How do you run this program?


Generally, students will be coming to Penang Digital Library to learn with us every week. During the program, students will be working on new and challenging projects, answering exercises, quiz, and assessment. Additionally, group discussion, mini competition, presentation, and other relevant activities will be conducted from time to time to ensure a more lively and interactive classroom. Sometimes, we will bring the students to go out from classroom and gather information outside of classroom, because we believe that learning is not always happening in classroom only. By the end of the program, students will be awarded a certificate of completion and an academic transcript.
