Jakarta, 23 March 2020 --- The government's encouragement to learn from home has spurred the largest and leading provider of online learning applications in Southeast Asia, Ruangguru, to give appreciation to students who really study in their homes. Ruangguru cooperates with PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk or BNI to provide Taplus Muda Savings as a gift for 200 students who are actively honing their knowledge online in the application.
This is a manifestation of Ruangguru's and BNI's efforts in responding to the learning challenge faced by students in Indonesia in the midst of the health crisis of COVID-19. The interesting learning along with opportunities to get prizes are also expected to keep students able to learn with enthusiasm without getting bored quickly at home, thus supporting the government's suggestion to maximize the Social Distancing program to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
BNI prepares Taplus Muda savings for 200 selected students who actively participate in the Ruangguru Free Online School program. Each student will get saving of Rp1,000,000.
"This collaboration program is expected to trigger the enthusiasm of students to continue learning in achieving achievements and ideals," said the General Manager of Management Products Division of BNI, Donny Bima in Jakarta, Monday (23 March 2020).
“Millions of students all over Indonesia have have been studying at Ruangguru Free Online School since we first launched it. We are proud that they are enthusiastic about learning in our application, and we hope that, with our collaboration with BNI, more and more students are motivated to study harder," added the Product Director and Partnership of Ruangguru, Iman Usman.
