Students and academicians are making maximum usage of this lockdown period to enrol into numerous courses which are available online like Swayam, Coursera, edX and many more.

It is also a wonderful opportunity for every academician and researcher to create their own OERs (Open Educational Recourses) which not only serves the purpose of students for education but also serves as a catalyst in enhancing professional self-image. Digital initiatives help every academician to see themselves as not only teachers but creators of knowledge.
This is the time of learning and educating others and at the same time combating Covid-19.
