BIRN Kosovo Assists Development of Online Learning Project

Posted on, a website ran by BIRN Kosovo and Internews Kosova, has provided assistance to the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology in developing an online learning platform which will be used for students who are not currently attending schools due to the risk of the COVID-19 virus.

The learning materials will soon be made accessible to students across the country, including those that do not have internet access.

The ministry said that it received significant support from many media and educational organisations that have provided infrastructural capacities and professional expertise to support the implementation of the initiative.

The ministry added that it is communicating with internet service providers so that families with children who do not have access to the internet can be provided with free online services to enable them to participate in distance learning.

The ministry also provided clarification regarding private schools, which are entitled to provide their own digital educational services, taking into account that teaching must be conducted in accordance with the state-approved curriculum.
