organizations such as the PSC that the day-to-day lives of the region’s
children can be enhanced to provide a better learning atmosphere.

Shin Broadband, Earth Wave, and Bilingual Edutainment launch satellite-learning business through ‘iLearn’ Pattaya branch
Last week at iLearn’s main office on the 10th floor
Shinawatra 3 building, Bangkok, there was a contract signing ceremony
between Shin Broadband Internet Thailand, Earth Wave Education Company, and
Bilingual Edutainment in a new business venture to expand education

to R) Kittipong Kittiphat, Bilingual Edutainment Company’s managing
director, Dr. Arwuth Ploysongsang, general manager of Shin Broadband Company
and Udom Praikaset, managing director of Earth Wave Education Co., Ltd.
Shin Broadband, in the leading role, successfully invited
two major companies specializing in high technology and advanced e-learning
and business communication to make the first move in this high demand
service. The iLearn office, including one in Pattaya, will be the hub of
learning for people through satellite communication in Thailand.
Dr. Arwuth Ploysongsang, general manager of Shin
Broadband Company said iLearn is an education center that operates through
high-speed broadband called ‘iPSTAR’ that aims to expand learning
opportunities. The two-way communication works through a high-technology
instrument that is capable of transferring both vision and voice from one
point to all the iLearn branches and vice versa simultaneously.
Students can interact with their teachers instantly
during the question and answer period. Dr. Arwuth said that in the past
students were not able to communicate with their teachers or receive an
immediate response, but at iLearn they will be able to directly discuss
problems with their instructor. Khru Kate and Khru Lilly are two very
popular English and Thai instructors who teach through iLearn.
Kittipong Kittiphat, Bilingual Edutainment Company’s
managing director said the company stresses teaching Chinese as a second
language with the help of the Bi-Ed Center. He said the Chinese language was
not widely taught yet even though it is an important language for trading
these days. He added that the company’s target age groups are between 8 to
15 and 16 onwards.
Besides Chinese language there is a mathematics course
available for children at Mathayom 4 to 6 levels in order to add variety
into the program.
iLearn offices currently operate in 11 provinces:
Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phitsanulok, Nakorn Sawan, Ayuthaya, Nakorn Rachasima,
Khon Kaen, Ubol Rachathani, Chonburi, Surathani, and Songkhla.
The iLearn office in Pattaya is situated in Lotus North
Pattaya and has been operational since June 2003. It has been providing
education through satellite broadband in many courses.
