    Already 130 Lithuanian schools have started using Sanako Connect online services to move their language classes online. Read how Lithuanian schools react to Coronavirus outbreak!


    Sanako Connect will transfer an existing language studio as such into an online environment, without the need to change the curriculum. Teachers have found that this software originally designed for language teaching works well for other teaching purposes as well.

    Lithuania is a pioneer in this, and now 130 schools have begun teaching with Sanako Connect. A large number of schools in addition to these forerunners will soon introduce the tool.

    “We are now urgently looking for tools to provide distance education. Due to Corona virus, In two weeks at the latest, all teaching will move online. It is important to us that there is no need to install any applications and it is easy to set up the virtual classroom. The application is good when sharing materials and assignments and giving feedback is in the same tool as the audio functions.”

    Sanako CEO Juho Isola says: “I am very pleased that we can help teachers in a difficult situation, and, I admire the teachers’ inventiveness that our language teaching tool is used in all teaching.”

    Pekka Sivonen, the Executive Director of Digital Transformation from Business Finland says: “This is a great example of how fastly an innovative and open-minded community can react to sudden changes. Lithuanian teachers are leaders in adapting to the situation at hand by using Finnish education technology.

    Due to the widespread closure of schools due to Coronavirus outbreak in early 2020, Sanako decided to provide its online language lab software - Sanako Connect - for free for schools during the spring semester 2020 in all countries where distance education can be implemented.


    Sanako Connect is an online language lab software. You can find more information about the solution here.
