For children over the age of 10, daily attendance at schools is not compulsory. Yet, some of the older children attend school only once or twice weekly to get tutoriol support or instruction from a teacher. For the most part, pupils are encouraged to work online from home. Students must complete a minimum number of study hours per years; however, they may make up these hours by studying at home at times that suit their family schedule. They can log on early or late in the day and even join live classes in other countries. In order to ensure that each student is learning adequately, computer software will automatically monitor the number of hours a week each student studies online as well as that students’ learning materials and assessment activities. Reports will be available for parents and teachers. The software can then identify the best learning activities and condition for each invidual student and generate similar activities. It can also identify areas of weak achievement and produce special programs adjusted to the students’ needs.
