Education in India is going digital: Why you need to keep up

Education in India is going digital: Why you need to keep up

Top reasons to adopt the online mode of education  

The impact of COVID 19 on the education sector has been unprecedented in every sense. The closing down of educational institutions in the wake of the virus outbreak has accelerated the rapid shift to digital-learning models across the country.

Online or digital education is already a norm in several countries across the globe with reputed universities offering full-time degrees including online MBA, online BCA, online BBA and other similar certifications.

It would not be wrong to say that India’s education system is going through a transformative phase and, as a society, we need to catch up and move forward with this global trend.

Transition to digital and why you need to keep pace

Online education is primarily conducted in two ways. The first is via recorded classes, which, when opened to students, are referred to as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The second is via live online classes conducted as Zoom sessions or webinars.

Accredited universities are leveraging online live classes as well as MOOCs, along with various education delivery platforms or learning management systems to make online education more accessible in India.

Here’s why you need to keep up with this ongoing trend of learning through robust online education courses –

Multiple options

The biggest advantage of digital or online learning is the vast number of options or courses available to students. In digital mode, students can explore literally any field that they are interested in.

There is no dearth of accredited MBA online degree programmes for those looking to enhance their career prospects. It allows college students to look beyond the traditional or obvious academic options and expand their horizons.

Anytime, anywhere learning

In today’s fast-paced life, everyone is pressed for time. Digital learning takes care of this problem. Online courses give students the flexibility to access it anytime, anywhere, as per their convenience.


The financial limitation is another big challenge that keeps students away from pursuing higher education in their desired field. Unlike the classroom method that requires you to invest money into multiple resources, transportation, and more, online education has no such financial constraints as all you need is a computer or a smartphone with an internet connection.

Whether you choose to pursue business or computer programming, top online BBA and BCA degrees come with their own resources and help you save a lot of money.

Expert assistance

Most of the education programmes available online from reputed institutions enjoy accreditation from various agencies, including NAAC and UGC. Some of these programmes also have tie-ups with top industry leaders and experts to guide students through the online programme and allow them to directly resolve queries by connecting with students.

Additionally, students can also connect with their peers and build their student network to leverage each other’s strengths and learning capabilities.

Personalised learning

Going digital can give students the opportunity to get the advantage of personalised learning. This way students can find the right online course in terms of their field of interest, level, preferred format or schedule.

Online education offers a customised approach to learning that can assist college students in finding the right course as per their learning capabilities and doesn’t necessarily burden them with conventional or standard choices. Such kind of personalisation makes learning much more intuitive, fun and exciting.

Interactive mode of study

Online education offers a greater scope for learning to be engaging. The main reason for this is that the course material is innovatively designed and offered in various engaging formats like quizzes, presentations, games, and projects. In addition to this, video conferencing enables peer to peer discussions that also encourage shy students to participate and engage via chat.

Gain work Experience while studying

Online education presents the perfect opportunity for students to balance both work and study. Students can make use of internships or freelance opportunities while completing their education. For example, Manipal University Jaipur offers an online BCA online degree programme, that is great by itself, but when combined with industry experience, it will open doors for you that seemed impossible earlier.

Final thoughts

With the Indian education sector undergoing digital transformation, we must radically alter the way students learn and what they learn. Adopting digital education models wholeheartedly can encourage an independent inclination among students to learn and engage themselves in the vast sea of knowledge available to them.

Preparing for the post-Covid-19 world

Preparing for the post-Covid-19 world

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has had and is expected to have significant and perhaps lasting effect on pretty much every aspect of our lives. Among those areas expected to be the most affected is the field of education, especially professional education such as engineering and management.

From an educator’s perspective, more than the content of engineering and management education, it is the delivery of the content that is expected to change significantly. It is expected that there will be a strong move towards the online model of delivery or a mixed or hybrid model of delivery.

From the students’ perspective, potentially seismic changes are expected. It could be in terms of what they learn and the cost of education and also in terms of their job prospects. Moreover, the concept of a career itself could change in a big way.

Changing job profiles

It’s been known for quite a while that the productivity revolution brought about by automation in the manufacturing process has been reducing the number of traditional ‘corporate’ jobs for students of engineering and manufacturing while opening up opportunities in other fields. Workflow tools in servicer and other efficiency multipliers have added to this. For example, 20 years ago, who could have thought that a VFX or an animation engineer would be solid career choices? The corona crisis is expected to accelerate this trend further.

