The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted education globally, and students in Kashmir were no exception. There was no source of learning for students in Kashmir for whom we had set up an iPrep Digital Library with tablets and iPrep Digital Class in schools. Because immediately after implementation, a lockdown happened, schools closed, and the principal and teachers were worried about how they would ensure continuity in learning.
This was when they reached out to us with the concern, and we, with the network of teachers, shared access to iPrep, a one-stop learning platform, with all students through Whatsapp groups of teachers with parents. Students happily downloaded the iPrep ad and continued learning from home. The teachers could also monitor their progress and provide guidance when needed, leading to an uninterrupted learning experience.

The impact of iPrep on the education of students in Kashmir was significant. The continuity in learning during the COVID-19 pandemic helped students stay on track with their education. When students returned to school after 2 years of lockdown, they were able to continue learning at the same pace with the help of tablets in iPrep Digital Library implemented in their schools before the lockdown.
iPrep has had a significant impact on student learning and engagement during the pandemic. The availability of digital content aligned with the J&K Board in the student’s preferred language facilitated seamless remote learning. Furthermore, the inclusion of content for junior classes motivated students to switch to the content of any class and cover their historical learning gaps. On the other hand, the availability of growth-based and life-skill content encouraged students to work on their creativity, where they learned and created projects ranging from origami to natural fiber models. Overall, the non-judgmental learning environment created by the iPrep increased engagement and learning outcomes for students in Kashmir.
