MOOCO-PLUS™ stands for ‘MOOCO Portable Learning Utility Solution’ and is a MOOCO enhanced version built for educational purpose. Latest education policies encourage learning opportunities and experiences to be raised not only within traditional classes but also off the site of classrooms.

Lee Kau Yan Memorial School (LKYMS), established in HKSAR since 1964, has arranged many exciting activities for the students in order to promote their interests and attitude in active learning.

On April 4 2009, the School has organized an excursion trip to Lam Chuen River, which is located in Tai Po, for the F.1 students to analyze the cause of water pollution and recognize the importance of environmental protection.

MOOCO-PLUS™ takes this valuable opportunity to work with the School to allow the students to exploit the features of mobile devices to carry out the assigned activities on an interactive platform between the teaching staff and the students.

They submit answers and photo snapshots to the questions in a freely manner while the teacher can give related comments to their work at anytime and anywhere.

From the activity review, both teachers and students appreciate with MOOCO-PLUS™ as the learning tool and give positive comments.
