To help teachers and families Google and YouTube have started new resource pages. Due to coronavirus, they continue to educate students while they’re home from school. By using Google products teachers can teach remotely. In recent weeks across the globe schools and universities have closed. In English teach from home is available. Downloadable toolkits are available in German, Danish, French, Spanish, Italian, and Polish, and more languages are “coming soon.”

At home, students can watch YouTube’s Learn@Home highlights the education YouTube channel.
YouTube is working with Khan College and other education-focused creators. As part of a $50 million donation, Google will launch a $10 million Distance Learning Fund. At an unprecedented scale, educators face the challenge of teaching remotely. Teach From Home is a central hub of tips, information, tools, and training from across Google. Also, we are providing an overview of how to get started with distance
learning.

The resource will continue to evolve. With the support and cooperation of UNESCO, we built the hub.
We’ll continue to build and improve this. The Google.org Distance Learning Fund’s first grant will be $1
million to help Khan Academy. Google volunteers are planning to help Khan Academy provide educators. Alberta government announced that all schools in the province would be closing.
