I’m sure that by now many students have been attending online classes planned by school or even tuition centres, but have faced many problems such as inadequate devices and internet problems. Parents have shown worry for their children’s learning progress, but fear not, since the government has recently come up with a different way of learning.
Under the collaboration of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia, educational TV programmes are aired every day throughout the Movement Control Order (MCO).
The aim of this effort is to provide students with an alternate platform for access to learning materials besides online learning. The educational TV programme slot is beneficial to students who don’t have Internet access- they won’t miss out on learning even if they don’t attend online classes, and can still follow up through television.
The programme will be aired for two hours a day on one of Radio Televisyen Malaysia’s (RTM) channels- TV Okey from 9am to 10 pm and 1pm to 2 pm. It can be viewed for free on the myFreeview digital broadcast channel 110, Astro channel 146 and Astro NJOI.
Students who have access to the Internet can visit the MyKlik RTM website (https://myklik.rtm.gov.my/) to view the programme.
For the schedule, you can visit the Ministry of Education’s official portal (www.moe.gov.my) and their social media platforms such as Facebook (Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia), Instagram (@kempendidikan) and Twitter (@KemPendidikan).
The ministry hopes that this effort will be fully utilised by students, teachers and parents to ensure the process of leaning can continue on effectively, even under special circumstances.
So, what do you think about these programmes? Feel free to leave a comment expressing your opinion!
