PETALING JAYA: Malaysians should utilise the online platform to learn knowledge in the new norm, says Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon.
In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Deputy Education Minister said that online teaching has become a necessary method for education.
''During this period, it is no longer feasible or possible to implement the traditional face-to-face learning.
''Cloud and home learning are the new normal teaching models adopted by most countries in the world,'' he said at the virtual launching ceremony of the Talk Zone on Monday (Feb 8).
Dr Mah called on more guests to share via the Talk Zone platform, so that the public will be able to improve themselves during these difficult times brought by the outbreak.
The Talk Zone is one of the series of activities by GoCare Charity Crowdfunding, aimed at supporting and promoting life in the new normal, assisting vulnerable groups who are in need of support, and to show our care for frontline personnel.
GoCare is a charity initiative under the Crisis Relief Squad of MCA (CRSM).
Divided into two categories, the Talk Zone offers the "Online Community Talk" to enhance awareness among citizens through knowledge and experience sharing.
At the same time, companies may also leverage on the "Online Business Talk" to disseminate professional information and knowledge in various fields to the public, and help businesses promote their products and services in their respective sector.
The "Online Community Talk" covers topics related to medical, traditional Chinese medicine and healthcare, stray dogs issues, parent-child interaction, citizenship, psychological counselling and music classes, benefiting over 3,000 viewers.
Those who missed the live broadcast can still watch the replay on the LetsGoCare Facebook page.
