HCL Learning also won awards in the “Best ICT Enabled Content for K12 Education” & “Best Technology Based Solutions for Higher Education Institutes” categories for their Digischool & Digicampus programs respectively at the Star News National Education Awards function held in Mumbai. Another award bagged by HCL Learning in 2012 was for its Institute Management System (IMS) program which won the award for “Best Cloud Based Education Institute Management System” at the Bloomberg UTV B-School Excellence Awards.
Unfortunately, our HRD Minister cannot see the potential of this large and established company to supply tablets to Indian students for its ambitious project to provide tablets to school students. Instead of awarding contract to an untested foreign company for Aakash tablet, we fail to understand why honourable minister does not entrust this project to HCL, which will make things happen unlike Datawind, which keeps on postponing the delivery on one pretext or other.
