Embracing the National Digital University


As the launch date of India’s first National Digital University (NDU) approaches, the anticipation and enthusiasm among the stakeholders are growing. New technologies have revolutionised healthcare, education, and communication, offering opportunities for innovative approaches. However, before the global health crisis, university admission options were limited. Digital technology has facilitated the development of teaching technologies, governance frameworks, and employers’ perception of future universities. The 2022–23 budget included the announcement of the establishment of a digital university. This announcement is important as it aligns with the objectives outlined in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

However, it is premature to assert that digital universities can thrive in India. Extensive research must be conducted prior to deeming this subject worthy of consideration. Currently, the most effective strategy entails the integration of digital technologies into the conventional classroom framework. This approach, known as blended learning, hybrid learning, or mixed-mode learning, encompasses various scholarly functions. Many colleges and universities in India are currently experiencing a scarcity of skilled and proficient faculty members. Consequently, a significant number of students are gravitating towards prestigious institutions, leading to a consistent rise in the minimum qualifying marks or percentages required for admission.
