To achieve this, the government has recognized the need to look at non‐linear models of growth and leverage the role of technology in ensuring all learners have equitable access to high‐quality education. One such initiative, SWAYAM, is the Ministry of Education’s (MoE) existing Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) platform providing educational opportunities for a vast number of learners. It aims to bring the best teaching and learning resources to everyone, especially those who have yet to benefit from the digital revolution and access the knowledge economy.
