The long seen dream and hard-worked initiative of modern and digital India, led by Honorable Prime Minister of India Shri. Narendra Modi, is soon becoming a reality with the new age methods of teaching and learning being used in Indian classrooms.
Involving these advanced approaches and devices in the learning systems is bridging the gap between traditional and modern ways of teaching and imparting knowledge. Certain initiatives taken by the Government towards a better nation in all aspects has given numerous hopes, particularly to the education sector so as to bring in considerable changes for an improved quality of education as compared to the present day.
Initially where the education system used to function on a “one size fits all” principle, now, there are tailor-made programs and a vast range of specializations available to choose from so that every student’s requirement gets fulfilled with satisfactory outcomes. Digital learning has changed the entire face of our education system. Yet, there are various parts of the country where these techniques are still to be implemented. Private universities and colleges have shown a tremendous pace in adopting the digital learning approach. However, if the Government joins hands and jumps into the education industry, we can expect a dramatic transformation in the overall condition of the education system in our country.
The new age learning technology is not just benefitting the students but also the teachers as well and everyone associated with the teaching industry in general. The digital teaching tools such as Learning Management Systems (LMS), YouTube Channels, E-learning, etc. are more engaging and participatory in nature. With advanced learning techniques, teachers can easily assess the aptitudes of students, gauge their interests and suggest the best learning practices that would be most suitable as per their interests. Practical learning methods are helpful for students to attain a better grasp and quickly retain the concerned topics.
Some of the innovative technology tools and initiatives at University include:
|Online Library||Virtual Classrooms|
|CCTV Network across campus||GPS system for security|
|V-Sat Network||Mobile App|
|University Management System Software (ERP)||Access Control Systems
|Hi-speed Internet||Digital Learning tools|

Use of technology at ISBM University is an integral part of its activities. ISBM University uses latest and innovative technology for education and administration with the focus on safety, security, and efficiency.
Unlike the earlier days, education has now extended beyond the four walls of the classroom. Students are no longer confined to books, desks, and benches but have started juggling with multiple things at a time. Today, technology has become an inevitable part of our lives. It is impossible to imagine our lives without the luxuries that we now get to enjoy due to technology.
It has been observed that students who are physically challenged do not respond well to the traditional classroom learning. When exposed to a digital learning setup, they can get a wide arena to showcase their talents without the fear of being judged or becoming too conscious about their disability. Digital learning facilitates enormous ways to fulfill the needs of such special students who have bigger dreams and a will to achieve their goals. The Government has also initiated digital learning measures to bring every kid into the mainstream of the education industry. There is no limit as to who can access the digital learning tools. People of all ages, belonging to any part of the country and from any economic, social or cultural background can enroll for an online course. This feature makes online learning easily accessible to all regardless of eligibility, location, capital, past qualification, etc.
Digital learning is an assortment of a number of educational tools such as audio tutorials, video tutorials, written content, infographics, e-learning modules, animation and a lot more to make the whole process more engaging and stimulating for the students. Students can simultaneously garner more and more information and use their skills to solve hypothetical problems at their work front. To simply conclude, in all honesty, there are countless disadvantages of distance learning but it is still believed to be one of the best tools against eradicating the lack of quality education in the remote areas of our country.
