The Ministry of Education and Higher Education, in close coordination with the Ministry of Public Health, decided to implement the blended learning approach for the first semester of the 2020/21 academic year. A combination of online learning and classroom-based lessons will be offered to all stages of education across the public and private schools, preschools and higher education institutions.
The blended learning approach aims to mitigate the academic consequences of the school closures and delay of the new academic year.
