Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation Education has recognised and highlighted Nagaland’s initiative of ‘Tele/Online education programme’ during Covid-19 pandemic terming it as “affordable and effective remote learning.” 

In its report, “Learning from international education responses to the crises”, OEDCE said that Nagaland was quick to react to school closures, creating lessons to broadcast on radio and television, as well as on the internet, crowd sourcing the content from local teachers and educators.

It also encouraged community participation and helped ensure the response was cost–effective and right for local context.

According to OECDE and  Skills Today, information from around the world on education responses  to the crises were gathered combining the expertise of Harvard Global education Innovation initiative, OECD directorate for Education and skills and the World Bank Group Education Global Practice. 

School Education principal director Shanavas C said: “Such article from international organisation is motivating and inspires us to do more”.

He said the department was conducting a survey from all the schools asking them the numbers of how many students are able to use the digital education and how many are not able to do it. “Once we have the data wherever we are lacking we’ll find some alternative solutions for them., Shanavas said, adding the, ultimate aim was to cover each and every child in Nagaland.
