A web-based e-learning app
from Jamaica could soon be help-
ing T&T students.
Called Edufocal, the programme
is already helping Jamaican stu-
dents at the Secondary Entrance
Assessment (SEA) and Caribbean

Edufocal chief executive and
founder, Gordon Swaby said he
intends to speak to officials from
the ministry of education as he
plans to launch the programme in
"Four out of our five GSAT stu-
dents were placed in their school
of choice and all scored in the
nineties. Our top five CSEC stu-
dents also received all their passes,"
The Grade Six Achievement Test
(GSAT) is equivalent to the SEA.
More than 3,500 students have
used the programme, he said.
Swaby spoke to the Guardian
while he was in T&T as a Jamaican
delegate for the recently concluded
8th Americas Competitiveness
Forum in Port-of-Spain.
He said the online social learning
platform s approach to teaching is
interactive and not overly struc-
tured, so that students find learn-
ing to be fun.
In Jamaica, the programme has
a monthly subscription rate of
US$15 per student, or US$42 per
student for three months.
Subscribers logging into Edu-
Focal s password-access website
can do tests in their subject areas
and track their overall perform-
"Students and parents can track
their progress on Edufocal. You
can see the areas that you are lack-
ing in, you can see the areas that
you are progressing in. How much
time you are spending on the pro-
gram and the areas that you are
spending the time on," said.
