Acer Empowers Students and Teachers with E-Learning Tools amid COVID-19 Emergency
Acer for Education, a global division that brings innovative technologies to the schools of tomorrow, announced that it is ready to support local schools, teachers and students with the resources they need to continue impactful learning during the Coronavirus outbreak.
“As a leader in the e-learning space, Acer believes in the power of computing to spread knowledge and are proud to provide today’s generation with the instruments they need to develop 21st-century skills and succeed in the information age,” says Susanna Ackermann, Head of education for Acer Africa.
As part of the Acer for education programme, the company offers forward-thinking adaptive learning products and software solutions for schools across the world and in response to the pandemic and forced closure of schools, Acer’s alliance partners, Microsoft and Google have granted free access to their more robust teleconferencing and collaboration services.
The company has also created a dedicated Remote Learning page (https://euacerforeducation.acer.com/remote-learning/) for teachers to reference webinars on how to run remote learning, EduTechTeam online training and Appsevents. The page also features a helpful comparison of the top collaboration tools for ease of use.
“The current health crisis has impacted learning in ways never imagined however, this has not deterred us from finding innovative ways to ensure that learning in schools continues without compromising on the comfort and quality of learning and teaching.” adds Ackermann
Acer is committed to monitoring the tools made available by its entire education ecosystem and will update the page daily with relevant information to assist educators with deploying remote learning, managing classes interactively and recording lessons for learners. In turn, this ensures the continuity of the teacher-student relationship, beyond the classroom.
