In the last couple of years, we are witnessing a profound change in the way we learn where eLearning is playing the role of enabler. The governments, companies and start-ups are collectively changing the landscape of learning and development in India. In this backdrop, the Union Government is bringing Digital India into practice by engaging various leading institutions under the ambit of the SWAYAM. As an eLearning initiative of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, SWAYAM is strengthening the eLearning ecosystem in India.
SWAYAM is an indigenously developed platform for online courses which focuses on learners from School (9th to 12th) to Post Graduate Level. In this backdrop, Quality Council of India (QCI) partnered with SWAYAM to provide skill-based courses at the national level. Consistent with this goal, eQuest’s eLearning course “Manufacturing Competitiveness” is now live on the SWAYAM’s Platform. Under the auspice of the collaboration, QCI is a Principal Investigator (PI) and working with IIM Bangalore which is a national coordinator for the MHRD initiative. IIM Bangalore reviewed and approved our eLearning course “Manufacturing Competitiveness”. As our course is running successfully at the SWAYAM platform, we are getting overwhelming responses from the learners.

QCI conceived and started its eLearning platform- eQuest to become a catalyst in enhancing employability and bridging the capacity gap in India. Equipped with the blended learning model, eQuest’s learning system lets the learners know how much they learned and where they are in the course. It enables employers and organizations to track the course completion status. It plays an important role in evaluating the learning. eQuest Courses meet the requirements and the needs of the learners which include learning objectives, delivery methods, assessment, and interaction. eQuest is running a wide range of courses in categories like Quality, Healthcare, Laboratories, Environment, and Agriculture & Food Safety.
In India, eLearning space is witnessing an impressive growth. The next five years are expected to present immense growth opportunities for all categories in the online education space as the study elsewhere stated. Under the guidance of our Secretary General, QCI inked several MoUs with leading institutions to enhance employability and capacity building while using the eQuest platform. Under the aegis of the institutional cooperation, we are working with institutions to prepare eLearning courses on our core areas. Our Quality Management course is running successfully in various leading institutions as Credit Programmes and many institutions are willing to introduce such courses in their curriculum. As the Government of India has approved UGC (Online Courses) Regulations, 2018, eQuest is well-equipped to garner such opportunities in the eLearning and we are going to collaborate with institutions like IITs, NIITs and the Sector Skill Councils to reach a wider audience.
