Education and COVID-19.
Statement from the CEO: tips and free training for distance education.
These are special times. The whole world is affected by the Covid-19 virus. Extensive measures are being taken in the interest of our public health. Naturally, we support these Corona measures. And we wish to help schools and teachers as much as we can.
Education is a topic that is particularly close to my heart. And it has always been. Our hard- and software make it possible to offer high-quality distance education. Today this topic is more than ever very relevant. Students are obliged to stay at home. Therefore the education sector is looking for solutions to endure the next few weeks.
We organize several webinars in which we offer teachers tips and free training on how to organize distance education. This way, we hope to inspire them and provide answers to some practical and technical questions and concerns. How to use our i3LEARNHUB to share lessons and to teach classes from a distance? How do teachers get started creating digital lessons and what content can be used? Furthermore we offer plenty of ready-to-use material about the Coronavirus. We now make use of our elaborate experience in distance teaching to help those who have never been faced with this topic before.
Moreover, we decided to offer all functionalities of our online platform for free for at least 2 months. The basic options are and will remain completely free. This way, we hope to contribute in offering a solution.
From the bottom of our hearts we wish to thank all teachers and the entire education community who are still supporting their students in these difficult times, who are adjusting their classes and who are available for emergency presence in schools. Together we will get through these exceptional times.
