However, the company adapted quickly to the challenges and managed the learning needs of its students effectively through its wide-ranging digital assets through hybrid blended learning models. The company embarked on various concerted efforts of business continuity planning with key focus on safety / wellbeing, strengthening virtual / digital learning ecosystem, supporting our partners, connecting with our consumers and cost optimization.”
