Acceleration of Education Technology
According to monitoring conducted by representatives of the Indonesian Ombudsman in Jakarta, the education office had anticipated the traffic and informed the Internet service provider about the matter.
The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the transformation of technology, including in the field of education. However, its success relies much on the readiness of the supporting facilities.
The success of the technological transformation is also determined by its actors. Technical obstacles have hampered the online enrollment for new students (PPDB), which is under way in Jakarta. On the first and second day of registration, the system was not able to anticipate the surge in registration due to heavy traffic. This year, as many as 300,000 students are estimated to register through online enrollment.
