Want to know more about the Madrasati platform in SA? This article gives a complete overview of this educational platform, its features, and its impact on the education industry in Saudi Arabia.
What is the Madrasati Platform?
During COVID-19, the Ministry of Education(MOE) in Saudi Arabia introduced a supplemental virtual system to support distance learning. As per the government’s announcement, all the public schools in the country were closed due to the pandemic.
The Madrasati platform was, therefore, created by MOE to serve as a virtual classroom. It was to facilitate teaching and learning processes from grades 1 to 12.
Madrasati SA is an e-learning system that supports teachers, students, and parents. According to MOI, over 25000 public and 729 private schools use this platform. Also, during the academic year 2020-2021, more than 90 million virtual classes were conducted in the first semester. In the second semester, over 60 million virtual classes were conducted.
The platform was to be used by the schools initially for only the first seven weeks of the first semester in 2020.
However, as COVID-19 progressively spread, MOE announced that the schools would use Madrasati until further notice. You can either use it through the website or download its application.
