Malaysia chooses Frog to transform teaching and learning nationally

Leading UK learning platform provider, Frog has announced that it has been selected by the Malaysian Ministry of Education (MOE) as the learning platform technology for all of the country’s 10,000 state schools under the country’s 1Bestarinet Project.

The 1Bestarinet Project is being undertaken by the Malaysian Government to provide internet access, as well as a virtual learning environment, to all state schools in Malaysia. Following a tender last year, the project has been awarded to YTL Communications Sdn Bhd (YTL Communications) who will be providing internet connectivity to all the schools through its high speed wireless 4G mobile network.

The Frog learning platform will be delivered through FrogAsia Sdn Bhd (FrogAsia), a joint venture between Frog and the YTL Group of Malaysia. This project is set to radically transform the way teaching and learning is delivered in the country, and positions Frog as one of the largest learning platform providers in the world.
The Frog learning platform is an inclusive solution that will meet the needs of all schools, regardless of their abilities or geographical and socio-economic barriers. All schools, whether urban or rural, will have access to the same, high quality resources and content, giving equal delivery of education to all Malaysian children. The new learning platform solution will support collaboration between high and low performing schools by sharing the best teaching methods and resources – helping all schools to raise standards in the way teaching is delivered to students.
