Speaking after inaugurating the workshop, Dr. Bhagyavana S. Mudigoudra, Special Officer, E-Governance Convenor and State Nodal Officer – AISHE, RUSA said that AISHE data is a wealth of extensive data in the higher education sector and provide the decision makers and stakeholders, an opportunity to make informal decisions and plans. Pointing out that Universities have played a major role in providing data and as well as in facilitating data uploading from colleges which are academically associated with them, Dr. Mudigoudra said that it had become imperative for higher education institutions to get linked to AISHE data portal.
Noting that Information is power in this era of innovations and discoveries, he said the portal will be of great help to educational institutions for knowing about the approving authority and for seeking any doubts or clarifications.
Emphasising that AISHE portal linking is a must for NAAC accreditation, he said that adding an Institute with the portal will be of much help to that institute for securing scholarship and research materials.
