All the constituents of Kingston Educational Institute (Kingston Polytechnic College, Kingston Science College, Kingston School of Management Science, Kingston Law College, Kingston Teacher's Training Academy, Kingston Model School, Kingtson's Skill Development Initiative) were one of the first educational institutes to embrace electronic learning. Kingston Educational Institute leveraged their pan-India and global contacts to use multi-platform based learning initiatives, including the likes of Learning Management System (LMS), YouTube Channel, Slideshare, Blogosphere, WhatsApp, Helpline and other multi-medias to provide quality education to the students, precisely following the college and school schedule, on a day to day basis. The academic rigour as well as the punctuality of the students and the teachers weren’t compromised and all the stakeholders understood the importance of work from home and college/school from home to a nicety. The classes were being conducted by the faculties through zoom, google classrooms, as well as the aforementioned tools after following the basics of instructional design as well as SCORM norms. Opines, Dr. Manishankar Chakraborty, Academic Advisor of Kingston, based in Dubai, "The effort put in by the KEI family to ensure none of the students are deprived of learning and growth during this moment of crisis speaks volumes of the commitment of the management as well as all the staff members". All the classes are being individually monitored by a crack team having hands on expertise in learning and development, so as to measure their effectiveness, from a qualitative and quantitative standpoint. Regular feedback is being sought through surveys, discussion forums from the students, their parents and peers from the academic fraternity, so as to ensure the quality is enhanced periodically. Mr. Tipam Bhattacharjee, President of KEI was forthright when we commented, KEI ensures that knowledge reaches every nook and corner of the country, in order to have the developmental curve of the pupils intact, even during this moment of crisis. This was evident from the process based approach followed by Kingston while ideating, customizing and implementing electronic learning, catering to the specific needs of their pupils. Value added initiatives by networking with industry professionals and academic experts, as well as professionals provided the students with numerous self-help developmental platforms. In order to reach out to the masses who are probably stranded at home, devoid of education, Kingston has also started free electronic tutoring, electronic mentoring and electronic counseling by their in-house experts as well as the external resources targeting all the class 10th, class11th and class 12th students of India. The students registered in https://keical.edu.in/elearning/ and sought need based educational as well as academic support at absolutely free of cost. Furthermore, the emphasis of holistic learning that has always been the key foundation at Kingston was brought to the fore when the group's secretary, Mrs. Uma Bhattacharjee provided with a competition based learning opportunity whereby, the students can develop their extra-curricular activities by registering in the link https://keical.edu.in/compete-for-excellence/.at no cost. She added that such activities are the fulcrum for the students to activate lateral thinking as well as the development of an analytical mindset. The group has also requested the governments of West Bengal, Tripura and Megalaya to provide free teaching-learning support to all the class 10th, 11th and 12th students of those respective states. The whole electronic learning experience and the sojourn thus far was aptly summed up by the Academic Chairman of Kingston Group, Prof (Dr.) Ambarnath Banerji when we said, Kingston is always for the students, who are the torchbearers of the society and Covid-19 cannot defeat us in achieving our objectives of being the facilitators of learning 24x7x365!
