SNS Network Technology Berhad (Bursa: SNS, 0259), an ICT system and solutions provider, is pleased to announce the launch of a special device deal for students who are increasingly learning in online classrooms and need the tools to facilitate access for online learning.
Ko Yun Hung, Managing Director of SNS (Link) Managing Director of SNS, said, “This special deal is timely as the perfect tool for online classroom learning or hybrid learning given that the government launched the Hybrid Classrooms Pioneer Project. We believe that this special deal makes the devices very accessible to students and levels the playing field for virtual learning situations.”
“These devices are highly adaptable for students to browse through their coursework, take their tests onscreen or maintain a schedule; all while ensuring a smooth experience for classroom interactions. Students will not have to feel that non-physical interactions will make their experiences with teachers and fellow students any less.”
“We are also offering JOI, our smart classroom solution providing a flexible learning approach ideal for hybrid learning and emphasising critical skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. JOI devices are also compatible with the suite of Microsoft Office tools that unlocks the power of creativity and collaboration vital for online learning,” Ko added.
Starting from September 2022, 550 classrooms in 110 schools across the country will adopt the Hybrid Classrooms Pioneer Project as part of initiatives by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to accelerate digitalisation and adopt information and communication technology (ICT) in the public education system.
MOE has also embarked on a three-phase RM1.3 billion programme to improve and replace ICT equipment and infrastructure including desktops and laptops, printers, projectors and charging ports, using the lease-to-use approach, in schools nationwide. The first phase involving RM411.8 million for 3,900 schools is almost complete, with the second phase to replace devices at 3,455 schools with an allocation of RM460.0 million will be completed by early 2023 while the third phase for 3,400 schools with an allocation of RM430.0 million is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023.
The special deals cover HP devices from as low as RM599, with savings of RM400 and Lenovo devices from as low as RM1,249 with savings of RM200.
