NAMCOL videos: Mathematics, English, Physical Science and Accounting
he Namibian College of Open Learning (NAMCOL) has produced these 16 video lessons, developed through a multimedia capacity building programme supported by COL. The videos, for students in Grades 10 (JSC) and 12 (NSSCO), cover lessons in English, Mathematics, Physical Science and Accounting. They were developed by NAMCOL staff, supported by training from Mindset Network.
The video lessons are now freely available to learners and the general public. Broadcast of the lessons began on 31 August 2009 on Namibian national television. The videos are also available at learning centres across Namibia, NAMCOL bookshops, and the COL and NAMCOL websites.
The Namibian Ministry of Education is providing funding to continue the educational broadcasting initiative for the next three years. The video lessons are also being made available to conventional schools in Namibia, with the aim of improving learner outcomes on a broad scale.
The videos are about 15 minutes long and are from .5 to 1.0 GB in size. They will take a while to download or start playing.
