as the team gathered extensive feedback to shape it.
