Technological advancements in Artificial Intelligence and automation, have led to disruptions in many industries in India and it has also resulted in the increased rate of unemployment and underemployment of fresh graduates. To address these critical challenges of employment, education institutions and regulatory bodies of higher education embrace innovative technologies to create engaging learning and teaching environments, provide industry-required skills and facilitate global networking and collaboration.
Fortunately, in today’s digital world there are innumerable technological solutions, services and resources available for students, educators and institutions to choose from. Leveraging these technologies make academic teaching more engaging, prepare students with employability skills and integrate them with industry for better job opportunities. However, economic and infrastructure disparities between different regions of the country, and the lack of ease of access to the required resources for education, employability and employment are still a major challenge to foster the inclusive development.
