The Video Quality Monitoring System is launched by ASAP with an objective to monitor the quality of the courses in Foundation Module and Skill Module. The mechanism ensures that the trainers are maintaining the desired quality in their delivery of content and that the students are being facilitated to participate in the class activities as required.
