In 2011, WizIQ was awarded the World Education Public Choice Award in the ‘Best Innovation in Open and Distance Learning’ category at the World Education Awards. In 2012 and 2013 WizIQ was honoured with the Global e-Learning Award for the ‘Best Virtual Classroom Provider’ category by the World Education Congress.
And on the 8th of August, 2014, we did it AGAIN!!
At the World Education Summit organized in the Hotel Eros Hilton, New Delhi, The World Education Awards gave us a reason to celebrate once more! For the third time in a row, we’ve brought this award home, certifying the fact that more than 290,000 teachers and 3.7 million students who are registered with WizIQ are a part of something huge, the chance to revolutionize education all around the world!
About the award
This award was given to felicitate the impact that the WizIQ Virtual Classroom has had on online education, bringing users from around the world together with improved audio-video streaming, helping educators create in-depth and high-impact sessions with all the tools and features brought to them by the WizIQ Virtual Classroom using web browsers, as well as the WizIQ Mobile Learning App. It’s easy integration into existing Learning Management Systems like Moodle, Blackboard, Instructure Canvas, Sakai, Joomla or with existing teacher websites via the WizIQ APIs also made it stand tall among competitors.
Mr. Ramen Deka, esteemed Member of Parliament from Assam, Dr. Shabistan Ghaffer, Chairperson of the Committee on Girls’ Education, National Commission for Minority Education Institutions and Mr. MP Narayan, the President of the eLets group presented WizIQ with the award so we’d also like to give them a very special thank you too!
The Event Coordinator for WES, Mr. Amit Kumar Pundhir had this to say, “We congratulate WizIQ on winning this award. Over 200 participants both nationally and internationally, were nominated for these awards under different categories. WizIQ is the proud winner for ‘Best Virtual Classroom Provider’ award, and has been honoured for truly reflecting the change that technology can bring to education. WizIQ is commendable for using technology to replicate the physical classroom online and providing tools to empower teachers to teach online.” Truth be told Mr. Pundhir, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
His kind words are an apt description of what WizIQ stands for, developing technology so that the right to quality education is no longer beyond anyone’s reach, no matter where they may live or work.
This prestigious award is a testament to the combined efforts of the entire team at WizIQ, our network of students, educators and many education organizations around the world as well. WizIQ’s state-of-the-art Virtual Classroom is specifically designed for education, providing users with all the features and tools they would need to simulate the face-to-face classroom experience online with features like:

We are extremely thankful to the WES, all the other attendees of the event and all the educators and learners working with WizIQ for this prestigious award. Rest assured that this is not a reason for us to rest on our laurels because the truth be told, we’ve only just begun!!!
