Lapus on CyberEd project: It will make children learn better

“What will cyber education achieve? It will make our children learn better. It will make the teachers teach more effectively” Lapus said. “They will be retrained. The principals would be able to manage schools more efficiently. The schools will be online with management, with the division, with the region, and they’ll be online like bank branches’

CyberEd project will be implemented in partnership with Tsinghua University, China's top technology university, which manages the China Education and Research Network that covers 320 million beneficiaries.

The project is a satellite-based distance education program which provides real-time interactivity to public schools. It will link all Department of Education (DepEd) administrative units in the country, including the central office, 17 regional offices, 187 division offices and 37,792 public schools.

CyberEd will provide 12 video channels, wireless wide-area networking, local area networking and wireless Internet to even the remotest area of the country.
