Mr. Rajdeep said, " Emerging technology is becoming widely popular in the education system."
Teachers have to be acclimatised with the new teaching format along with the students as going digital has become the new future, especially during this pandemic situation.
Platforms like MOOCs would develop study centers in areas outside tier 1 and tier 2 cities where the internet is still an issue in India as Internet connectivity cannot be a barrier for education.
