Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust

Founded in 1884, The Hong Kong Jockey Club is a world-class racing club that acts continuously for the betterment of our society. The Club has a unique integrated business model, comprising racing and racecourse entertainment, a membership club, responsible sports wagering and lottery, and charities and community contribution. Through this model, the Club generates economic and social value for the community and supports the Government in combatting illegal gambling. It is Hong Kong’s largest single taxpayer, one of the city’s major employers, and its Charities Trust is also one of the world’s top ten charitable donors.

Working with the Government, non-governmental organisations and community partners, the Club’s Charities Trust proactively seeks out the root causes of social issues, bringing multiple and cross-sectoral parties together to address them through innovative approaches. While continuing to fund a wide range of projects, the Trust is placing special emphasis on four areas of strategic focus:
Youth – Empowering youth for a hopeful future
Elderly – Building an age-friendly Hong Kong
Sports – Promoting active participation and sportsmanship, making sports fun and accessible to all
Arts, Culture & Heritage – Building a culturally vibrant Hong Kong, enriching lives and promoting social inclusion

The University of Hong Kong (Technology-Enriched Learning Initiative)

We are the Technology-Enriched Learning Initiative 科創習新 (TELI), a team of e-learning technologists, instructional designers, multimedia professionals, software engineers, game developers, researchers and collaboration associates under the Teaching and Learning infrastructure of The University of Hong Kong (HKU). Our mission is to showcase, facilitate and improve technology-enriched teaching and learning (e-learning) across HKU. We hope to use technology as a tool to build genuine partnership with stakeholders in scaling out teaching and scaling up learning.

Technology has continuously developed and changed the way we communicate and access information in the past few decades. Students come to us with a new way to learn and teachers need to respond with new ways to develop the intellectual faculty of our students. Learning, in many ways, is becoming e-learning. We strongly believe that technology has an important role in enhancing, supporting and blending traditional methods of learning with e-learning.

We strive to consolidate and advance e-learning through four main goals:

  1. Delivering high quality online learning resources
    We support all Faculties to develop e-learning modules, online courses and flipped classrooms. We produce professional videos and multimedia materials to support teaching and learning, promotion of education initiatives, and event recording.
  2. Maximising the potential of e-learning design, analytics and development
    We provide individual consultation on e-learning and teaching development projects (e.g., TDGs). We actively explore systems development, as well as web and mobile app design. Gamification is on our roadmap.
  3. Improving e-learning infrastructure
    Developing and improving systems and platforms at HKU for effective learning and aiming to introduce the latest technologies to change learning for the better.
  4. Connecting enthusiastic educators together through e-learning
    We see the value of partnerships and communities of practice in driving teaching innovations. We organize seminars, workshops and online self-help resources to keep the conversations going and to discover new perspectives in technology-enriched T&L.
