JAKARTA – Indonesian housewife Delores Mia Monorica, 43, began to use a one-year animation learning package by education technology (edtech) start-up Ruangguru in July to help her eldest daughter, Ibrenna Mirkaela Simanjuntak, study at home.

Earlier the same month, eight-year-old Mirkaela quit formal education before she was to start her third year in primary school to be home-schooled, as her parents want her to focus on character building and study according to her talents and interest.
