SUCCESS STORY: MENDAKI SINGAPORE
The circuit breaker (CB) implemented last year to curb the spread of Covid19 meant students on the MENDAKI Tuition Scheme (MTS) were unable to attend their tuition classes as usual. However, this did not mean that the guidance for the around 3,000 MTS students stopped just like that during the CB for two months. This was because MENDAKI had successfully moved all tuition classes organised at nearly 90 centers into online, through ClassDo's virtual classrooms.
MENDAKI's Deputy Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ms Aidaroyani Adam, said the collaboration with ClassDo was not the first but an extension of previous collaborations. Two years ago, MENDAKI had used ClassDo's virtual classroom to offer online tuition for its students on a small scale.
"We moved the MTS classes conducted at the mosque to the ClassDo platform when mosques were ordered to close around March. Then when CB started in April, we expanded the use of the platform and started offering e-MTS. We found the platform very useful and easy to use by both tutors and students. This had allowed weekly classes to run as usual," she said.
MENDAKI is still using the ClassDo platform as some MTS classes are still conducted online.
