ACCOLADES: Frogtrade Ltd, developer of the Frog Virtual Learning Platform which is being implemented in more than 10,000 schools in Malaysia, recently won the ICT Provider of the Year title at the British Educational Training and Technology (Bett) Awards 2013 in London, the United Kingdom.
This accolade follows on the heels of the 1BestariNet project launch in Malaysia, which saw the nation becoming the first in the world to equip all its schools with an integrated learning solution comprising the cloud-based Frog Virtual Learning Environment (Frog VLE) and 4G Internet connectivity.
The awards are considered to be the most prestigious in the education sector. Every year, only the most deserving winners make it through several rounds of rigorous judging as a panel of 50 judges drawn from a bank of experienced teachers with outstanding Information and Communications Technology (ICT) knowledge, education consultants and advisors, and high profile ICT journalists, shortlist organisations and products that show a clear understanding of the field and its needs, with a focus on what actually works in the classroom.
Under the 1BestariNet programme, YTL Communications (YES) and FrogAsia, both part of the YTL Group, are working closely with FrogTrade to deliver a holistic learning experience to schools in Malaysia through Frog VLE.
