Welcome to the Singapore Student Learning Space (SLS), a centrally-managed Ministry of Education platform to provide quality online Teaching and Learning resources to its users.
SLS provides its users with access to quality curriculum-aligned digital resources. It offers a space for students to engage in self-directed learning and collaborative learning.
The SLS website (the “Website”) is provided by the Ministry of Education, Singapore (“MOE”, “we”, “our”, and “us”). All access to the Website is governed by the terms and conditions below (the “Terms”).
SLS is accessible to designated administrators, teachers (the designated administrators and the teachers shall be collectively referred to as the “Teacher Users”), external content developers engaged by MOE (“External Content Developers”), and the following persons:
- all Students enrolled in any Government School, Government-aided School, Independent School, Specialised Independent School and Specialised School (collectively, “Schools”);
- all Students enrolled in any school for the education of children with special education needs (“SPED Schools”); and
- such other students as the MOE may from time to time authorise;
(collectively, “Student Users").
In these Terms, the terms “Government School”, “Government-aided School”, “Independent School”, “Specialised Independent School” and “Specialised School” refer to such schools in Singapore that can be found in the School Directory of the Ministry of Education’s School Finder Internet website at https://www.moe.gov.sg/schoolfinder.
In these Terms, Student Users, Teacher Users and External Content Developers are collectively referred to as “Users”. To avoid doubt, words in these Terms that import the singular shall also include the plural and vice versa where the context requires.
