North Korea underlines importance of increasing the quality of “remote lectures”

Rodong Sinmun also reports on how other countries are mandating remote learning to prevent the spread of COVID-19

North Korean state media on Tuesday emphasized increasing the quality of "remote lectures," listing the ways in how such virtual courses can create an effective educational environment.

Although this Rodong Sinmun article did not mention quarantine measures against COVID-19 in relation to remote courses, the newspaper in recent days introduced to domestic readers the measures taken by other countries to make universities hold virtual courses in order to minimize person-to-person contact amid the global spread of the virus.
