Remote learning in Bahrain: Everything you need to know about TV lessons

Eight hours of lessons are now being broadcast on Bahrain TV Channel 2 (sports channel) to help kids with remote learning.

All schools, universities and other educational institutions have been closed until further notice to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

In the meantime, students are expected to complete their learning at home using the lessons which are also being uploaded to YouTube and being posted on social media.

So far, more than 145 lessons have been recorded in a mix of English and Arabic using four TV studios. The lessons are presented by a mix of teachers and specialists.

Broadcast during regular school hours, the project has been overseen by the Creativity and Electronic Media Department.

Assistant Undersecretary for Radio and TV Abdulla Khalid Al-Nassar said, “The Ministry of Information Affairs harnessed all its human and technical capabilities to ensure that the project succeeds and benefit students, in light of the challenges the world is going through with the spread of Corona Virus (Covid-19).”