In the short term, as the economy staggers and recovers from this crisis, hiring for these jobs may also slow down. Thus, reduction in employment opportunities, especially for engineers may be caused by two separate causes. One would be due to the continuing structural and ongoing reduction because of automation. And the second would be because of the temporary reduction caused by the economic effects of the coronavirus. All in all, there is sufficient reason to worry for the students about to graduate and possibly, for the coming batch too.

It is true that the structural causes and temporary causes will have immediate effects on placement and career prospects. However, one should not overlook potential opportunities that will be created by the response of various economies to respond to the effects of the pandemic, both in the short term and the long term. These opportunities may arise from many responses to the pandemic which may be short term as well as ongoing trends which may persist in the longer term. The effect of three such trends is described below.

Contactless economy

One of the strongest trends forecasts is the move towards a contactless economy, i.e., move towards making transactions, discussions, negotiations and so on without requiring physical contact such as face to face meetings. This is expected to affect the fields of payments, e-commerce, entertainment, business meetings, travel and education very significantly. Thus, there will be tremendous career opportunities in building and offering services and products enabling this trend. Some of the technologies involved, like identification based on voice, are yet to be developed or are in development. But most of the requisite technologies are already available and much of the value addition will be in the areas of developing a suitable architecture, and more importantly, a business plan, to exploit opportunities emerging from this trend. This would call for a deep understanding of the market and customer requirements and skills in developing a value proposition in meeting these opportunities.

Re-engineering global supply chains

Over the past few decades, supply chains have become sophisticated along with the trend towards globalization. While this has resulted in tremendous gains in efficiency, lowered costs and improved quality, most supply chains have also become vulnerable to a single point of failure due to the predominant dependency on a single country, for example, China. Thus, any perturbation caused by that country has had the effect of disrupting these supply chains, adversely affecting the economies of many countries. And this is still in process.

This realization has led to moves towards diversifying supply chains to protect against such vulnerabilities. Already there is the news of Japan offering incentives to its corporations to move their supply chains away from China to its own shores or other countries. We can expect similar actions from most other advanced economies also.

This would create a tremendous demand for engineering graduates with skills in Supply Chain Management (SCM), business process analysis and consulting in re-engineering and repurposing the global supply chains to make them multi-nodal and robust. It would also offer tremendous opportunities to entrepreneurs in manufacturing and in support services such as logistics, cross-border financial management and SCM coordination. The most critical skills needed to leverage these career opportunities include analytical capabilities, understanding of business dynamics, communication skills and entrepreneurial skills, more than technical skills alone.

Emerging technologies

Many technologies in areas such as blockchain, cryptocurrencies, Deep Learning and artificial intelligence, Internet of Things and related technologies, knowledge management, data management and analytics, alternative energy systems among others, have resulted in entirely new products and businesses. These trends may be expected to continue at a similar rapid pace but make suitable adjustments to accommodate some of the changes in human contact and other aspects.

Some of the changes in behavioral patterns induced by the pandemic may actually increase the pace of development and adoption of these technologies. Career opportunities will continue to be created in developing these technologies where technical knowledge is the key driver. However, more opportunities will be created in leveraging these technologies to bring new products and services to the market. In those areas where start-ups and other companies have already brought these into the market, management skills would be critical in scaling up these niches to their full potential.

Besides these three, more trends, both expected and unexpected, are likely with associated effects. There is no dispute that the ongoing pandemic will have negative effects on the economies of nations resulting in significant loss of jobs and opportunities, especially in professional fields like engineering. However, the crisis will be temporary for there is a strong incentive for nations and governments to return the situation to a normal, or rather a new ‘normal’. The effects of the pandemic will lead to significant changes in the things we do as we go about our endeavors and also the way in which we pursue them. These changes will surely throw up new job prospects, career paths and also entrepreneurial opportunities.

We will be entering an even more technology-driven world and much of the opportunities will be created by technologies new, maturing and by technologies still in the labs. What is important to remember is that more of the opportunities exist in not just developing the technologies but in getting them into the market to address the market needs or create new market niches altogether.

How to succeed

Succeeding in this world requires not only a sound understanding of technology but managerial and marketing skills too. While an engineering student can develop a sound understanding of technology during the four years of their undergraduate program, they will need to develop one or more of the other skills. Hence, unless one is looking to continue on the technology path, students should seriously consider a degree such as an MBA to develop and burnish the other skills to increase their chances of getting into the new job market and then to succeed in it. In the new and emerging economic landscape driven by technology, a technical degree will probably not be enough to gain an entry, let alone succeed.
