The Centre’s proposal to set up a Digital University to develop and provide access to digital education tools for the masses is a big win for the sector. The fact that the Digital University will have programmes in different Indian languages is highly encouraging. To be built on a hub and spoke model, by stitching collaborations with some of the best institutions in the country, the University looks designed to meet modern day requirements.

Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s comment that supplementary teaching resources will be built to address the needs of crores of children from vulnerable communities, who have lost two years of their education due to the pandemic, is indeed heart-warming. Under the PM e-vidya scheme, the number of educational television channels will be increased to 200 from the current 12. I hope the government will make sure that these channels provide high quality content. Also, teachers need training to handle these digital tools.
