  9. 9. Our Point of View (PoV) on e-Learning Learning happens any where, any time, and any direction We envisage an e-Learning solution will enable learning: a. In-side and out-side classroom / campus b. In different subjects of different class levels c. During and beyond school time d. Fit into school-based curriculum e. Support on-line and off-line mode of learning School Parent Technology Publisher Too many hurdles… A long lasting battle…
  10. 10. An e-Learning Story
  11. 11. An e-Learning Story An aided primary school established in the 70’s: a) 3000 sq. meter b) 24 rooms with library, 3 special rooms, 3 activity rooms, MMLC with 40 legacy computers, indoor/ outdoor playground, school hall, etc c) 6 class levels with 18 classes • each class with 20 to 35 students• each class with 20 to 35 students • Total 450 students d) 35 teachers with 80% over 10 years exp e) 5 – 10% students with special education needs f) School internal network setup in 1998 with major / minor upgrade in 2005 g) Principal foresees a new wave of eLearning is coming but some students (5 - 10%) even do not have a decent computer and Internet access • 20% computer bought 7 years ago and Internet access that could not support watching YouTube HD videos
  12. 12. Principal’s Challenges Mr. Principal: e-Learning is the must-go direction. Where is my finish line? When to reach such line? Expensive network infrastructure upgrade is a must. Is big- bang infra upgrade really “hassle-free”?bang infra upgrade really “hassle-free”? How other schools reach their finish line? (Ask a young IT-savvy teacher to answer these questions…) We need to buy some mobile devices to kick-start. But should I buy mobile learning devices for each student? Will parent support BYOD? (Test water by talking to a few parents in PTA…)
  13. 13. Teacher’s Challenges Mr. Teacher: I worked here only for 5 years. I am assigned to kick-off eLearning for the whole school with 80% (~30) teachers worked 10+ years in this school. How to have these teachers to adopt eLearning in their class within two years? Seems mission impossible. What is my role? IT admin? Change agent? CIO? (Ask a star teacher friend or EDB second teacher in COE…)
  14. 14. Unsolved Problems The problems are: 1. A teacher is a teacher. Usually he/ she is not an IT architect nor a consultant… 2. BYOD is the solution for 1-to-1 e-Learning. However,2. BYOD is the solution for 1-to-1 e-Learning. However, resistance from parents is usually huge… 3. Asking expert is a good start. But such star teacher is usually super busy in his/ her own school. Do not expect him/ her can work side by side in your school…
  15. 15. WebOrganic’s Value Proposition to Schools 1. Neutral Not-for- profit organization 2. Strong community center and family network School Parentnetwork 3. Expertise in eLearning 4. Strong vendor/ partner / school network 5. Expertise in proposal development and project delivery Parent Technology Publisher
  16. 16. Infrastructure Upgrade Big-Bang vs By Phase Big-Bang: 1. “Hassle-free” for the designed end-product, e.g. network. 2. Know when to reach destination. By Phase: 1. Need to manage dependencies (could be complicated). 2. Less resources requirement to start. Usually look for “low-lying fruit” asdestination. 3. Risk of total failure. 4. Usually the end-product require small budget relative to school’s overall expenses level. 5. Likely being over-size at the beginning. Usually look for “low-lying fruit” as “quick-win”. Favored by management. 3. Shorter time-to-market. 4. Tempting to stop in the middle, i.e. die in the middle. 5. Need extra effort for “work-around” before final phase. Some wastage. 6. More room for continuous improvement. Good for building internal knowledge.School Technology
  17. 17. Why Phasing? • One-off Cost – Infrastructure upgrade – End-device – Supporting device • Re-current Cost – Additional TSS – H/W Maintenance – S/W Maintenance Alternative: BYOD Item 1 & 2: of $$$ Item 1 & 2: Largest amount of $$$ – Supporting device – LMS platform – Integration service – Teacher / TSS training – S/W Maintenance – New apps – Teacher / TSS training 0 200,000 400,000 600,000 800,000 Cash Flow Requirement Cash Req
