From March 23rd to April 3rd, ‘EBS 2-Week LiveSchooling Courses’ will be provided for two weeks following the timetables ofschools on the EBS elementary, middle and high school sites in order to keep upschool progress for the new semester.
The existing Special High School Live Lecture targetedhigh school students, drawing attention from the public, and so EBS hasexpanded this new Special Live Lecture to all grades of students in elementary,middle and high school, as well as organized an unprecedented combination ofsimultaneous live streaming on the Internet using ten studios.
In terms of production scale, 150 crew members willspecially produce 472 classes in ten studios and broadcast them in real time.To this end, EBS also introduced other devices for internet live streaming. EBSplans to mobilize company-wide capabilities such as disinfection and diseasesurveillance during the broadcast period by organizing a special team dedicatedto COVID-19 in order to prevent daily live broadcasting from needing to pause.
‘EBS 2-Week Live Schooling Courses’ is anunprecedented and organized system not only in Korea but also amongst foreignbroadcasters. In order to overcome the temporary paralysis of school functionsaround the world, EBS decided to fulfill its role as a designated “NationalDisaster Education Broadcasting Company” in close cooperation with the Ministryof Education and the Korea Communications Commission.
On the other hand, EBS textbooks that are used aslecture materials for two weeks can be downloaded free of charge from each EBSelementary, middle, and high school site.
