Students and teachers from the Faculty of Engineering had been serving schools in Sichuan to modernize the e-learning facilities in every summer after the Sichuan Earthquake in 2008.

In this June, a group of 22 members including teachers, alumni, undergraduate students studying Electrical Engineering, Medical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Journalism; as well as postgraduate students taking Master in Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management and PhD in Electrical Engineering, went to Sichuan again to visit and served 4 schools Deyang, Wenchuan, Lushan and Chongzhou.

The latest mobile learning technology – iClass, which was developed by a team of engineering graduates Eric Au Yeung (BEng(EComE) 2010), Ken Law (BEng(EComE) 2010) and Alan Chiang (B.Eng.(CS), 2010) was introduced to these schools. Ken and Eric were also the key members of the HKU Sichuan reconstruction project in 2009 and 2010.

Supported by a generous donor, 20 units of Apple iPad were presented to these schools. Students can use these iPads to interact with their teachers and one another. They can write and draw ideas and share it on the smart whiteboard through the wireless network in real-time. They also drew some greeting cards and share with students in Hong Kong through iClass. While engineering students contributed their technical expertise, two journalism students served the project by writing a journal of the project and filming the important events. This activity was also reported by the local TV media. The news report by a TV channel in Sichuan can be viewed here: (in Putonghua only)
