The session covered the basics of marketing and Digital Marketing. Apart from this, the scholars were divided into their groups, the agencies were formed, the Digital Scholar Oath was taken, and the journey kick-started.
Following week, the scholars were handed over their new domains and websites, and professional photoshoot for various channels was taken. And thus started the blogging journey, which will see them fighting out for the most number of views and engagements. At the end of the session, one winner was to be crowned as the best blogger of the batch.
The journey went on for 3 months, and all the basic and comprehensive aspects of the Digital Marketing area were covered. These were well coupled with classroom activities, field trips to clients, festive celebrations, and lots of fun and activity.

From the description in this article, it clearly appears that this is an institute which is imparting some skill-based knowledge to the students interested in various matters and actions related to digital marketing. Today people are learning blogging and website designs by trial and error and with a lot of permutations and combinations in online manoeuvring. With this type of institutes and courses available now the things would be in better shape for the interested candidates for making a career in the digital marketing and digital web channel launching and initiating a new digital outlet for some innovative service.
There is a big need of this type of practically oriented training centres in our country as there is a large population of students who want to do some concrete work in the online digital world but do not have any guidance and direction to go ahead. It is always better to do such projects in a group rather than solo. A new business project requires help in many fronts and that is where group dynamics matters. This type of new institutes having a radical approach to the training issues in this area is a welcome measure.
