Jun 27, 2020

The Sindh government launched on Tuesday a mobile educational application for kindergarten to grade five students in the province.

"The learning app can be downloaded on an android device," said Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani in a press conference. "Through the application, students will be able to gain a realtime experience similar to what they gained in schools."

The app is called SELD Learning App by Muse and it can be downloaded from here.

The minister said that development was made as there were slim chances of reopening schools amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The app has an online library with e-books that can be accessed by both teachers and students. It has chat rooms to connect them and has a variety of poems on it. Students can also submit assignments and sit for tests through it.

"We are trying to create an environment that stimulates the learning experience of students online," Ghani explained.

Sindhi will be included as a separate subject on the application.

The app will be used by parents who will add their children's classes to it when first logging in.

"For this purpose, the government has trained more than 500 teachers in the province," he revealed, adding that pilot projects of the concept of a digital classroom have already begun in Mirpur Khas and other areas.

The minister acknowledged that initially, it will be impossible to reach even 50% of the overall students in the province. "With time, however, we will keep adding things to it and improve the app," he assured.

Separately, cable operators in Sindh have also been instructed to run an educational channel for students round the clock. "We are also working on utilising FM radio for educational purposes," Ghani added.
