Greece Allows Simultaneous Class and Online Lessons, with Caveat

ATHENS – Greece's personal data watchdog said on Tuesday that teaching in class while also allowing distant access to some students unable to attend is legal, but the lessons may not be taped and stored.

The Authority for the Protection of Personal Data was responding to objections by teachers' unions to a draft amendment by the minister of Education. It said the concurrent teaching could be used in cases of epidemics, and the use of personal data was legal within the context of this.

It also said that a future ministerial decree that will include legal details on the amendment must include an assessment of the repercussions of the dual process.



ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met on Wednesday with Arturo Aizpiri, CEO of Enagás at the Maximos Mansion.
