The idea behind this endeavor was to add transparency to the functioning and implementation of resources & programs. The entire academic field was introduced to new mediums of exploring resources and discovering ways and means to smoothen the functioning of dispersal and absorption of knowledge. There was a healthy discussion regarding digitalization and its impact. All the stakeholders shared their views, ideas and voiced their concerns for the same.
