Bindu said the state’s higher education sector will undergo a complete overhaul with a curriculum review based on the recommendations of a seven-member commission, headed by Dr. Shyam B Menon.

According to a report in The New Indian Express, Bindu said, “Proposals are invited to combine traditional learning styles with the online facility in whatever manner best suits the learner’s objectives. The commission, who submitted her interim report, informed that she would soon submit the final report”.

She said a “digital repository” is underway at all universities in the state to store course materials and program details.
