During the pandemic, the team at VEDA conducted online sessions twice in a week which were open to all; students, parents, educationist, and guided them the benefits of Digital Opportunities in coming future.
Understanding the future of digital India, VEDA started online classes since 2014 with big investment and faced many challenges and hurdles technically. They succeeded and were awarded in an event “TOP Education Brands in India-2019” in Bengaluru event which was hosted by Image Planet, so the team and the faculty members were prepared when the course was completely taken online due to pandemic.
The team now has its own digital library; online students classrooms year wise. During this pandemic, VEDA had an upper hand by all means among the rest of the Institutes.
