The COVID-19 pandemic has placed unprecedented stress on schools and their ability to deliver their programs.

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum told the nation this week, “Our education and learning drive will never stop, no matter the circumstances.” This is truth.

Distance learning is not new to the education sector. Fully online schools have supported home-schooled students for decades, though maintaining quality of product has been a challenge for the online industry, as many providers simply replicate a passive, teacher-driven learning environment (think correspondence courses of a past era).

Distance learning has started in earnest at the International Academic School (IAS). Before it launched, significant thought and research went into developing a comprehensive contingency plan that were requested by ADEK. Those plans were submitted to ADEK on time; however, IAS Teachers spent the two weeks -prior to the start of eLearning process on 22nd. March 2020- reviewing and editing those plans to meet the requirements of the e-learning process.
