Utilise e-books or online learning system for primary school pupils to lessen the “heavy bag phenomenon”, urged education groups. Online learning portals such as 1BestariNet should have provided ample learning material for teachers as substitute for additional workbooks without having pupils bringing extra workload to school. National Union of Teaching Profession president Kamarozaman Abd Razak said this “heavy bag phenomenon” had often been overlooked by the ministry. Describing the banning of unapproved workbooks as a good start, Kamarozaman said that to enhance a better learning environment, virtual learning environment (VLE) implemented by the Education Ministry could help in addressing the heavy bag issue.
