The COVID19 situation has forced acceleration of adopting digital technology in every walk of life. So, it is imperative that students become very familiar and master remote collaboration and communication tools and become skilled professionals in these tools and technologies. With the introduction of Microsoft 365 and KiTE platforms, Kumaraguru Institutions have made a strategic decision to adopt the best of the world technologies and make it fully available to students. Microsoft and its technologies are widely adopted by the corporate world, which the students will be stepping into in future. So, I request all students to turn this adversity into an opportunity and fully embrace the latest technologies, master them and become skilled professionals.”

KOED is designed to be the gateway to the uninterrupted learning for students of KCT, especially under the present circumstances. It not only ensures continuity, but is also planned to ensure quality and accessible learning. Towards that Project Germinate a taskforce comprising of faculty and few students from all departments of KCT, have put together processes, to enable each faculty member create a virtual learning classroom for his/her students. I am certain students will enjoy the learning activities planned and come together in the virtual classroom and create a highly engaging ecosystem, and keep the warm light of learning glowing brightly.
