Social media platforms, college portals, or video calls can help the officials introduce different ways. This paradigm shift can improve the university's curriculum in the long run. It will increase the digital presence positively and effectively.

This session can include various activities like interviewing skills, public speaking, and much more. Or, they can schedule guest lectures offering sessions related to their streams. If these subjects are not according to their curriculum, then organizations can definitely rely on faculties and students for extra insight.
