Zoom Collaborates With BC Govt. for Online Tool for K-12 Continuous Learning

Educators will have an easy-to-use video-conferencing and collaboration platform to communicate remotely with their students while in-class learning is suspended to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Ministry of Education has secured and funded licences for the application Zoom for all K-12 public and independent schools in B.C. This will allow consistent access for educators who choose to use it, giving them more ways to communicate with students and parents.

While teachers and schools will have primary responsibility for continuous learning, government also launched Keep Learning BC on March 27, 2020: www.openschool.bc.ca/keeplearning
