It has been accessed by over 6 thousand teachers in Indonesia before officially released
Marsya Nabila - 30 November 2020
Zenius announces the launch of Zenius untuk Guru (ZuG), a free learning management system created by teachers, for teachers. This platform can be used by teachers throughout Indonesia for free, for all subjects, and at all levels of education to facilitate the management of learning activities.
Zenius's Chief of Teachers' Initiative, Amanda P. Witdarmono explained that the development of ZuG started with the company's mission to improve Indonesia's educational competence to the global level. Through their ongoing relationships with teachers, they often face challenges, especially during the pandemic.
Examples include finding interesting study materials, creating test questions that match students' cognitive levels and understanding, and assessing student work results. Then, the teacher must also design teaching and learning activities that are fun, motivating, and easy to accept even though they do not interact directly with students.
"ZuG Harir is a co-creation platform to help teachers teach, specifically in distributing a subject matter, sorting and assigning questions, and obtaining an analysis of student work results," Amanda said in an official statement, Thursday (26/11).
Prior to its official release, ZuG has been accessed by more than 6 thousand teachers in Indonesia to get input and further refine the platform.
ZuG reduces the workload of teachers in creating course materials and exam questions by providing access to the Zenius material bank, enabling teachers to create online classes, manage student homework deadlines, automatic assessments, and share concept videos from Zenius as additional material.
According to him, with this learning management system, teachers can have more time to do what they are good at, increase quality learning interactions, so that students have high literacy and numeracy skills. ZuG itself can be accessed via the official website.
In the previous explanation, the Co-Founder & Chief Education Officer of Sabda PS. said the company will continue to maintain free access forever, including 80 thousand concept video content, practice questions, and answers, in order to target 30 million students to use Zenius.
Meanwhile, the company is said to have 15.7 million users spread across 300 cities and districts.
