In a bold move for E-Learning in South Africa, Shuter & Shooter Publishers have taken a step to assist in bringing modern teaching and learning techniques to classrooms across South Africa.
In an interview, Sibonelo Mkhasibe, the e-marketer from Shuters, said “We have noticed some reluctance in schools to purchase e-books without knowing how they will work in the classroom. Many schools have already spent their budgets on physical books this year, and cannot afford to spend more at the moment. This is why we at Shuters are giving away a FREE 1-year licence on any of our Grade 1 to 12 Core CAPS titles, purchased before 31 January 2016, through our e-book store.”
This will allow schools that could not afford or are hesitant to take the step into the future of E-Learning, to explore the possibilities this medium offers.
Shuter & Shooter’s proprietary Edu-reader application (available for Apple and Android devices) allows users to read their e-books. This app brings extra resources such as a calculator, conversion tool, notes, bookmark feature, animations, videos and more to their existing CAPS approved material.
This essential tool for E-Learning is available at no cost, downloadable from the Google Play Store and Apple iStore. Once users have downloaded the app, it is a simple matter to redeem the free titles from the Shuters e-book store. Shuters will also have a helpline available from 7am to 8pm, 7 days a week, which can be contacted on 080 7488 377.
Shuter & Shooter Publishers have always believed in the importance of education and in giving back to the community, and hope that this bold initiative will help to expose learners and teachers to the potential that this new medium holds for education in South Africa in the future. – CEO , Primi Chetty
