Students benefiting from virtual classes
TDT | Manama
The Ministry of Education has provided 1,162 online lessons in the second semester through the application of Microsoft Teams, the ministry’s Planning and Information assistant undersecretary has said.
The ministry has opted for virtual classrooms following the closure of schools in late February as part of efforts to help stem the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). “The interaction of students in the major virtual classes has reached very high levels, with a daily participation average reaching 32,000,” Nawal Al Khater said.
All students taking the lessons have accounts that enable them to use all Microsoft 365 applications and benefit from the lessons provided by the teachers, carefully selected to teach the 92 courses included in the application, Al Khater added.
Other educational tools activated by the ministry to ensure the sustainability of the educational process include the educational portal and digital educational content on the ministry’s website, along with the televised lessons broadcast on Bahrain TV and posted on the ministry’s YouTube account, she added.
