Ruangguru Launches Facility to Simplify Students and Teachers Interaction
Last three months, teaching and learning activities carried out from home (school from home) to avoid the spread of Covid-19. There are many obstacles faced by students and teachers during distance learning (PJJ).
One of them is the lack of interaction between teachers and students due to various technical issues. This situation makes teaching and learning activities less effective because students do not understand the material being taught.
To overcome this, Ruangguru has just launched a new facility called Brain Academy Online. Through this facility, students and teachers can interact directly through live teaching methods and online discussions.
According to Ruangguru’s Vice President of Business & Operations Ritchie Goenawan, Brain Academy Online strives to be a solution to improve students’ learning processes. Moreover, this facility was also developed based on input from parents of students.
“We hope Brain Academy Online can be a solution for parents and students, by presenting facilities that facilitate access for children to communicate, interact, and get guidance directly from the teacher,” said Ritchie in an official statement from Ruangguru, Friday (07/03/2020).
Therefore, Ritchie said through Brain Academy Online, students can communicate directly and learn with Star Master Teachers, the instructors from the best State Universities (PTN) in Indonesia.

Not only that, but this program also has several facilities that can be utilized by students. The following is a complete list that students can use from this service in Ruangguru:
