Recently, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has announced a new National Educational Alliance for Technology (NEAT) to use technology for better learning outcomes in Higher Education.

  • The scheme aims to use Artificial Intelligence to make learning more personalized and customized as per the requirements of the learner.
  • MHRD aims to recognize the development of technologies in Adaptive Learning and bring them under a common platform so that learners can access it easily.
  • It proposes to create a National Alliance with such technology developing EdTech Companies through a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model.
  • MHRD would act as a facilitator to ensure that the Adaptive Learning Solutions are freely available to a large number of economically backward students.
  • Under the scheme, a National NEAT platform would be created to provide one-stop access to Adaptive Learning Solutions.
  • EdTech companies would be responsible for developing solutions and manage the registration of learners through the NEAT portal.
  • NEAT is aimed at taking the concept of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) platform a step ahead.
  • All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) would be the implementing agency for the NEAT programme.
  • It would help to certify maximum students with highly marketable skills and would also improve the employability of students.
