Online learning for students

 On Wednesday's Backchat, online learning for students.
The government said on Monday the new academic year will begin as scheduled over the coming weeks, but pupils will not be allowed back at school as part of social-distancing measures amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
The Education Secretary, Kevin Yeung, said all classes and extracurricular activities will be conducted online or through distance learning.
How effective is this measure? Is it practical? What about families who can't afford smart devices and computers? Is there advice for teachers, pupils and parents to get the most from remote education?

8:30-9:30 online learning for students.
