OPAL / Digital education application for the elderly


OPAL is an digital education platform, school and community for the elderly. OPAL is an abbreviation for “Old People with Active Lives” that the app aims for. OPAL helps the elderly to communicate and not be isolated in the touchless society that has arrived as Covid-19.
It allows anyone, regardless of their area of residence, to take digital education classes conducted live or recorded at various local welfare centers at anytime, anywhere. Thus, OPAL contributes to reducing not only the digital divide by generation but also the digital literacy gap by region.
