Infosys Launches Online Learning Courses Aligned With National Education Policy 2020

Infosys, a worldwide leader in Next-GEN digital services and consulting, announced the launch of Infosys Springboard to expedite its Environmental, social and governance (ESG) goal to expand digital reskilling initiatives to 10 million-plus people by 2025. 

The flagship program is under the CSR of Infosys that aims to provide a curriculum-rich virtual platform giving corporate-grade learning experiences. A learner can access it on any device. It is open to the students studying from Class 6 to lifelong learners. It will help students upskill their learning digitally.

Infosys Springboard’s holistic set of courses are aligned with India’s National Education Policy 2020 and developed in collaboration with leading e-learning platforms like Coursera and Learnship. The learning program enhances vocational skills and soft skills into the bargain. 

Learners who pass the virtual proctored examination will be facilitated with certifications as a part of the assessment. Nearly 400,000 learners and 300+ education institutions, NGOs and support groups are already onboard Infosys Springboard, the company said in a communique. 

Thirumala Arohi, Senior Vice President and Head – Education, Training and Assessment at Infosys,

said, “Students and educators need digital curricula and platforms that are more than just hand-me-downs from corporates to truly serve their needs. Parents and guardians, on the other hand, need the assurance that the learning prepares their wards adequately for the future. NGOs and support groups need to extend the learning and make it more inclusive across the strata of our society.” In addition, he said the platform creates a framework that addresses all of their pressing concerns.”

Infosys Springboard empowers students, women, teachers, working professionals and NGOs. 

“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for accessible instruments of digital learning for people from all walks of life. Infosys, for decades, has already been working to strengthen digital capabilities within our workforce, our clients, students and the communities we engage with. Infosys Springboard is a significant investment to help deliver on our ongoing ESG commitment to bridge the digital divide as we move into the future,” said Nilanjan Roy, Chief Financial Officer at Infosys.

Infosys Springboard is available on both Play Store and App Store.
