Students across Barbados studying for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) exams now have access to a website to assist them in a number of subject areas.
Wiki-Notes, created by Aron David Truss of The Aron & Christina Foundation and Deepak H. Thani of Caribyte Inc., was officially launched at the Deighton Griffith Secondary School.
Wiki-Notes is free to all users. It was conceptualised by Mr. Truss following his daughter’s experiences at Harrison College, when he realised that many of the issues he encountered at the school 30 years ago were still being encountered by current students, even though new technology could solve some of the problems.
He indicated that one issue in particular was class notes and the effect on students receiving notes when they missed a class or were absent from school; when a student would like to study ahead; when a student needs extra help, but their parents can’t afford to pay for extra lessons; or even when a teacher misses many classes or is absent from school.
