Saudi Arabia students in classroom

The Ministry of Education has ended the preparation of teaching lessons in writing, paving the way for full digitization for the first time after abandoning the traditional system that was in vogue in Saudi Arabia since several decades.

There will no longer be preparation of any paper-based learning tools for students attending online classes.

The paperless learning system will be implemented through the remote learning platform Madrasati (my school) effective from the new academic year, which began on Sunday.
