With one of the largest youth populations in the world, India is ready to reap the benefits of demographic dividend. But for that the nation has to equip its students with better education. Unless ICT tools are utilised to deliver the educational content, we cannot aspire to reach out to all youth spread across regions and sections of population of varied degrees of development. Fortunately there is an emphasis on the part of the governments for developing ICT tools and making the same available for educational purposes. If the mass implementation of these tools attains a professional standard, Indian can become the most important knowledge hub in the world.
Implementation at Hyderabad School of Business
At GITAM University in general, and at Hyderabad Business School in particular, the website performs multiple roles. It is a gateway for the students, researchers and the teaching faculty for getting access not only to administrative information and material, but also to journals and books across the world-wide web. Our website provides access to online national and international journals, magazines, reports and projects. It subscribes to a large number of journals through Springer link (Business & Economics Journals) EBSCO, Capitaline (Capital Market), Emerald Management Xtra 150, Proquest, Free Access Journals, Ebrary (10,70,000+ Titles). Digital Engineering and Video Libraries are also accessible to students. The teaching faculty makes their teaching-learning material available on the website. All these resources make it convenient and pleasurable to learn for an aspiring student.
Success of National Knowledge Network
National Knowledge Network simply multiplies our chances of attaining excellence, especially in the field of education. The active sharing of knowledge at various stages of its creation will facilitate quality output and helps us avoid duplication, plagiarism and substandard work. The cumulative effort of scholars across the country will lead to overall improvement in the quality of our scholarship.
