MCO: As lessons move online, local teachers and students struggle with uneven Internet access

Radzi said the Education Ministry has asked teachers to consider the constraints faced by parents and students to adapt to e-learning during MCO. — Bernama

When the movement control order (MCO) started, school teacher Alex Rasidin said learning continued for his students through messaging services like WhatsApp and Telegram, as well as Google Classroom.

In one WhatsApp chat group for Form Three pupils, there are only 11 students, said Alex, explaining that the rest, around 30, can’t participate because they don’t have phones.
