The challenges of the digitalisation of learning systems
Vice President of Innovation and Technologies Hypernet Technologies Oktaviani Handojo said there are three major challenges facing efforts to digitalize the learning system in Indonesia. The first challenge is limiting or limiting access to the Internet.
Oktaviani said several schools he visited have asked questions about how to share the Internet within the school setting so the connection is stable. “Because on average they will be overwhelmed,” he said.
So, the second big challenge in digitalizing the learning system is finding a teaching and learning system that is effective and suitable for the school. The final challenge is the support system in the school, considering that not all schools have support technologies and information facilities.
“That’s why when it comes to digitalization, who can manage it when the school itself may not be supported technologically?” said Ottaviani.
