Key Features of E-Paath

Designed to give engaging and meaningful learning experience to the students.

Closely aligned with the national curriculum to help teachers and students meet the learning objectives.

Modular activities, each module corresponding to a subject and grade.

Covers core subjects in the national curriculum – Nepali, English, science and math from grade 1 to 8 in Nepali and English language.

We have translated the same content in Chepang language for grade 2-6.

All E-Paath content can be translated and used in any language.

Multimedia based, composed of contextualized images, audio, animations and games.

Each activity module has a ‘lesson’ section that help students understand the concept being covered and an ‘exercise’ section to test how well students have understood the concept. There are also small exercise activities within the lessons that help students review and reinforce the concepts that they have just learnt.

Each activity also has accompanying ‘Teacher’s Note’ that explains how teachers can integrate the E-Paath activities in classroom teaching.

E-Paath Development Process

A team of curriculum experts, graphic designers, software developers and translators work together to create E-Paath activities. From conceptualization to design and development, the team has paid close attention to ensure that the activities meet the learning objectives, are fun and interactive, and the graphic elements, text and audio components are contextualized to match students local environment.

E-Paath design and development is based on student-centered learning approach. The learning content is situated in real world scenarios and local context so that learning is personally meaningful to the students. We provide timely assessment so that the students can learn in practice-based approach in their own pace. Along with giving fun and engaging learning experience to the students, we also aim to promote positive attitude to learning and positive self-esteem as a learner.

E-Paath Content

The following table shows the breakdown of learning modules by grades and subjects. The science activities have been prepared both in Nepali and English languages so that learners in both Nepal and other parts of the world can benefit from them.

E-Paath
  • E-Paath is a collection of digital education materials prepared by OLE Nepal. Digital content is the backbone of ICT-based education. Providing laptops with relevant and localized education content increases the possibility of their being used regularly in the classrooms.
  • At OLE Nepal, the development of interactive learning activities is driven by educators who have a solid understanding of education theories, and a thorough knowledge of the national curriculum.
  • The activities are child-centered, tailored to the Nepali context (e.g., the Nepali language is used and the pictures and images also reflect Nepali settings), open source ( users are free to modify, enhance, and tailor the activities according to their needs), multi-media based and fun to use.
  • All the activities developed are based on curriculum objectives outlined by the Curriculum Development Center (CDC). All the activities are conceptualized by our curriculum experts after consulting a number of children’s education books, including those that are used in the schools, along with other education related websites. After conceptualization, they go through a process of graphic design, programming, testing and finalization before being deployed to the schools. Our curriculum experts have started collaborating with their counterparts at the CDC in this process of digital education material development. CDC has formed a team of six subject matter specialists to work with OLE Nepal.
  • The in-house software team has thus been building learning activities designed by education experts. These activities are designed such that they can be used by teachers to fulfil learning objectives outlined in the curriculum, and they fully exploit the power of multimedia by integrating text, images, audio, and animation to make learning both fun and effective. These are subject specific and grade-specific interactive activities (software modules). They have been designed for regular classroom use. The teachers and students will use these software modules as part of the regular instruction and learning process. Using these activities, the students can learn new concepts, do practice exercises (for both class work and home work), and self-assess their progress. In short, these learning activities enhance the possibility of self-learning.
  • The interactive digital content prepare by OLE Nepal are divided into lessons and exercises that allow teachers to deliver the concept effectively while giving students ample opportunities to test their understanding through exercises. Teachers also have the ability to check how students have scored in the exercises. Each learning activity is accompanied by detailed notes for the teacher that explain which learning objective the activity is designed to meet, which chapter in the book the activity correlates to, how the activity can be integrated in classroom teaching, and how to use the activity. There is also a sample lesson plan that the teachers can use to plan the classroom session using laptops and activities.
  • OLE Nepal has also developed a new framework for a lesson integrated activities suite that consists of activities, lessons, summary of the lesson and questions that give students a chance to engage in a self-learning process. This new framework is a result of feedbacks received from teachers, implementers and educators.
