Educational institutions in Dubai are being urged not to exchange paper materials with their students, except for text books.
That’s according to an update on the Knowledge and Human Development Authority's (KHDA) website, which says the directive is applicable until further notice for schools and universities as well as for training institutes and early learning centres.
They have also been asked to ensure that teachers and students have access to proper electronic communication tools so that there are no disruptions to the distance learning process.
The private education regulator added that schools are currently scheduled to reopen in September, but it‘s still not known in what form or whether that will change.
It’s working closely with the federal government, so that when a decision is made, it will be applicable to all schools in the UAE.
