E-Learning Jamaica Company Limited (e-LJam) has re-branded its internet-based learning tool targeted at students preparing for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) exams.

The re-brand and update of what is now called the e-LJam Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) has made the online resource much more user-friendly, as it will allow students to access all of e-LJam’s resources from a single location.

“The e-LJam VLE formerly known as the Central Repository for Educational Materials (CREM) has brought together all the resources developed or acquired for High School students as part of the e-Learning High School project,” Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of e-LJam, Avrill Crawford told JIS News.

The e-LJam VLE is also more interactive and animated, which makes it more attractive to users.

There is currently content for 11 subjects on the VLE including English, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Information Technology, Physics, Geography, Social Studies, Integrated Science, Building Technology and Spanish.

The content has material for the Caribbean Examination Council’s (CXC) CSEC Examinations, targeting students in Grades 10 and 11.

Students in grades seven to nine may also utilize the learning environment, as there is some content available for this group.

The CEO also highlighted what e-LJam calls its ‘Item bank’. This section comprises at least 30,000 items in areas that are frequently misinterpreted by students, and that students usually have difficulty with. These questions along with their answers can be found in this section.

Additionally, Mrs. Crawford told JIS News that along with questions and answers, videotaped lectures, PowerPoint presentations, as well as links to videos on YouTube can be found on the environment. These lectures focus on hard to grasp topics.

She is encouraging students to utilize the service throughout the school year instead of only during the examination period.

Users may access the resources at the VLE address at www.e-learnjavle.org.

The e-LJam VLE forms part of the High School Project which is funded by the Universal Service Fund (USF) and implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information and the Ministry of Energy, Science and Technology.
