Welcome you in today’s forum, what are your takeaways from the summit?
Yeah, very nice to be here with you, your name itself is Chandan Anand so on one hand there is a Chandan that is sandalwood on the other hand there is Anand means happiness and this fragrance take place only when our learners are well skilled and that skills comes from not the traditional way but transformational digital way. This digitalization process which we are accommodating with those who are making a very excellent contribution in digital process and that is one of which we have experienced is that of Coursera courses and these courses we found at Sri Balaji University Pune are useful, students are also getting advantage of it. Sometimes it is difficult but Balaji university always welcomes the difficulties and we accept the challenges and we make the best of the best solution to solve these particular problems.
How does the such kind of forums help where we have exhibition from the corporate and side-by-side conference also going on where the entire industry is uniting?
See after all it is the society which is a combination of all these particular stakeholders and whenever these stakeholders are coming together with their merits with their limitations then certainly to discuss to discourse and to have a dialogue that will certainly give us a future road or future map how to proceed further.
