COVID-19 has put a halt to face-to-face classes for student learning transforming education to an online mode.

 

Despite students being able to learn without leaving their homes, they may not be immediately accessible to teachers when facing homework difficulties. With this tremendous change, some students may feel stressful with packed knowledge. To alleviate this problem, we have set up a free online learning platform to match primary and secondary students with EdUHK university students as tutors. The line up makes asking questions feasible via WhatsApp and Zoom, which in turn, hopes to foster interpersonal relationships and minimise students’ anxiety.
