Over the last 3 years, it has been a phenomenal journey to come up with innovative products, solutions, and offerings that can boost and optimize the efforts being made by educational institutions. Nonetheless, the satisfaction gained during these testing times with regard to COVID-19.
What has been most heartening to see is the peers at Manipal Global Education rise to the occasion, working tirelessly to digitally enable learning and assessment for educational institutions and corporates. The Indian education and corporate ecosystem has surprised many in their promptness to adopt the digital mode of learning and assessment. Over the several conversations with Deans, Vice-chancellors, IT Heads, following questions have been raked up:
1.How can you help us in completing our academic sessions through your LMS (Learning Management System)?
2.How can we conduct the end-semester/ end-year examinations remotely, provided we can keep an eye on candidates’ actions?
3.How can we digitally conduct our admissions & counselling cycle for the upcoming academic year?
4.Are there any online courses on latest trends that you can offer to our students?
5.What are the ways in which you can help a corporate to keep their employees digitally engaged?
