Sri Lanka Telecom launches online teaching platform

27 September, 2020

With the increasing dependency on online teaching and learning at present, Sri Lanka Telecom launched “SLT eSiphala”, the online teaching platform that would enhance the digital teaching and learning experience.

The advanced e-learning technologies available on SLT eSiphala, allows teachers to connect up to 20,000 students in a session and create virtual classrooms to organise their teaching. The platform also enables them to conduct live or pre-recorded sessions, along with scheduling online assignments and tests together with marking systems. Online certificates and progress reports for each student can be issued through SLT eSiphala.

The sessions can be made interactive with the chat, whiteboard, screen-share and file-share features. As students can upload homework assignments and projects, teacher and student can track their progress. The mobile-friendly feature of SLT eSiphala makes it more accessible to teachers and students even on the go. Connecting to some of the best lecturers in the island is made possible to students all across the island and benefits them at a time when education is mostly based on the digital arena.

SLT and Mobitel offer special data packages to SLT eSiphala users with dedicated back-end support, through two packages, ‘LMS Lite’ and ‘LMS Max’.
