PHNOM PENH—Some high-school students in Siem Reap City will be able to attend classes through eLearning while schools are temporarily closed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport announced Friday that free courses for grade-9 and grade-12 students are now offered online. Students can access the courses at any time as they wish, the ministry said.

This program was initiated due to school closure in Siem Reap City. A total of 110 teaching institutions—from primary school to university level—are temporarily closed following the announcement on March 7 that a Cambodian patient had tested positive for the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and that several others were in self-quarantine in Siem Reap City.

Launched Friday, the eLearning program consists of six specialized courses: mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, history and literature. Students can access the classes through social media and the ministry’s Facebook page. This will help grade 9 and grade 12 students prepare for the national exams they will face later this year. 

Students can access the courses on YouTube ( or Facebook (, the ministry said.
