Closing day guest of honor Pramath Raj Sinha, Founding Dean, ISB Hyderabad said online and blended education is the way forward and over time, “learning in line” will be replaced by only “learning”. “Right now, e-learning is fundamental. When the printed book was introduced, no one imagined books as a means of education. But, slowly and steadily, printed books began to become mainstream in education. Even when it comes to online education, we hear the same kind of skepticism. Also, college education can be limited in what it can teach and what it can teach. But with e-learning, many innovations can be achieved,” Sinha added.
Professor Ajit Chaturvedi, Director of IIT Roorkee, who was the keynote speaker, said that e-learning bridges the gap in the education system and brings diversity in education. “The kind of respect e-learning has gained over the past few years was completely unthinkable. Before 2020, we always thought yes, this mode is available, and maybe once in a while 10% or can use it; but the kind of influence it has had over the past few years is truly commendable. At the same time, even in this misery, we are able to reach people who could never physically come to campus. So that’s a new door that’s opened. But I believe other doors have opened and I believe that over the past year it’s shown that he can solve the problem. one of the biggest problems for developing countries,” he added.

What we need today are ethics, attitude and problem-solving skills. Few people have talked about the liberal arts, which are an important component of education. In the future, it will help you with learning, critical thinking, problem solving, etc.
