Hong Kong > E-textbook Subsidy Mooted
May 7 2012 > To encourage non-profit-making publishers to develop electronic textbooks, the Government has proposed a scheme to provide them with seeding grants, Secretary for Education Michael Suen says
The Government proposes to earmark $50 million to launch the scheme, which would help non-profit making organisations to develop at least 12 e-textbooks sets, Mr Suen said.
About 50 primary and secondary schools will use the e-textbooks on a trial basis, he said. The Government will help the partner schools to upgrade their IT facilities where necessary.
