Digital Technologies that Transformed Distance Learning in Indonesia
When it became necessary to close down schools during the COVID-19 outbreak of 2020, educational institutions in Indonesia had to use distant learning programs. Even as the threats of infection eased down after the country’s successful 95% vaccination rollout, Indonesians remained reliant on using tools and methods of information and communications technology. This simply meant using the Internet and its many platforms in carrying out different economic, educational and social activities.
Indonesia’s Tech Savvy Generation Allowed Quick Adaptation in Distance Learning Environments
The country’s tech savvy generation showed impressive ability to adapt to remote learning set ups. The solutions presented new ways of imparting education especially in Indonesia’s remote rural communities.
According to the Association of Indonesian Internet Service Providers (APJII), Indonesia’s 63.5 % Internet penetration has been seeing nearly 69% of the country’s population connected to the Internet. It also helped that the government has been vigorously providing its support in the construction of ICT infrastructures. Doing so had paved the way for the transformation of distance learning in the country, by using new digital communication tools and equipment.
Online or distance learning enable city-based Indonesian teachers to reach and teach students in rural communities. It also gave opportunities to rural teachers to obtain training without need to travel to the big cities. Knowledge sharing and lectures are simply shared by way of streamed webinars.
One such big tech company that helped institutions set up the online learning requirements is AVer. Its innovations are mainly focused on making exchange of large data possible with the use of different digital communications equipment.
