Lark, the Engine Behind Indonesia’s Universitas Sulawesi Tenggara’s Remote Learning Initiative
For South Sulawesi-based Universitas Sulawesi Tenggara, Lark’s powerful all-in-one remote learning platform allows over 3000 students to stay connected with their teachers, anytime, anywhere.
Prof. Dr. Ir. Andi Bahrun
"Lark has given our students and teachers the ability to keep the classroom functioning during lockdown. We especially like how much value we get from Lark with unlimited video conferencing minutes, unlike Zoom. Our students have really enjoyed learning on Lark and we feel that it will benefit any school looking to make the most of remote learning. "
UNSULTRA is one of the most popular universities in Indonesia. It was founded in 1986. It is a private higher learning institution that delivers higher educational programs, and is owned by Yayasan Pendidikan Tinggi Sulawesi Tenggara. It runs 6 faculties managing 7 study programs: Civil Engineering, Agricultural Product Technology, Law Science, the Study of Government, Management, PGSD (Primary School Teacher Education), and PG-PAUD (Early Childhood Teacher Education).
As the pandemic started to gain steam across the Indonesian Archipelago, UNSULTRA tried a variety of different platforms including Zoom and Google Classroom but found these solutions lacking due to either exorbitant fees, a need to reconnect to video calls or an interface not best suited for classes with dozens of students across the 6 faculties of the University.
These shortcomings aside the team also wanted a solution that could integrate seamlessly with existing LMS tools without adding to a software stack that was going to take a greater deal of manpower to manage.
The Lark Advantage
With Lark, UNSULTRA had an integrated collaboration and communications platform that contained all the functions needed for effective distance learning.
Lark’s powerful video conferencing feature allowed teachers and students to connect and with no limits on time and a smart VC interface that allows for multiple participants to be on screen at the same time
Managing documents became a breeze with Lark Docs allowing students to collaborate on assignments without the hassle of uploading documents to the cloud.
With Lark’s open platform design, UNSULTRA’s existing LMS applications could be easily integrated into Lark, allowing faculty and staff to continue using the apps they love.
Lark has become the primary tool for online lessons.
Increased staff and student happiness with a restoration of learning interactivity
Enabled effective remote learning during COVID-19
UNSULTRA leadership is recommending Lark to other schools in the same district
