Schools across the country will be inspected to determine how well they are delivering e-learning classes.
Inspectors will be able to jump into virtual classes to observe teachers and pupils, while principals will be interviewed online.
The Ministry of Education and Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah’s education regulators will assess public and private schools from mid-May.
Each school will be subject to virtual inspections lasting about five hours.
News of the checks came in a post on the website of Dubai private school regulator the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).
“It will include online meetings with the principal and senior leadership team, as well as remote observation of lessons. Schools will be given prior notice of an evaluation,” KHDA said.
