    Commonwealth of Learning (COL) NotesMaster Initiative
    The Notesmaster initiative with the Ministry of Education, Seychelles’ started in 2014 through the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) with the engagement by the Ministry of Education to support the development of Open Education Resource (OER) content on the Notesmaster platform.  The content on the Notesmaster Seychelles platform is in line with the Seychelles’ national and Cambridge IGCSE curricula and can be accessed by all teachers.
    As part of the initiative, a group of over 100 secondary and primary teachers were trained on how to develop content for the Notesmaster Seychelles.   The initial training was conducted by Mr. Dean Dundas, the Director of Notesmaster, in December 2104 and a follow-up session with a selected group of teachers was conducted via Skype in June 2015.
    In line with the engagement with Ministry of Education, Mr. Dean Dundas effected a second visit to Seychelles between 18th and 27th September 2015.  The purpose of the visit was to engage with the trained teachers who have been targeted to be the first group of Notesmaster Leader Teachers (NLTs). 
    The visit also provided opportunities for meetings and discussions with educators and school leaders so as to create awareness of and promote the COL-Notesmaster Seychelles Initiative and at the same time gain the schools’ commitment and support to sustain the programme in the education transformation process.
