Irrespective of the ongoing pandemic unleashed by novel Coronavirus, a digital and tech makeover for all the industries was required. The lockdown and losses suffered by all industries worldwide just hastened the process was some. Everyone now is aware of the power of digital and tech makeover. They realise how tech can be one’s best friend to keep a floating and even hiving in the highly competitive market.  In this blog, we will examine the issue for one particular industry – education. At least in India, a majority of educational institutions of any size and shape has shied away from digital improvements. 

Educational institutes around the world (not just India) are not open on embracing tech unfortunately.  There are many reasons for the same. We can list them out as the following: 

  • Reluctance to embrace new technologies stems from a lack of interest or the urge to step – out of “comfort zone” of employees of different institutions. They are happy as they are and don’t wish to make the extra efforts. 

  • Inadequate trained manpower in these institutions to lead or manage these digital makeovers. Educational institutions need to pay attention on continuous learning of their staff to ensure the benefits of digital transformation are achieved. 

  • Expenses involved with many institutions facing cutbacks on their funds for a variety of reasons.  

  • Not being “woke “ to the need for digital makeover and its many advantages. 

  • Absence of digital makeover strategy by the top management. A beginning point and a fool proof strategy are hard to come in this industry but are deemed absolutely necessary. 

  • Data is all over the place. With data scattered and in different sources, there is reluctance in investing time and energy to collate the same, clean and use for the digital changes. A lot needs to be done to get the data accurate and clean.  Plus, one needs help to figure out how to get this data working for the schools, colleges and institutes. This could be in the form of overview and data analysis to make tough decisions.
