Consultancy, Development of E-Learning Materials (ITE) (INT7741)

The ITE project in collaboration with Liberary Without Borders developed and deployed ICT tools such as IDEASBOX[1] and KOOMBOOKS[2] to improve teaching and learning in the focused schools. These ICT tools have servers that host model lessons from diverse fields of study, and materials such as documentaries, books, practical experiments on various subject areas. These resources are accessed by both teachers and learners to improve on their teaching and learning processes. These resources are generic and global in nature and do not align with Ghana Education Service approved syllabuses for Junior High Schools.

As part of the processes of building the ICT tools (ideasbox and koombooks), Oxfam in Ghana was supposed to provide LWB with local content materials based on the Ghana Education Service approved syllabuses for Junior High Schools. This was not done because of copy right issues in the country. Consequently, the resources and materials in the ICT tools are currently not context relevant and not based on the GES approved syllabuses.

The IT company to be selected should be able to produce model lessons and other e- learning resources based on Ghana Education Service approved syllabuses for Junior High Schools.

The IT company should be ready to give Oxfam in Ghana and the Project schools full user right to the content to enable them to update the content any time they deem it fit.
