Telenor Group continues to promote e-learning and digital schooling to customers who are stuck at home, by introducing several remote learning services.
With the tremendous rise in internet usage, Telenor subscribers are given the opportunity to read e-books and take courses for both adults and children, while in quarantine.
The newest addition to their e-learning
application suite, is e-book subscription platform, Bookmate.
Bookmate hosts a database of around 1 million
e-books and audiobooks in 15 languages, which include English, Turkish, Russian
and Spanish. Telenor Montenegro is offering its user’s access to this library,
which includes over 3,000 pieces by top regional publishers, and is available
in both mobile and web.
Upon activating Bookmate, Telenor users will
also get 10GB of internet for using the service and a 30-day trial period. The
service is free for users with a postpaid package, while other users will need
to pay EUR 4.99 as a tariff supplement.
Telenor Montenegro has been on the digital
education path prior to 2014, when they released the Surf Wisely App on their
networks. The application allowed parents and children to view and educate
themselves on a variety of digital subjects. These include topics on social
network security settings, and technology related topics, while giving users
the option to ask questions. Telenor
Group announced that development has brought them one-step closer to
their goal of “wider availability of information regarding safe usage of global
In 2016, Telenor Group revealed the release of Digiworld, a
curriculum designed for ‘Helping children become safer and more confident
digital citizens.’ In partnership with UNICEF and PlanGlobal, Telenor brought
this learning tool to millions of parents and pupils in Asia, aimed at children
aged 6 -15 years old.
The program teaches children to keep their
online data safe through gamification. Schools and parents could use this
curriculum to give students a better understanding of the digital world, a way
to navigate it safely, the nuances of interacting online, helping to spot
things like cyberbullying, how to examine content and how to become more aware of
hate speech or fake news. It also
teaches people how to react when things go wrong.
This year sees Telenor Group continue down the same path. Now
seems an appropriate time for Telcos across the world to explore additional
ways that education, knowledge, and communication tools can be brought to
people in times of social isolation.
