Pearl Academy leads the way to deliver creative education using online media
A few months ago, no one had imagined the state the world would be in today. Everything was business and work as usual for everyone until Covid-19 hit the world and how! With the blockade of educational institutions, academics have gone digital. Pearl Academy, a creative education institution with a 27-year legacy, ensures that learning for its students continues in the new reality.
Five years ago, Pearl Academy envisioned the role technology can play in student education, and began investing in the right technology, faculty member training, and the digital curriculum. This has helped the institution to make a smooth transition to 100% online teaching mode. Since the closing, 3,300 students at the academy have held more than 1,300 weekly online classes in new age design, fashion, contemporary media and business.

Learning in a new reality is the opportunity to take advantage of the current uncertainty and turn it into a creativity that defines the future.

It requires the right approach and investment in technology, content, and training for faculty members to use technology, ”says Sharad Mehra, president of Creative Arts Education Society, the advocacy body for Pearl Academy.
