Bahrain's Ministry of Education launches new teaching tools for remote learning

With the kids now off school until further notice, home learning is in full swing across Bahrain.

Alongside eight hours of lessons being broadcast every day, the Ministry of Education is launching a number of teaching tools to help mums and dads who are teaching their kids at home.

These include the launch of an additional online service that uses Microsoft Teams and Office 365 to help with teaching.

A subject teacher will be able to use the service to present lessons, while specialised supporting teachers can answer questions from students.

Education Minister Majid bin Ali Al Nuaimi said, "This additional service enriches and enhances the ones that have been activated during the past weeks through the ministry's portal, video lessons via the TV channel and 14 channels on YouTube.

"The ministry is committed to providing the best online opportunities for students and diversifying the means of learning, so that they can continue studying at home and interact with their teachers."

The Ministry of Education has also teamed up with Amazon Web Services to create an electronic education portal, which is being used by nearly 150,000 students and more than 18,000 teachers.

It has 372 eBooks, more than 750 sample questions and exams, plus 6,582 lessons from school teachers.

Parents are also able to access the portal to follow up on activities carried out by the school.
