Ebooks Helped Jurong Primary Students

Jurong Primary School was one of the earliest schools to be deploying KooBits as their choice of ebook software for their education. Mr Stanley Han, the CEO of Personal e-Motion Pte Ltd (PEM), the start-up company behind KooBits, said that with the KooBits Author software, anyone can create an interactive ebook in a breeze.

"We are able to blend a wide range of multimedia content you find in the market. This reduces the learning curve of creating a multimedia content. So, even a primary school student, without much IT background, can create fantastic multimedia content within a short period of time."

Some primary and lower secondary students feel that with the technology behind this ebook software is rather easy to learn, and has helped them in their journey through learning. Some of the teachers from Jurong Primary School have started to notice that the quieter students have started to write more, thanks to KooBits. KooBits brings the full potential of ebook technology into digital learning, publishing, social media and entertainment. KooBits editing tools allow users to intuitively create engaging digital content within a very short period of time, as compared to other tools. Here are some testimonials from the Head of ICT of Jurong Primary and some of its students.

"My favourite feature is the animation because I can move it anywhere I want," said a Jurong Primary School student.

"This software is interesting and I can use my imagination and write the composition in a different way," said another.

"In my school, KooBits is used by all the four language departments to enhance the pupils' composition writings skills. Pupils are now more motivated, interested and engaged in writing composition, especially with the multi-media features of the tool," said Mr Tamil Charleston,
Head of Department of IT.
