The Brunei Ministry of Education has allocated US$5.9 million fund for Information Technology project, which will connect students in Brunei schools.
The government will distribute more than 200 laptops in both primary and secondary schools as a part of the agreement. Both portable and mobile teaching is expected to take place in schools. The government has initiated the Mobile Teaching & Learning (Mobitel) project for the supply, delivery, installation, testing, commissioning and maintenance of related hardware and software for mobile teaching and learning in government primary and secondary schools. The Mobitel project does not limit ICT-aided teaching and learning to special rooms like a lab. Teachers will be able to monitor and control students’ computers with Remote Desktop Management software. The Mobitel project is one of focussed areas under the e-Education project, which is part of the E-Government initiatives.
