Google has launched Mengajar Dari Rumah, an Indonesian version of virtual education platform Teach From Home, to help teachers educate students remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through a collaboration with the Education and Cultural Ministry, educators and students alike will be able to access learning materials from Mengajar Dari Rumah as well as BersamaHadapiKorona, a website run by the ministry.

Google Indonesia managing director Randy Jusuf explained that Teach From Home was designed to support remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, as hundreds of millions of students have been affected across the globe.

“The current situation has put a huge amount of pressure on families, schools and teachers, who have contributed greatly to increasing students’ motivation," Randy said. "We want to help in whatever way we can."

He added that Google had supported remote teaching by providing Google Meet premium features for free for G Suite and G Suite for Education subscribers until the end of September, as well as providing training and tips through Google, YouTube, and YouTubeLearning.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has put a huge amount of pressure on us, and we aim to take more responsibility during these hard times by supporting online learning, helping small businesses and much more,” he said. (dpk)
