As the world battles coronavirus outbreak, the Education sector has seen a huge change just as other sectors of the economy will see in the near future. Students across the country are being tutored via e-learning with daily classes and online programmes.
The COVID-19 may bring in a paradigm shift in the way professional courses are taught. The adoption of the digital platform to impart teaching will gain significant traction. A study on enrolments in the universities which offer both distance and regular modes of education indicates that distance enrolments proportioned about 53 percent to the total enrolments in FY19. Undergraduate, post graduate and certificate courses are in demand for the distance mode by students in remote areas.
Virtual masterclasses and interactive sessions, free access to global courses, career mentoring, counselling support are some of the options premier education institutions offer to boost the skills of the current and prospective students.
