The education industry is another sector that has hit adversely in the current global scenario. But the sector has bounced back, thanks to the digital era. The current situation has led to the closing down of schools, universities, coaching institutes and other educational institutes following the spread of the Covid-19. This has further affected the students and aspirants preparing for their future. But as the educationists believe that learning should not stop, hence physical education has moved to the virtual world.
Speaking on the issue during a webinar with Elets Technomedia and Digitallearning magazine, Mr Navin Mittal, Commissioner of Technical Education, Telangana said, “ In the last few years, we are working towards adopting the digital technologies and market reform-oriented process in our education system. We have adopted many technologies in both higher education and administration. All our colleges are on e-offices. All the colleges dealing with higher education and technical education have adopted digitization in November 2018.”
“We are also developing online teaching for students in the state. We are starting 5 new online courses in the next academic year,” Mr Mittal also said.
“We are trying to develop many e-learning resources for faculty members and students which are available in the market. We have also asked our faculty members to use digital libraries. Many of them are trying new things in online teaching during the lockdown. We have also asked our faculty members to use online teaching platform for students. We are using the technology for employment for our students also” said Mr Mittal.
