Teach online during COVID-19
Schools are important, if not the most important, places for children to enjoy their education. Teachers and students are in close contact which creates an optimal environment for knowledge sharing and exchanging perspectives. However, current societal developments like the coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak cause an increasing need for remote learning.
The ability to learn and teach does not dissipate once teachers and children leave the school premises. LessonUp offers a solution that provides additional support to students preparing for their exams or students suffering from long-term illness.
Also during the coronavirus outbreak, LessonUp can be of importance. Due to the coronavirus schools need a contingency plan in order to give classes remotely. Below we explain how you can use LessonUp as a teacher for remote learning.
Teachers that are in need of a solution for remote learning during the coronavirus outbreak can use LessonUp's online teaching platform and its functionalities up to 30 days for free.
