CSENIE worked in partnership with Sam Shui Natives Association Lau Pun Cheung School, C.C.C. Kei Shun Special School, TWGHs Tsui Tsin Tong School and Open Knowledge Association for a funded project titled Special school's school-based learning materials digitization scheme and establishment of "E-learning for Inclusive Education Association (ELFIE)". In this three-year project, ELFIE set up a learning management system RainbowStar, and developed a total of 572 electronic textbooks in different subjects. The team has conducted over 1000 sections of e-Book trials, lesson observations, and teaching exchanges. We also conducted research and sharing sessions for teachers, therapists, scholars and researchers. Until 2021, more than 60% of special schools were RainbowStar users. In the pandemic, the outcome was with significant impact on supporting the home learning for students with intellectual disabilities. The digital inclusion was finally achieved.
