Gulf Weekly Students win prizes for their initiative

Students have created an online tutoring website which aims to provide users with ‘one-to-one’ sessions using Skype services. Users can book services at their convenience and finalise the payment process online too.

The Online Tutoring website took first place and was chosen as the best project for the online education sector at the first edition of the e-Commerce Forum and Exhibition for high school students held recently at Bahrain National Charter Monument in Sakhir.

Al Hekma International School students Abdullah Farahat Al Bunoodha, Alaa Elias Salameh Haddad, Mohamed Sayed Salahuddin Abduljalil and Elias Tawfeeq Hejair, all in Grade 12 and aged 18, won Lenovo tabs, in addition to prize certificates.

They are now aiming to improve the website by adding advanced services for users with disabilities following the competition which attracted 22 teams from schools across the kingdom.

The first edition of the event was held under the patronage of Zayed Rashid Al Zayani, the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism.
