Barbados seeks to introduce e-textbooks in secondary schools from next year

Barbados is seeking to introduce e-textbooks for secondary school students beginning next year.

A report in the Barbados Today newspaper says this will be dependent on at least 90 per cent of the required textbooks being available in digital format.

It's being introduced by the Caribbean Shared Educational Resources Service (CSERS), a student e-portal programme.

Project Director Beverly Smith-Hinkson said her organization, DataLore Inc was working with relevant stakeholders to make digital textbooks here a reality.  

DataLore Inc oversees the CSERS project.
