The education ministry says it is satisfied with the online teaching and learning activities implemented during the movement control order period to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Deputy Education Minister I Muslimin Yahaya said a study conducted by the ministry showed that only 36% of students had no access to the internet or the necessary devices.

“The ministry is aware of the problem,” he told Bernama. “To overcome it, education TV will be promoted to ensure the best level of education for the country.

“Students and teachers are advised to proceed with online learning and to conduct face-to-face learning as we need to have both.

“E-learning will not only help produce more creative teachers, but will also produce students who are able to think critically, take information, analyse, draw conclusions and master the digital world.”
