With many school buildings likely to remain closed throughout the rest of the academic year in the wake of the coronavirus, educators are turning to distance learning. Google has unveiled a variety of resources to assist in this effort.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai says: “For educators around the globe, we’ve created new distance learning resources, including a collection of training materials, a new YouTube Learning Hub, and a series of blog posts and webinars. We’re working with Google Educator Groups around the world, for example in Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan, to provide local content from teachers for teachers. In Italy, we’re helping schools quickly get set up with G Suite for Education and are working to provide additional technical support through partners. We’ll continue working with educators to see what more we can do to help as they navigate the transition to distance learning.”
