Abstract

This paper sought to an act of measuring the impact of COVID-19 pandemic in unleashing digital transformation in the education sector in India. In order to measure the impact, the study tracked the rate at which the virtual tools were used by various schools and institutions during the COVID-19 lockdown. Data were obtained from secondary sources, mainly newspaper articles, magazines and peer-reviewed journals. The findings are that, in India, during the lockdown, a variety of virtual tools were unleashed from primary education to higher and tertiary education where educational activities switched to online learning. These observations point to the fact that India, generally, has some pockets of excellence to drive the education sector to the next level, which has the potential to increase access. Access to education has always been a challenge due to a limited number of spaces available. Much as this pandemic has brought with it massive human suffering across the globe, there is an opportunity to assess successes and failures of deployed technologies, costs associated with them, and scaling these technologies to improve access.
