“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for accessible instruments of digital learning for people from all walks of life. Infosys, for decades, has already been working to strengthen digital capabilities within our own workforce, our clients, students and the communities we engage with. Infosys Springboard is a significant investment to help deliver on our ongoing ESG commitment to bridge the digital divide as we move into the future,” said Nilanjan Roy, chief financial officer at Infosys.
“Students and educators need digital curricula and platforms that are more than just hand-me-downs from corporates to truly serve their needs. Parents and guardians, on the other hand, need the assurance that the learning prepares their wards adequately for the future. NGOs and support groups need to extend the learning and make it more inclusive across the strata of our society. Infosys Springboard creates a framework that addresses all of their pressing concerns,” said Thirumala Arohi, senior vice-president and head of education, training and assessment at Infosys.
Infosys Springboard is now available on both Play Store and App Store.
