Throughout the year, developmental work was undertaken by the UK-based Notesmaster team to improve the free, interactive online learning portal. As a consequence, NM 2.3, the latest version, was launched in September 2012. To heighten awareness and provide teachers with knowledge of how to navigate the portal efficiently, training and sensitization workshops were held in the second and third quarters of the year in Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.

The portal,, provides a dedicated online resource for teachers and candidates of CAPE and CSEC examinations, educational institutions and other CXC stakeholders. It provides easy access to learning materials and enables content using various media to be created or uploaded under the related areas of each syllabus. In addition to education professionals, through agreements between Notesmaster and third parties, other sources of content include National Open School of Trinidad and Tobago, E-Learning Project of Jamaica and KHAN Academy of India
