The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) joined forces with the University of Stellenbosch in 2009 to broadcast lessons to high schools on selected subjects. We have recorded many hours of lessons in recent years, and now have the pleasure of providing extracts via YouTube. We are classifying the videos according to the syllabus outlined in our Tips for Success booklet made available to every matric candidate in the Western Cape. We are starting with Mathematics and Physical Sciences. This is work in progress. We will add more videos as they become available.
