Upon completion of each course, learners are awarded digital badges. They also need to complete their ePortfolio – a digital résumé of projects that they work on, showcasing their accomplishments, skills, and capabilities. See ‘Digital Badge and ePortfolio’ section below on the difference between digital badge and certificate, and also the importance of ePortfolio.
Classes are run weekly, except during public holidays and centre-scheduled holidays. Our Learning Centres offer either 1-hour/week or 2-hour/week classes.
Learning is delivered via Learning Management System, using similar platform as many top universities worldwide. This system is highly engaging for students in both physical and online classrooms, and allows them to collaborate across geographies.
To earn a completion badge for each course, your child needs to complete at least 6 projects and present 1 showcase project during Open Day.
Your child completes the course at her own pace. To inculcate self-learning attitude, the lessons are divided into
There are 2 opportunities to engage with the principals in our Learning Centres:
You will be updated on your child’s progress – what she has learned, her character strength, and areas for improvement. Your child’s ePortfolio along with the accumulated Digital Badges will be made available to you.
Everyone is required to showcase their final projects to the public i.e. parents and friends. All parents will be invited and encouraged to bring along others. Open Day is NOT a competition but a dedicated time for the students to share what they have built and reflect on their learning.
This encourages your child to continue the projects even at home, hence deepening the learning. However, if you do not have a laptop, do let us know in advance for a special arrangement.
Upon completion of each course, students need to complete their personal portfolio otherwise known as ePortolio. It is like a digital résumé of projects that they work on, showcasing their accomplishments, skills, and capabilities.
Instead of relying on standardized testing as an evaluation, companies and universities are showing more interest in the informal learning that students gain outside the classroom.

For some subjects like Physical Computing and Embedded System, you will need to buy hardware kits. To keep the cost low, we use open source solutions and design the kits to be re-used across multiple subjects.
