Findings reveal that assessing the financial capabilities, educational technology capabilities, and government assistance can help these institutions to survive in the ongoing crisis. Adapting a business model tool: customer dimension and the need for protection; value dimension and the need for stability; value demonstration and the need for stimulus; and capability dimension and the need for preparation in consideration with the use of adaptive systems theory and crisis management approach.

Keywords: Educational institutions, learning institutions, COVID-19, educational technology, government assistance, crisis, adaptive systems
