A consortium of leading academicians and professors to serve as a resource centre has been launched for educational institutions to take better policy decisions. It is an initiative aimed at aiding teacher’s engagements and outreach irrespective of where an institution is located. Deepak Kumar Mukaddam, the chancellor’s nominee in the University of Mumbai’s management council is founder of this idea.
The portal was launched by Maharashtra Higher and Technical Education Minister Vinod Tawde yesterday. Mr Tawde added, “This will open up a new window of resources for educational institutes. It is a welcome move of the University of Mumbai.” Deepak Kumar Mukadam said the portal will benefit professors and academicians across the country under one platform.
“Their work is now just a click away. The portal will serve as a resource centre for educational institutions in government, semi-government, and private sectors to develop their policies and other activities,” he added. The database of this portal will help in providing requisite information to government agencies and NGOs to help them in making public policy decisions. It will also help in allocation of resources for authorities related to higher education according to the website.
