One of the Kingdom’s leading telecom companies, Cellcard, has successfully launched an all-new educational mobile application called iKnow iKnow.
The innovative app, which aims at embracing digital technology while rewarding stellar students who are able to illustrate positive progress, promises lucrative prizes in the form of scholarships to three of Cambodia’s top universities.
App users will stand a chance to win a one-year scholarship to the National University of Management (NUM), Pannasastra University of Cambodia (PUC) or University of Cambodia (UC), with up to five scholarships being offered every week.
Meanwhile, one lucky winner will walk away with a Yamaha QBIX 2020 motorbike every month, throughout the six-month period of the competition.
The launch took place yesterday and was commemorated with a memorandum of understanding signing between Cellcard and representatives from the three esteemed universities.
They are Vice-Rector of the National University of Management Dr Seng Bunthoeun, President of Pannasastra University of Cambodia Dr Kol Pheng and Vice-President for Academic Affairs for University of Cambodia Dr Nhor Sanhei.
Cellcard Chief Executive Officer Ian Watson said the partnership with the universities was a breakthrough for his team who always strive to give customers relevant prizes in the promotions throughout the year.
“The iKnow iKnow App is an excellent way for Cellcard to support students and help them enjoy learning in a way that is suited to their digital lifestyle,” Mr Watson said.
“Most students at this age already have access to a smartphone and are well versed at using them for research and sharing files and reports with classmates for study.
“The iKnow iKnow app will further supplement their digital learning and reward them at the same time.”
Mr Watson added Cellcard had actively participated in promoting the development of Cambodia for more than two decades and education was key to that.
“This new app iKnow iKnow will assist the continued growth and development of Cambodia’s youths’ minds to ensure the nation grows into the future,” he said.
The iKnow iKnow app is essentially youth-oriented as evident in the playful interface and design which also features sound effects and emojis. It can be downloaded on all smartphones running on iOS and Android platforms.
Seeing as the content of the app follows the national educational curriculum, it is best suited to all Cambodian students and youths, ideally in high school from grades 9-12. It will allow its users to access school lessons anywhere, anytime.
For unlimited access to the educational multiple-choice quizzes, users can choose to pay only $0.30 per week.
