LinkAja, an application-based electronic money service provider and part of the SOE ecosystem, is again expanding and strengthening the digitization system, especially in the education sector. Along with the G20 Summit, LinkAja is collaborating with the Eduku Platform as a Learning Management System (LMS) service provider to help school management digitize effective and efficient teaching and learning processes and provide digital solutions for educators, students and parents through school management facilities such as data storage, digital administration systems, to online registration features.
The collaboration, which was formalized through the signing of this MoU, further enhances Eduku's role through LinkAja Berbagi Ilmu (LBI), which has been running since 2020. LBI is a form of LinkAja's commitment to the financial literacy program that has been routinely carried out by LinkAja. In addition, this collaboration is a form of support for programs initiated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemendikbudristek).
Rendi Nugraha, Marketing Director of LinkAja, stated, "LinkAja understands the importance of equitable and comprehensive digitization in all sectors, including the education sector in Indonesia. For this reason, as a form of our support to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology in increasing digitization in the education sector, LinkAja synergizes with the Eduku platform. Additionally, LinkAja and Eduku introduced a digital education administration system and a digital school needs payment system. LinkAja will further participate in conducting business socialization and digital literacy education when Eduku visits schools selected for the spreading of information. Of course, this is also our realization as a digital financial transaction service provider to unite Indonesia's potential towards inclusive financial digitalization."
Adi Halim, President Director of Eduku, added, "We are very enthusiastic about this collaboration. Eduku has collaborated with several trusted parties in developing innovations and making school education management systems practical. This time, together with LinkAja, we are sure that the dissemination of information related to digital literacy will develop faster and on target in the future."
Eduku has the opportunity to collaborate in digitizing schools under the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology and the Bali Provincial Education Office, together with LinkAja. Eduku will focus on creating more practical changes in school activities that will directly benefit school management, teachers, students, and the education office. This collaboration is in line with LinkAja's commitment to accelerate the digitalization process in terms of digital payments.
On the same occasion, Prof. Dr. Nunuk Suryani, M.Pd, Plt. Director General and Teachers and Education Personnel of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology said, "We welcome all forms of support that can accelerate the achievement of the government's mission, especially in improving educational technology, including school management systems. We are responsible for formulating and implementing policies in the field of teacher development and education personnel. Through this collaboration between LinkAja and Eduku, we hope to facilitate all these needs in the future, starting from the preparation of norms, standards, procedures, and criteria in the field of teacher development and other education personnel."
LinkAja has built cooperation with various partners in the field of education through synergies with more than 600 schools spread across 18 provinces throughout Indonesia. These synergies include the digitization of more than 60 Higher Education Partners, including Gadjah Mada University (UGM) and Solo State University (UNS), as well as to more than 50 online partners including Ruang Guru, Zenius, Pijar Mahir, Rakamin, Sekolahmu, Eduku, Udemy, BinarAcademy, and others.
To date, LinkAja has been used by more than 87 million users across Indonesia. LinkAja continues to explore the country's potential and educate the public while facilitating access to digital financial services to bring meaningful benefits to the Indonesian people.
Through a complete and integrated ecosystem of electronic financial transaction services, LinkAja's consistency and commitment in its efforts to #UniteIndonesia's Potential is increasingly being recognized. By optimizing all the services offered by each SOE that is its shareholder, LinkAja is optimistic that it can meet the needs of safe and convenient digital transactions and further accelerate the process of equitable financial inclusion in Indonesia.
