A Philippine-listed firm is pushing an open source-based curriculum to public schools in the Philippines, an idea which is really not new but if they’re successful, they could help save government billions of pesos spent on books.
A PUBLICLY-listed company is planning to make available an open sourced-based curriculum and e-learning system with the help of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), its CEO told INQ7.net.
In an interview, Arsenio Ng, chief executive officer of the Transpacific Broadband Group International Inc. (TBGI), disclosed plans to ride on an open source-based “wiki” system that is designed to deliver an interactive curriculum to public schools in the country.
A wiki is a web application that allows people to modify or edit content collectively. The most popular example is Wikipedia.
