When schools closed in March 2020, the Ministry of Education in partnership with telecom companies immediately zero-rated e-learning platforms in a bid to facilitate students to access them at no cost. Additionally, radio and TV, with a much wider coverage, have been leveraged to air lessons. The schedule for these lessons is shared periodically on the Ministry’s online accounts and on radio.
Students should continue to actively follow TV, radio, and e-learning activities until schools reopen.
A few private universities have their e-learning platforms ready and zero-rated. Higher learning students are encouraged to reach out to their respective universities to enquire about e-learning facilities at their disposal.
