As India marked the completion of 75 years of Independence earlier this month, PM Narendra Modi, in his speech, emphasised the importance of the National Education Policy and how it will be the carrier for empowering students to make them ready for 21st-century skills. The nation is thriving on new energy and newfangled objectives to transform India into a developed country in the next 25 years. And when it comes to transfiguring, the most prominent sector to focus on is ‘Education’. A myriad of developments are ongoing in the sector, and India has also pledged to make the education sector paramount from the Red Fort’s rampart on Independence Day.

The most significant application of “Digital India’’ is evident in the education spectrum. UGC has been constantly pushing to make the most of the wide spectrum the mission has opened up. It recently launched an e-resource portal to avail digital course content for undergraduate and postgraduate students in rural India.

To commemorate India’s 75 years of independence and highlight the nation’s progress as well as accomplishments, we present to you the August issue of Digital Learning magazine that will pivot on the nano learning and forth comings of e-learning in the cover story, as e-learning is the matter of contention in the education vista. We also focus on the merger of JEE-NEET with an elucidating explanation of its opportunities, snags, and a special industry perspective from IIT alumni on the historical proposal.

The issue also has an extensive and illuminating report from the 24th World Education Summit that was held on 27-28 July 2022, in Hyderabad. It is highlighting the commendable innovations in education, in both higher and school education segments. The report will also present a kernel of visionary thoughts from government dignitaries, industry stakeholders, and educators who attended the summit as key speakers.

Happy Reading!
