Microsoft Partners with Ed4All and NIOS to Empower Students in an Open School System
Microsoft and the edtech platform Ed4All have collaborated with the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) to transform learning in the open education system in India and equip students with digital skills to prepare them for employment with BLEAP for NIOS, a first of its kind of personalized technology platform that offers a personalized learning experience.
The partnership will benefit more than 170 million learners in India’s open education ecosystem by giving them access to the tools, experiences and skills needed to be ready to work in a digital economy.
Our partnership with NIOS to empower more than 170 million learners across the country is an important step in ensuring equity in education and skills. As we move rapidly towards a digital economy, the skills of tomorrow will be very different from those we need today. With Ed4All, we are committed to providing access to the technology, skills and resources that students need to be successful in a digital world.
Built on the Microsoft stack of Teams, M365 and Azure, BLEAP for NIOS, the platform brings together live courses and labs, recorded sessions, remotely monitored exams and assessments, as well as courses and certifications based on skills to provide a holistic learning experience. Students will have access to digital courses on the latest technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, cybersecurity, and data science, among others.
