We stand with everyone fighting on the frontlines. #CDAC Mumbai. Ultimately, the greatest lesson that COVID-19 can teach humanity is that we are all in this together. It is incumbent on us that we not only follow the rules ourselves but also urge other people to do the same. Education has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms.

Educational Technology Unit of C-DAC, Mumbai has been working on building technologies for enhancing teaching learning experience. It aims to integrate the various scattered pieces of effort towards a better educational environment and spearhead new models and technologies for the Centre as well as for others. This covers development of technologies and infrastructure for improving the educational environment and seamless integration of these various constituents of the educational process.
Concerns such as shortage of good quality teachers at most levels of education, fast changing content, need to reach to remote areas, etc have been driving the introduction of various technologies into the domain of education.
