The COVID-19 global pandemic and subsequent lockdown left students across India unable to attend school in person. The Directorate of Education of National Capital Territory (NCT) Delhi needed a fast-scaling solution to not only ensure educational continuity but to also serve as a platform for long-term educational transformation. It engaged Intel’s partner, Career Launcher, and soon a partnership was formed with Intel and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Together, they worked with educators to adapt aspiration.ai, Career Launcher’s AWS-based learning portal, to address the needs of Delhi’s schools. Within two weeks the trial was successfully launched, and Project Aspiration 2020 was born. Within two months it was scaled to serve over 160,000 students with powerful learning tools and the potential to accommodate many more.
