The current Covid -19 situation has brought the entire world to a standstill, which lead to a partial or full closure of various firms and businesses and job losses running in millions. The education sector has also been hit pretty badly due to the pandemic, with 1.53 billion students out of school and colleges, impacting 87.6% of the world’s total enrolled students. The nationwide lockdown has accelerated the adoption of digital technology across various sectors and industries. The government is slowly opening up multiple sectors and taking measures to revive the economy; the schools, colleges, and universities have opted for digital classes instead of physical ones. Firms, businesses are adopting more digital ways for payment, training, working, and learning purposes.
