Initiative Provides Students with Computers to Facilitate Distance Learning
Irtiqaa Foundation has taken initiative to provide computers to families in need who are registered with charity organizations to ensure that their children can continue their distance learning after the Ministry of Education began teaching students through online platforms to overcome the circumstances of the suspension of classes to avoid the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).
According to the foundation, the initiative enables the beneficiaries of charity organizations and social committees to benefit from public and higher education platforms and continue the educational process.
In addition, Deputy Minister of Education Dr. Abdul Rahman Al Asimi monitored the workflow in the Ministry’s platforms for distance learning during the period of suspension of classes in public education institutions in the Prince Sultan Complex of the Riyadh Education Department.
During his inspection tour of the broadcasting of Ain Channels, Al Asimi reviewed 17 channels that allow students of public education to continue learning remotely on the Arabsat frequency 12437MHz in a live broadcast from 8.00 AM to 12.30 PM that is repeated throughout the day, or through the educational YouTube channel around the clock.
Al Asimi praised the efforts of teachers and supervisors in the virtual school, noting that this experience is beneficial to the ministry in many ways and that delivering this service in a short time is an indication of the ministry’s great capabilities, expertise, and competencies that maintain the continuity of the educational process.
He affirmed the support of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the Crown Prince, who have prioritized education and made it a primary focus through budget allocation.
