Sluggish cross border movement, passive learning, many students missing out on classes and reduced placement opportunities are some the major problems faced by educational institutions during Covid19.

These are self-awareness, understanding the changing environment, continuous learning of new programs and skills and at last interdepartmental learning and use of technology.
