EDB launches "e-Navigator: Multiple Pathways under the New Academic Structure" smartphone application

     The Education Bureau will launch the smartphone application for the programme searching tool "e-Navigator: Multiple Pathways under the New Academic Structure" tomorrow (May 18) to assist students under the New Academic Structure (NAS) to gain easy access to programme information from local institutions based on their interests.

     Under the NAS, students could have rich and diverse choices in planning their own pathways for future studies according to their interests, career aspirations and personal development, a spokesman for the Education Bureau said.

     The Education Bureau, in partnership with the Hong Kong Association of Careers Masters and Guidance Masters, developed "e-Navigator: Multiple Pathways under the New Academic Structure" as a career exploration tool to help students search for programme information across different local institutions and levels including degrees, higher diplomas and associate degrees.

     "Over 3,000 local programmes from the Joint University Programmes Admissions System, the Information Portal for Accredited Post-secondary Programmes and the Qualifications Register can be searched using this one-stop application.

     "All programme information is based on existing publicised information from official websites and students can access the respective websites to view detailed information on individual programmes via hyperlinks.

     "Furthermore, students may also enter their expected or actual Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination results to search for appropriate courses. This enables students to make desirable plans for future studies as well as several contingency plans if necessary," the spokesman said.

     "There are three versions of 'e-Navigator', namely the website version, the mobile website version and the new smartphone application.

     "This newly developed application allows students to search for programme information anytime and anywhere using their smartphones," the spokesman said.

     The "e-Navigator" application is available for downloading via smartphone or at the "e-Navigator" website ( Details of this programme searching tool are also available at this website.
