About the Project

Laerskool Stellenbosch required a holistic solution that would be in line with their e-learning goals. They needed:

  • A solution to the challenge of heavy school bags in the form of digital textbooks,
  • An efficient way to distribute content and enhance the curriculum,
  • A reduction in printing cost,
  • A way to curb losses in terms of textbooks and additional notes handed to learners.
  • Support for students and staff
  • A web store allowing the purchase of prescribed ebooks
  • One solution that would fit in with their BYOD (bring your own device) policy.

ITSI’s comprehensive platform, including the miEbooks Reader app, provided a solution that addressed all of the needs of Laerskool Stellenbosch.

Laerskool Stellenbosch is a public primary school situated in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. The school has 824 learners in total. ITSI’s platform was first rolled out in 2016 to grade 5 and 6 learners. In 2017, grade 7 learners were also added onto the platform.
