DepEd: Distance learning for those who don’t have internet access.
The Department of Education (DepEd) is pushing distance learning as one of the lesson delivery options for those learners that don’t have internet access.
The education agency eyes the online learning platform as an alternative way to continue learning amid this pandemic. However, not all learners have gadgets and access to the internet.
