The Government of India launched the SWAYAM initiative with the goal of achieving the three guiding principles of education policy: access, equity, and quality.
The goal of this initiative is to provide everyone, including the most disadvantaged, with the best teaching and learning tools. ‘SWAYAM’ aims to close the digital divide for students who, up until now, have not experienced the digital revolution and are unable to participate in the knowledge economy.
