BrainStreet's online education venture

A friend of ours is making progress in offering online education here in Guyana. Initially it has aimed at secondary school students in Mathematics and English and a few other subjects. Check out the web site at BrainStreet.
The Mathematics content is (partly at least) from EduHub - see here.
Recently they have joined with UWI to offer a Management programme - see the Stabroek News.
