The global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus closed schools worldwide and forced educators to discover distance learning solutions to keep up with the school curriculums. In March, a Finnish innovation consulting company Spinverse sponsored Koulu.me website to showcase Finnish edtech companies that offer free access to their solutions for the duration of the crisis. The campaign has been warmly welcomed by the participating companies, educators and educational organisations around the globe.
To support teachers in their important educational work during the coronavirus pandemic, Spinverse launched Koulu.me portal, which showcases close to thirty Finnish edtech companies. These companies currently offer their apps free of charge to schools and other educational institutions worldwide. The campaign has been warmly welcomed by teachers who are currently struggling with many challenges in these exceptional times.
