It is designed to make remote learning an interactive experience, offering students quizzes and games, with each lesson accompanied by videos.
Schooling has sometimes been interrupted over the decades by armed conflict, and -- over the past year -- lockdowns prompted by the coronavirus pandemic.
The new "platform... is crucial for the continuation of learning in times of crisis, including the ongoing Covid-19 crisis and associated school closures," said Moritz Bilagher, the agency's acting director of education.
"This system prioritises giving students a comprehensive, consistent educational experience during this turbulent period," he added.
"Given the realities of providing education in one of the most volatile regions of the world, it will become a regularly maintained and monitored part of our educational" programme.
