Venguswamy Ramaswamy, Global Head, TCS iON, said, “The last 16 months have been the most tumultuous time for educators across the country. Circumstances necessitated that we unlearn, learn, and adapt to new ways of teaching, and evaluating students. At TCS iON, we have been continuously working towards enabling schools, teachers and educators with tools, techniques, and solutions to help simplify their day-to-day job. On the special occasion of World Teachers’ Day, we are elated to offer this free course to the teachers of India who are helping shape the future of our nation.”
