Words: Yasmeen Al-Kouz, ASREN

Over 1.5 billion children and youth around the world have been affected by school closures due to the COVID-19 outbreak. To ensure the continuity of its students’ academic education, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in Morocco has decided to shift quickly to online learning.
