Child Rehabilitation Centre

Project Description

As a child and education focused organization CRC has taken an initiative to introduce the concept of Live Synchronous Learning Online Campus (“Tele Education”) which is being implemented by a leading ICT institute in UK. Under this system the classes will be conducted by reputed and well qualified academics based in Colombo Centre and the students will be based in a class room situated within their districts. This will take the form of a class room as the lecturers and the students will maintain eye contact and the students are in a position to interact with the lecturer using a remote controlling device and the mike. The number of students for a class will be restricted to 30 and a short evaluation will be carried out to measure the quality of the presentation and the knowledge of the students on the subject matter within the class room setting. The classes will be conducted using the SAT system that will connect the main centers with the district centers. There are two main centers in Colombo and Gampaha which will provide further services after the classes. The communication system is given below:

Specific Objectives of the Project

  • 1. To provide the educational opportunities that are available in Colombo and Kandy to the student population in the Ampara and Batticaloa districts at low cost through the use of the latest Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

  • 2. To increase the competitiveness of the student population of the Ampara and Batticaloa districts in the Sri Lankan labor market and increase their employment opportunities through the provision of courses that will give them employable and marketable skills.

  • 3. To motivate the student population who are deprived of attending marketable academic courses by affording them the opportunity to participate in the academic courses that are available in Colombo and Kandy.

System of knowledge distribution:

This knowledge transferring system has been successfully experimented by CRC in October, 2012 in the Ampara district with the presence of around 300 post A/L students and higher education authorities. Both participants praised the system and approved the implementation of it.

Under this system it will be possible for us to link our class rooms in Ampara and Batticaloa with the Colombo Centre and conduct GCE O/L and A/L classes and other professional courses such as CIMA, ACMA, ACCA, IPS etc. We will take action to conduct English language classes for pre and post GCE O/L students. We plan to introduce specialized English courses such as IELTS and TOEFEL. This will bring about vast changes in the educations sector in these districts and give the same opportunity that is available for the students in Colombo and Kandy. This will result in the reduced education cost and motivate more youth to make use of these educational opportunities for their own growth.
