"The OECS Commission’s Education Development Management Unit and the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) continue their collaboration to support Ministries of Education across the region in the development of existing ICT capacities and the creation of new digital resources. A collaborative approach has been adopted to build a knowledge-sharing community involving Ministries of Education throughout the OECS and wider Caribbean. This saw each member state choosing a set of subjects with the aim of increasing the repository of Open Educational Resources (OER) and giving teachers a greater appreciation of the many features available on the NotesMaster e-learning platform. NotesMaster, a custom built learning environment that allows students open access to knowledge and educational resources and to collaborate remotely while learning, was rolled out in the British Virgin Islands late last year in the wake of hurricanes Irma and Maria. The Ministry of Education in the Turks and Caicos Islands was the latest to benefit from this initiative where over 20 secondary school teachers in the areas of Mathematics, Information Technology, Social Studies and Food and Nutrition were introduced to the platform at the Long Bay High School from May 21 – 23, 2018...."
