The COVID-19 pandemic has caused changes in the school learning system. Face-to-face learning has shifted to distance learning using multimedia approaches. Online learning has created particular challenges for physical education (PE) teachers. Previously, they had to be role models in teaching physical activity. A national virtual workshop was organized to support these teachers in their transition to distance learning. The aim of the workshop was to provide physical education instruction through social media and to develop e-learning modules. The 3 days of activities consisted of 4 lectures and 6 workshops given to 177 PE teachers from 32 provinces of Indonesia. Participants were briefed on the COVID-19 pandemic, its impact on children, and healthy living during the pandemic. They were also presented with free, easy to use, highly rated and widely downloaded online applications. These multimedia applications could help teachers to develop and deliver distance learning modules to their students. The workshop helped teachers adapt to interactive distance learning. The workshop also successfully illustrates an innovative distance learning module delivered through multimedia.
