With the onset of the pandemic, universities in the Delhi NCR region faced challenges such as conducting online classes and exams, managing records, accessing key reports and sharing analytics in addition to facilitating collaboration and engagement between students, faculties and the college. With the help of CollPoll, educational institutions now provide a contactless digital campus experience with seamless integration of admission, academics, exams, payments, etc to their students.

The Indian education system has recently realised the significance of technology adoption, in the face of the pandemic. With the forced closure of educational institutions during lockdowns, technology enabled solutions have enabled academic continuity, seamless two-way communication, automation of everyday activities and enhanced security in addition to basic access to information. While these solutions have assisted learning, the key benefits of adopting technology in the education sector include efficient and resource friendly tools for effective learning, skill development for teachers to stay abreast with the latest developments in their field, agile and connected learning and smarter classroom education.
Today’s Gen-Z students and the upcoming Gen-Alpha kids are digital natives and far more technically savvy than any previous generation and expect a similar experience in a campus environment. The education industry is being driven to transform to keep up with student expectations by introducing several value-added student-facing activities and CollPoll is betting big on this change.
