TCS iON, part of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has partnered with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to provide its training partners access to the TCS iON Digital Glass Room, enabling online vocational skills training for millions of students across the country.
The partnership will strengthen NSDC’s online content aggregation platform– eSkill India–through which it enables e-learning amongst skill seekers and will contribute towards strengthening the Skill India mission.
NSDC has a network of over 500 training partners across the country which will access TCS iON Digital Glass Room to offer virtual skilling programmes during the lockdown and thereafter.
A NSDC certification helps skilled workers bargain for up to 15% higher remuneration. NSDC is piloting a platform to help connect skilled workers to demand across industry clusters in the country to help avoid migration for jobs.
The TCS iON Digital Glass Room will enable skill trainers to deliver lectures, create and share content, share and evaluate assignments, conduct formative tests, and monitor learners’ progress. The platform also enables online collaboration among students and trainers through debates, quizzes, polls and surveys. Students and trainers can share posts, like, vote and chat with each other, ensuring seamless education.
