E-books Software helps Students in De La Selle School

Driven by the government’s call for a “world-class" learning habitat , schools have been lapping up on the latest softwares for students and teachers. This has made KooBits a popular choice among educators for its capabilities as a powerful e-book software. We take a look at how De La Selle School has utilised made use of this software to back their curriculum with technology.

KooBits, an lively e-book software aids users to unobstructedly construct digital books. This e-book reader rids users of complicated procedures to combine different multimedia tools together. For students, it permits them to fully express their creativity; for teachers, it saves time for them and relieves them of the hassle of learning the software. As a result, users can combine Youtube videos, JPEG images, flash animation and MP3 audio files to get a personalised e-book.

Teachers find this e-book reader handy in coming up with teaching materials for lessons. For instance, English and Mother Tongue in the school is taught in a form of a storybook. There is a special keyboard in the programme that allows users to key in Mother Tongue characters . This e-book reader also helps students comprehend topics better when they are tasked to create their own e-books. As part of the National Education syllabus, students were asked to come up with e-books to showcase the different values.

To date, budding writers at De La Selle School have already composed many books to archive in the school’s library.
