SOME 5,000 poor students in Sungai Buloh, Selangor, will now have free access to online revision tools to boost their learning with educational assistance.
Students taking key exams this year can use the Osem revision app for revision notes and practise questions through a special programme initiated by Think Osem Sdn Bhd and Sungai Buloh MP Sivarasa Rasiah.
“Since schools were closed during the movement control order period last year, studies have been negatively impacted.
“Many also have limited access to Internet facilities and hardware to participate in online classes.
“This app will allow students to study in their own time without having to worry about cost, ” Sivarasa said during the launch of the initiative.
Students preparing for UPSR, PT3 and SPM this year will have 12-month complimentary access to the app, which would otherwise cost RM399.90 per year.
To date, 1,422 students received access to Osem, while 24 schools registered their students for the complimentary package.
Think Osem chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Radzeen said some 17,000 certified teachers were contributing to the app with lesson notes and question sets that were easy to follow.
“There is also a gamification aspect within the app that helps students to be engaged and makes the learning process more interactive, ” he added.
The Osem app is available via the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Huawei AppGallery.
