Indonesian edtech startup Zenius Education on Monday announced that it will provide free lessons on Gojek’s super-app, as Indonesian schools suspend classes and students are learning from home amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Since the start of this pandemic in Indonesia, Zenius Education has not stopped exploring various innovations to give students the easiest access to independent study at home,” said Zenius CEO Rohan Monga in a statement. He hopes to reach millions of Gojek users, especially students, including the children of the driver-partners and merchants.

Prior to joining Zenius, Monga was a senior executive at Gojek. He replaced the company’s co-founder Sabda PS earlier this February.

Through this collaboration, users can access Zenius’ services on Gojek’s app, including live teaching and study planning features, according to the announcement. Zenius also claims to offer more than 80,000 learning videos and practice questions for elementary- to high-school students.

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed many startups to cooperate and join the fight against the disease together. Earlier, Gojek teamed up with health tech startup Halodoc to roll out an online screening service for users with COVID-19 symptoms.
