Simplilearn and National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) have formed a partnership in India to support the continuity of digital skilling of the Indian workforce. Simplilearn will help deliver learning in digital skills and technologies by hosting more than 1,000 hours of free learning on its Android and iOS mobile apps for learners across India.

The temporary shutdown of institutions and universities due to the COVID-19 lockdown has affected the overall learning of a large number of students and professionals alike. This is a significant concern for NSDC, whose goal is to fill the growing need in India for skilled manpower across industry sectors and narrow the existing gap between the demand for and supply of skills. That prompted them to partner with Simplilearn to offer a way for learners to acquire new digital skills during the lockdown.

Leveraging the power of technology, both Simplilearn and NSDC will enable access to over 1,000 hours of digital programs under the categories of AI and Machine Learning, Big Data, Data Science & Business Intelligence, Cyber Security, Software Development, Project management, and Digital marketing. All programs are designed with a unique Blended Learning structure, which provides learners theoretical understanding and practical hands-on experience with digital skills. Aspirants can find program details on NSDC’s eLearning portal - eSkill India - and access the learning programs on the Simplilearn Android mobile app.

NSDC’s eSkill India portal provides learners a platform to explore online skill-courses anytime, anywhere. The portal leverages technology to enable skill seekers to accelerate their learning through methods like virtual learning and remote classroom. eSkillIndia catalogues more than 450 e-learning courses in multiple Indian languages through leading knowledge providers.  You can read more about NSDC here.
