The Era of Digitalization – Revolutionizing Higher Education In India

By Jay Khan on 22 June 2018

From the way the students are getting evaluated to the transformation of the traditional classrooms into digitized ones, technology is surely permeating every facet of learning. The introduction of cutting-edge technologies in the education sector is pushing the space towards digital disruption, catching eyes of many entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. Today, every new technology is at our fingertips and the inclusion of the same in the education space inevitably ensures the provision of quality learning to the students. You might not think deep around this, but even children are watching their favorite cartoons and learning languages on the same device. That’s the bliss of digitalization in the education sector.

I believe that one of the biggest advancements the disruption in education sector aims at is exploring ways to make the learning more personalized and readily accessible. Institutions are on the road to assuring that the focus is on students’ needs and the eradication of 'one size fits all' learning system, eventually transforming old learning methodologies to personalized learning pedagogies. This will further help students to be technologically savvy and stay geared up for modern workplaces.

Attributing to some of the best colleges and universities around the world, India’s education sector is known for its excellence. Relying on traditional learning methodologies and yet incorporating latest technologies, the Indian education sector dominantly points toward a global progress. To support this vision and mission of Digital India, I-MADE Unifyed Digital Campus joined hands with Department of Telecommunications, Government of India to help institutions and universities go mobile at ‘Zero Cost’. With more than 35,000 institutions, 20 million students and over a million apps, I-MADE Unifyed Digital Campus is not just empowering these institutions but is also helping students turn ideas into revenue generating companies.
