Public television broadcaster TVRI will air a full-day educational program called Belajar dari Rumah (Study from Home) for three months to help students who are required to study from home as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

TVRI acting president director Supriyono said the program was held in cooperation with the Education and Culture Ministry.

"The program will cover learning materials for students of elementary school, junior high school and senior high school, as well as additional information on parenting," Supriyono said during a press briefing on Friday.

The broadcaster’s acting director of news and programs, Usrin Usman, said the education program would start airing on Monday at 8 a.m.

"Besides educational programs for students from Monday to Friday, we will also air guidance programs for teachers and parents, as well as cultural programs on weekends,” Usrin said.

The programs will focus on developing students’ literacy, numeric skills, character and life skills.

“All materials will be delivered in an easy and entertaining way. The program will be monitored and evaluated by the ministry and civil society organizations,” Usrin said.

Education and Culture Minister Nadiem Makarim said Belajar dari Rumah was the ministry’s effort to help students who faced hindrances in remote internet learning.

"This program could help students who have limited internet access due to economic or geographic reasons," Nadiem said on Thursday as quoted by (dpk)
