Over 30 international thought leaders and speakers will share their insights and perspectives on the future of technology in higher education and how it can amplify efficiencies, help bring back Indian higher education to life and make it future ready.

Prof. S. Vijaya Raju, Chairman, Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) and Shri. JA Chowdary, Special Chief Secretary & IT Advisor to the CM Govt. of Andhra Pradesh will be delivering key note speech.  

Key elements of this edition:

  • Best practice and challenges in course design: Use of AI and other technologies for course design
  • Pedagogy and tech tools for improving learning outcome
  • Best practice and challenges for improving overall efficiency using technologies: examination, admin, scheduling, attendance, 360 degree view analytics

Prof. P. Narasimha Rao , Vice-Chairman, AP State Council of Higher education Government of Andhra Pradesh; Dr S Varadarajan Secretary, APSCHE, Andhra Pradesh; Prof. T. Koteswara Rao, VC-AP State Council Of Higher Education; Dr. Abhijit Gangopadhyay, Dean, Aegis School of Data Science, Cyber Security, Business & Telecom; Founding Dean IIM Indore, Shri. Chandan Sonowal, MD - India & South Asia, Clevertouch Technologies; Former Director - System Builder, Microsoft Founder and many more will be the key dignitaries from the educational sector.  

Prof. S. Vijaya Raju, Chairman, Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE), mentioned, "Since the students of today will need to work in a future where AI is the reality, it's important that our educational institutions expose students to content and learning methodologies driven by technology. We at the state council have been actively working with higher education institutions towards achieving this goal. The EduTech Congress assumes significance, as it offers a platform for all relevant stakeholders to come together to discuss and deliberate on the way forward."  

Prof. P Narasimha Rao, Vice-Chairman, APSCHE, commented, "APSCHE has been closely monitoring the uptake of digital platforms that use AI to provide learning, testing and feedback to students. This offers a solution to the problem of customized learning which has remained unviable given that one teacher has to manage 50-60 students at a time. We expect AI-powered platforms to offer challenges to students that will help identify gaps in their existing knowledge and also offer them a feedback which would help the students identify the problem areas that needs to be worked on."  

"Education as a domain has largely been ruled by human-to-human interaction which we believe is nearing its end. There is a need to identify the tools and the right approach of educating students keeping in mind the demands of the industry. The EduTech Congress is aimed at initiating meaningful conversation around use of AI in course design, skilling, job placement and identification of best practices in the education sector. This also reaffirms our commitment towards offering the best learning environment for students which prepares them for the job-market and helps them in adapting to the changing needs of the work environment," added Prof. S. Varadarajan, Secretary, APSCHE.  

Mr. Bhupesh Daheria, Founder, mUni Campus, said, "AI and digital Technologies are revamping the state of the education sector in India. Top universities globally have implemented digital infra and now utilizing AI for augmenting capabilities of faculties and administrators for improving efficiency in administration, learning, tutoring, grading, assessments and career management. The outcomes of amalgamating technology with innovative learning process have absolutely revolutionized education systems across the globe. It is high time  the Indian Education system implements digital stack for higher education, and so I welcome all the leaders and thank the Govt. of Andhra Pradesh for hosting the third edition of EduTech Congress 2018 in  Acharya Nagarjuna University, Guntur."
