Unveiled on Friday, the platform aims to not only increase access to digital content, but also enhance opportunities for continuous assessment activities to support curriculum delivery in ICT-enabled schools.

It was introduced to coincide with the imminent year-end exams that grade 12 learners are said to be hard at work preparing for.

The digital content and related assessment activities have already been uploaded on the platform, and are active and available for use, according to the GDE...

“We also aim to encourage and support the ‘bring your own device’ model towards sustainability of e-learning in our schools. This model enables schools that have their own ICT initiatives to benefit from the investment made by the department on the digitising of content, by having this content availed to them through the platform.”...

For grade eight and nine, the subjects are mathematics, natural sciences and technology.
