The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives and our economy not only in Cambodia but nearly everywhere around the globe. All public and private schools were announced to temporarily close in order to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Due to school closure, students and teachers have to be distant and classes were shifted from face-to-face to online. Everyone found it hard sometimes for this swift change. Despite challenges, they were able to cope up with it. Therefore, we need to always keep ourselves updated with technology and find more useful apps for online classes.

Here are the 5 great mobile apps for online students.


ClassDojo. ClassDojo is a school communication platform that teachers, students, and families use every day to build close-knit communities by sharing what’s being learned in the classroom home through photos, videos, and messages.
