KITE (Kerala Infrastructure and Technology for Education) has rolled out G-Suite platform, provided free of cost by Google India, ensuring login facility for 47 lakh students and 1.7 lakh teachers as part of online learning programme in the state.
“Since login facility has been created for teachers and students in the general domain, external individuals would not be able to get into the classes.

Google Meet for Video Conferencing, Classroom Learning Management System, Assignments, Quiz, Facility for evaluation, Drive for creation and storing of Data etc are available in G-Suite, he said.

In the event of students forgetting their passwords, the same can be reset in the School Admin level login in the platform, who would also have the privilege to classify different classes and groups.
There is facility to record the classes Live and its link can be shared with the students who might have missed the classes.
