Under the threat of COVID-19, India has made immense technological advancements in the space of e-learning as Indian institutions never imagined the need to go 100% online prior. The administration of many institutions was hit hard when they were faced with immediate closure and the need to transform hundreds of their brick and mortar classrooms, to online virtual ones. Institutions have immediately made plans to continue teaching through innovative methods online.

Hence, QS IGAUGE created a global best practices document and methodology, to evaluate the preparedness of institutions in India in adopting technology and technology-enabled services for online teaching. This is our attempt to support institutions to cater to the changing needs amidst the COVID-19 crisis and to be future-ready.

The methodology, data collection & validation, audit process, quality check, and delivery mechanism have been thoroughly reviewed by experts from the higher education domain. It is coined as E-LEAD: E-Learning Excellence for Academic Digitisation.

On 14th May 2020, QS IGAUGE will announce the first batch of institutions that have successfully completed this audit and present them with a certificate and a scorecard. This can be showcased to current and future students proudly that the institution is ready to continue offering programs online during and post COVID-19.
