Online Learning Challenge!

Taking learning online is now the new normal but it is a challenging task to adopt new learning techniques very quickly!

At Aidha, benefiting from the expertise in our community, and huge willingness to help, we were able to draw on the skills and experience of our staff and volunteers to create a new delivery model for our financial education programmes. Now we’re all becoming Zoom experts!

For one of our recent graduates, Siti Mujiati, life became extremely busy under Circuit Breaker and Phase Two but she was determined to keep learning. Online classes allowed her to continue learning at her own pace, though it was different from the usual classes. She soon got the hang of using online video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Facebook Live not only to continue her learning but to connect with her friends and family.
