Fill Education Gap With Sachin Dev Duggal
Engineer AI
Bridging Indias Education Gaps with Cloud
Computing Indian students are warming up to
edtech platforms to enhance their learning
experience 1.96 Bn by 2021 9 of the young
Indian workforce in 2022 will be deployed in
jobs that do not even exist today

The rapid pace of technological dispersion is
altering every aspect of our lives. Even in
India, as technology sees exponential adoption in
some sectors like health and ecommerce, its
adoption in some of the other sectors has been
slow one key area being education. The
utilisation of PowerPoint presentations, video
narrations, projectors, and other gadgets have
come a long way in education institutions, but
in terms of IT infrastructure, these same
institutions, especially schools, display a
limited strategic vision. Contrariwise, Indian
students are warming up to edtech platforms to
enhance their learning experience. As per
Wikibizpedia, in 2018, the edtech market size
reached just below 550 Mn growing continuously
at a CAGR of 49. The figure is projected to
reach 1960 Mn by 2021. India is now believed
to have over 4,000 edtech startups offering OTT
mobile/desktop apps with coaching for different
subjects. These applications capture students
imaginations by using the latest technologies
and cloud computing services. More importantly,
these apps make education a high engagement
activity for students and transform learning
significantly. Now being used by millions of
students across the country, these edtech apps
are a rage among learners of all kinds. Indian
students are ready, more than ever, to embrace
tech-influenced education.

Addressing The Other Challenges With
Technology New-age technologies hold many
advantages besides making the learning process
more interesting for students. Indias government
understands the positive impact that cloud
computing will have on the education sector and
therefore it is investing more than INR 1 Lakh Cr
in an initiative called RISE (Revitalising
Infrastructure and Systems in Education) that
has a sharp focus on merging the new-age
technologies such as cloud computing, Engineer
AI and VR with the education system. If
optimised, cloud computing coupled with other
technological capabilities can help bridge
many perennial gaps in the education industry
such as quality, reach and cost of
education. Raising Quality The biggest
challenge in the Indian education system is the
existing quality of education. In most
institutions, the course curriculum is not
updated regularly to be in line with global
developments.

To understand the gravity of this issue, let us
look at the scenario for future jobs which is
the primary reason for undertaking education in
the first place. As per a report by
FICCI-EY-NASSCOM, 9 of the young Indian
workforce in 2022 will be deployed in jobs that
do not even exist today whereas 37 workforce
will be deployed in jobs with radically altered
skill sets. Hence, to fill this gap, cloud
computing can be optimized to deliver
standardized courses from a central location to
multiple classrooms. The cloud-enabled
infrastructure can ensure seamless updates in
course content as required and can be delivered
to multiple classrooms at the same time, and
with agility. Also, cloud infrastructure is
highly scalable to shoulder big data, with
on-tap provision for research and analysis on the
data which can allow teachers to present content
matter that is thoroughly researched. Improving
Reach The primary factors that make education a
distant dream for many in India are either the
unavailability of education or, if available, the
high costs that come with it. Cloud computing
can address both issues.

This is as remote classrooms enabled by the cloud
can help in running multiple classrooms with a
small group of teachers whilst also helping to
overcome the lack of skilled teachers or the
physical school infrastructures in more remote
areas. The cloud can also play a massive role in
delivering education by using streaming on the
web. This is because it can be used as an
innovative platform for delivering classroom
lectures enabling seamless collaboration between
teachers and students, irrespective of their
locations. At the same time, students and
teachers can collaborate on studies, projects
using collaboration solutions offered on the
cloud. By utilising cloud platforms, education
institutes can not only reach out to students
across states but also across countries with
despite limited staff thereby limiting the
costs of education delivery. As the cost of
delivering education goes down, students fees
can be lowered in accordance. Streamlining
Administrative Work Besides imparting
education, teachers in Indias education system
are also responsible for various administrative
tasks. The cloud enables education institutions
to smooth out their administrative
responsibilities, which then enables them to
focus on their core activity of teaching.

For instance, CRM systems can help maintain large
volumes of data, such as students details as
well as their academic performances and
growth. These systems can also be a great help
when it comes to managing recruitments,
admissions, and other manually intensive tasks.
Also, business Intelligence platforms enable
teachers to use analytics in the classroom and
helps in evaluating and establishing a course
curriculum with ease. Beyond bridging the
traditional gaps in the education industry, cloud
computing has the power to help Indian education
institutions to not only narrowing the
educational gap with global peers but if
implemented well leapfrog them to become
leading global education providers. The upside
is that governmental efforts are now being
supplemented by many existing IT players with
new players also emerging with innovative
cloud-enabled products to reposition the value of
IT within the mindsets of professionals working
in the education sector.

Hence, the inclusion of Engineer.ai cloud
computing with other new- age technologies in
the education system is an inevitable trend that
is waiting to help the sector transform the
entire country.
