The KHDA has launched an online educational platform to help families across the UAE with home learning

As thousands of students across the UAE kick off their home learning programme (hang in there mums and dads), the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) is offering some welcome online support.

Designed to help kids with their e-learning, the educational organisation's new platform features educational apps and websites, as well as support.

Best of all, it is being offered absolutely free throughout the distance learning period.

The portal has been introduced to connect technology and wellbeing-based organisations with teachers, parents and students who are teaching and learning from home.

Dr Abdulla Al Karam, director general of KHDA, said: "Many people in our community have been coming to us to offer or ask for help during this time. This portal is one way of connecting those who have useful products and services with those who need it."

"In the last few days and weeks, it has become clear that for our community, the term distance learning applies to physical distance only. Socially and emotionally, we are more connected to each other than ever before. Teachers and parents are working together more closely. Parents are working more closely with their children, and are gaining a deeper understanding of how their children learn. We're all in this together. Distance brings us closer."
