Google's free tools and advice that can help you work and learn smarter from home during the coronavirus pandemic




The Covid-19 pandemic has seen many office workers and now students and teachers across the region suddenly having to leave their building and adapt to working from home.

Many, if not all, will have experienced challenges in making that work smoothly and enabling them to be as efficient as in their normal working or learning environment, which can lead to longer days playing catch-up.

Working with video calls, keeping on top of stress, brainstorming online and sharing and using lesson plans are just some of the things people are now trying to get their heads around.
