During the Covid-19 pandemic in spring 2020, educational organizations around the world were closed from one day to the next while teaching would continue. UNESCO recommended that teaching continue, but would be online from 16 March 2020. In a time of digitalisation and information technology, an emergency like this is no excuse to stop continuous learning. Unesco launched the overarching initiative #learningneverstops and a website with resources for all those involved in communication, interaction, socialization and ethical and social issues. It is business as usual, but still not. Unesco estimates that, as of 29 April 2020, 1.3 billion students and pupils are still affected by school or university closures, despite the opening of educational organizations around the world. Today, the proportion of students reading from a distance is 90 per cent worldwide.
