There is a complete 360-degree feedback process to know the experience of students and the constructive ideas are encouraged and incorporated to make the welfare program more deep rooted and meaningful.

As the students have a desire for good quality education irrespective of geographical boundaries we should leverage this unique opportunity to be seen and to interact with students with just a click of a button. Digitization has opened the possibility of what is to offer (in terms of educational institutions) and what is to adopt (in terms of students/ aspirants) on a platform where boundaries are meaningless. This gives digitized education a unique purpose.
Ques 10. What would be your ideal school environment, and how would you encourage that kind of culture?
Ans. An ideal education environment is where learning is made accessible to all. We would like to extend the value of learning to even those students who do have access to such education. Therefore, reach becomes important.Last Updated - 03 Jul 2017
