A Georgian-language version of the Microsoft Teams is already accessible to 55,000 school teachers and 600,000 school children in Georgia.
In collaboration with the Education Management Information System (EMIS), Microsoft Teams has been translated into the Georgian language, enabling school teachers to use learning tools online in their native language.
Microsoft Teams is a unified communication platform including chat, video meetings, and file storage system.
Microsoft Education Portal has also been translated into Georgian, which means that the educational resources, including video lessons, are accessible for teachers and schoolchildren. An interactive Georgian-language Chat-Bot and an electronic magazine will also be integrated on the portal.
The Georgian Ministry of Education says that the Georgian online library el.ge has been integrated on the portal, which will make it even easier for teachers to access the educational resources on the website.
In late March, the Georgian government stated that schools and higher educational institutions would remain closed to prevent the spread of coronavirus, after which schools and other educational institutions switched to remote classes.
