The director of education for the Erongo region, Enfriende Stephanus says the region's rural schools are the most affected by a lack of access to online education. Stephanus says the region has 78 schools (private and public) of which 20% are in the rural areas. Material are shared via social media, while hard copies are sent to remote areas and parents who don't have access to transport.
Radio, television, social media as well as print media are used in the Khomas region to reach learners. According to the director of education for the region, Gerard Vries parents and guardians are the key to the success of whether information reaches learners. Vries admits not all schools are equal in relation to equity of access to education materials and internet. According to him efforts are increased to ensure every learner is part of and participating in the new form of learning.
