Greetings. The first phase of Unlock 1.0 is on all over the country. While Covid 19 cases are on the rise, there is also general awareness about the inevitability of living with the infection for quite some time. Some states have managed to ward off the impact better than others, and most metros continue to bear the brunt of the virus. But education is going nonstop. Despite the initial hiccups schools and colleges have risen to the challenge and are ensuring that learning never stops. As a Vice chancellor in one of the IDA round table aptly put it” Physical campus access is closed. The university is not”. That probably is the spirit that will drive education forward. There are certain hurdles towards use of technology like the digital divide between the have and have nots remain a matter of concern.
Technology is here to stay and the adaptability of technology in education has become paramount for any educational institution to survive. With time, as we shall emerge from this Pandemic, the totally brick and mortar model will remain but with a co-existence of blended, online and digital form of learning and teaching. And that is the new world order IDA seeks to prepare for its stakeholders.
