The Ministry of Education has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Real Studios Limited, an ICT company to implement the Digital Education System.
The initiative will transform Ghana’s educational sector from analog to digital, using electronic reading devices, digital audiobooks, video tutorials and interactive educational materials.
This is part of efforts to support government's free education policy, by providing quality education materials readily accessible to every student in Ghana.
According to the CEO of Real Studios, Muni Reindorf, their plan is to build a factory in Ghana to assemble electronic reading devices and accessories needed to sustain the project after implementation.
The Digital Education System or Digital Classroom is designed to make education accessible to all Ghanaians from the urban to the very remote rural areas. It will also enable students to carry and access an entire library of books from nursery to university on a single device.
Teachers can also send lecture notes to students all over the country.
