The objective behind organizing the meet was
that with the rapid growth of private schools,
junior colleges and other such institutions
outside the state results in the exodus of these
students to other states outside the North East.
Initiatives like this meet will help promote IT
enabled teaching and learning in this region of
the country resulting in NE region coming at par
with the national level institutions in the
field of education.
The various participators in this meet have
appreciated this initiative of USTM. They have
stated that they have been benefitted by the
various Technical sessions and that such an
initiative will help them guide the students
better in a situation where all the importance
from government goes to the degree colleges of
the locality rather than the junior colleges.
