 Mobile Learning Incentive Scheme (2017–2020)

In order to encourage students to make full use of mobile learning via iBookcase app, the University introduced the Mobile Learning Engagement Incentive Scheme in 2017. This scheme is applicable to both full-time and part-time OUHK students at sub-degree, undergraduate, postgraduate and research postgraduate levels (excluding LiPACE students). Students will be eligible for a HK$500 incentive if they have fulfilled all the requirements of the scheme.

Requirements:

Students must have:

1.   downloaded the iBookcase app onto their smartphones or personal tablets. Currently, iBookcase is only compatible with Android and iOS operating systems;
2.   enrolled on an initial course between the 2017 and 2019 Autumn Terms;
3.   made use of the iBookcase app to study for the initial course between the start of term and the end of the examination period, such as by browsing the course materials, and using the embedded learning tools; etc.;
4.   completed and passed this course* in or before the 2020 Spring Term; and
5.   subsequently enrolled on a second course within the next three terms, up to and including the 2020 Spring Term.
*   Students should note if they can complete the initial course on or before the 2020 Spring Term:
    If the initial course occupies one term of study, students must have enrolled on it in or before the 2019 Autumn Term.
    If the initial course occupies two terms of study, students must have enrolled on it in or before the 2019 Summer Term.
    If the initial course occupies three terms of study, students must have enrolled on it in or before the 2019 Spring Term.
    The above information is for reference only. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their course completion time allows them eligibility to this incentive scheme.

Note:
Each student is only eligible for a single HK$500 incentive as part of the Mobile Learning Engagement Incentive Scheme. Should any dispute arise, the decision of the University shall be final. The web version shall prevail should there be any changes to the details of the scheme.
