1. The School Information System (SIS)
The school management system was built under the direction of the Minister of Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS). Metfone coordinated with the IT Department and the Department of Education in 25 provinces and schools to implement.
In 2020, Metfone cooperated with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) to successfully implement the system for 150 schools in 25 provinces of Cambodia (digitalization of the data base for 221,000 students; 11,000 teachers; 5,000 classrooms. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, all schools were forced to close. Fortunately, our SIS system can help teachers and students to continue their teaching and studying as normal by accessing e-Learning via SIS system for making courses. Now there are 600 classes running their studying courses via e-Learning. Besides, we also have completed the integration of online learning system, Chat, Dashboard reports, Digital Books into SIS so that teachers and students can easily use this system to communicate together during the current situation of the Covid-19 epidemic.
The implementation of SIS and the integration of these features bring tremendous efficiency to the education sector in Cambodia towards digitizing teaching and studying in schools, saving a lot of money and as well as improving the quality of teaching. Since the successful implementation of SIS in 150 schools, MoEYS and Metfone have aimed to expand SIS to 850 more target schools in this year until covering over 3,000 schools nationwide. And we hope to reach 3 million students and 20,000 schools in Cambodia in the near future.
