ABU DHABI, 7th May 2020 (WAM) — Tech-savviness and an understanding of current work-from-home trends have helped young Emirati students at a government-owned educational institution to smoothly transition to distance learning.
“Our students are young and technologically savvy, reflecting the best of Emirati youth, and they were very aware of the need to impose distance learning to assist reduce the spread of COVID-19, yet they absolutely want to progress their studies to graduate and take their place in the UAE workplace,” says James Morse, President of Rabdan Academy in Abu Dhabi.
“It is worth adding that many of the students understand that distance learning and working will undoubtedly be an important aspect of their training and business lives in the future, so this period will be transformational in many aspects,” he tells the Emirates News Agency, WAM.
