Acharya Nagarjuna University (ANU), a state university in Andhra Pradesh, has partnered with TeamLease Edtech to extend technology-enabled learning and employability services to its distance education students. It also seeks to equip students with digital skills to make them ready for the future.
Through this collaboration, the students of the Center for Distance Education (CDE) will get access to an online learning mobile application. The mobile application will have a digitised version of reading material, pre-recorded videos of the university professors, self-assessment tests, and the provision to reach out to the faculty in case of any doubt. Additionally, students participate in live sessions with the university faculty via their mobile app.
With the help of TeamLease Edtech, ANU plans to set up a call center that will assist students with telephonic, email-based and app-based support. Additionally, the university is also trying to create high-quality audio-visual content to support UGC's prescribed four-quadrant approach to provide a world-class learner experience. Apart from that, the university also intends to provide apprenticeships and employability services to CDE students.
Shantanu Rooj, founder and chief executive officer of TeamLease Edtech said, "We shall provide technology services and employability support to the distance education students of the university and help the university create a new standard for distance education in the country."
“We have always strived to make education accessible for all, and we are glad to be partnering with TeamLease EdTech in our journey of fulfilling this vision," says Dr. Nagaraju Battu, the Director of CDE of the University, said while addressing their collaboration.
