A case study that recapitulates how IITD via WizIQ conceptualised a revolutionary programme

IIT Delhi’s Department of Management Studies (DMS) wanted to innovate a certificate programme in management for working professionals, overcoming the challenges of diverse physical locations, without compromising on quality.

Challenge
IIT’s Certificate Course in Business Management (CCBM) had to cater to the needs of students from different geographical locations. It involved complex ideas to be conveyed and discussed, with constant student-teacher interaction, synchronous and asynchronous. At the same time it had to be, easy to use; adapting to different bandwidths, browsers and operating systems.

Solution
Considering the pros & cons of different models, WizIQ devised a definitive solution that revolutionised tier-one online programmes. A hybrid programme was thus conceptualised, utilising both, short phases of 5-days of face-to-face sessions that helped the students and teachers to develop a learning community; and virtual classroom sessions where this community was sustained, adding to the learning experience. WizIQ’s virtual classroom answered in the form of cutting-edge technology that used multi-way voice/video streaming, an interactive whiteboard and much more to make this experience dynamic and enable active and constant communication. The program started with orientation and product training for all the participants, backed with 24×7 support to ensure continuous and smooth running.

Results
IIT Delhi received an Educational Excellence award from Dr Pallam Raju, Minister of HRD of India, for the Best Use of Technology for Vocational Education and Skills Training by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India. This award was granted to IIT Delhi for the manner in which they incorporated WizIQ into their educational program. The feedback from professors, students and administrators was a testimony to how the programme was groundbreaking. Ideating an online platform that enabled and simplified exchange of ideas had now been made possible with WizIQ Virtual Classroom.
