Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha said the Ministry designed online learning while other materials will be delivered through Radio, TV, You-tube and other digital platforms.

KICD announced that it had expanded the existing broadcast for schools programme by more than two hours in the wake of coronavirus pandemic.

We are out to ensure that children are not left behind in terms of learning progress due to the crisis we are facing as a nation,” KICD acting Chief Executive Officer Joel Mabonga said.

Learners were also advised to obtain digital content of all KICD approved materials from the Kenya Education Cloud through www.kec.ac.ke.
