Can Digitization of Vocational Learning Content Help?
I was a part of a conversation about how education should be open, affordable, and accessible. Now those are three very powerful words that can get a lot of opinionated responses. Generally, I noticed that the efforts are directed towards institutionalized learning whether it be school or college level education. Coming into contact with vocational education I realized that in India, learning resources are present in silos, and largely in printed format. Alternatively, the wealth is stuck in the craniums of experts who are few and far between. Of course there are many players who have created video and other engaging forms of vocational learning but most of this is closed and difficult to find.
