The Projects of QEF e-Learning Ancillary Facilities Programme

The Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) and the Quality Education Fund (Fund) collaborate to jointly promote the "e-Learning Ancillary Facilities Programme" (the Programme). The QEF has reserved HK$500 million for the implementation of the Programme. It consists of 22 projects covering emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Big Data, and Metaverse.

All funded projects and e-learning tools in the Programme are developed in collaboration with university scholars, educational organisations, technology experts, and participating schools. They cater to the learning and teaching needs of different stages and subjects. The funded projects will be completed in phases between 2024 and 2026 and will be fully launched in the market thereafter. Schools can choose to use the project outcomes based on their specific needs.

As the strategic partner of the Fund, HKPC is committed to:

Introducing excellent e-learning solutions and providing professional support services to recommend suitable projects for schools. Please click here to watch introductory videos of the 22 projects.

  • Regularly updating information and activities related to the Programme's projects (such as workshops, lectures, and school trials).
