Dr Rajendra Srivatsava, dean of Indian School of Business and Mr Sameer Garde, president of Cisco and SAARC signed a Memorandum of understanding to build India’s first truly Digitally intuitive Campus. This MoU was signed on 3 May with the goal to help students connect, learn and succeed in the digital age.
Cisco’s highly secure core network, unified voice, video, and wireless communications are the basis of ISB’s Digital Campus. They lay the framework for connected campuses, empowered educators, informed students and administrators that have all the tools required for success in the digital world.
This collaboration would make a lot of advancement in the field of education. It would enhance the quality of teaching and learning as the student would be able to learn anywhere, anytime in any device. Access to campus resources and the ability to track students engagement and attendance would also be improved. Most importantly, this MoU would support new online learning experiences, global collaboration, and rich consumption with virtual classrooms while eliminating the boundaries that hinder the students’ learning.
“The digital transformation in the education sector is indeed a must to address the challenges pertaining to technological disruption. The future of jobs is strongly connected with digital transformation, and in the context, the delivery of education must have a strong digital content. We are excited to have this important MoU with Cisco, and I am sure this will be a move towards digital education in India,” says Dr Rajendra.
