I hardly talk about academic let alone recommending websites on it.
Until last weekend, this has changed as I bumped into the co-founder of a free online tuition website at â€œArt for Grabsâ€ exhibition. The young chap is friendly and articulates well. He introduced to me his baby and why he goes through all the hassles from fund sourcing to creating videos for his website.
His free website is created based on the Malaysian syllabuses and his target is primary and secondary students. Itâ€™s also built based on the philosophy of Khan Academy, the world’s highly successful educational site.
On hindsight, I had heard of it from someone but I put it on the back burner until I met Edmond who mentioned the website again.
While he has steady fundings but his most pressing problem for the website is publicity. Not many people know about it and Edmond wanted me to help him spread the word about his website.
I donâ€™t recommend lightly but after checking out the website and after listening to Edmondâ€™s noble plans, I decided to share it with you, my reader.
First, the website can be an excellent platform for students to do revision and compensate whatâ€™s left out at school by teachers. Second, for parents who are tight on budget, they can send their child here and get free tuition.
The website I am talking about is Edunation. Itâ€™s clean and well organised. You can check out the 4-year-old website here:
Do come back often as I understand from Edmond that new videos are being uploaded from time to time. Hope you get the most out of this free service.
