What Participants Say About ASMA

  • “With the growing digital penetration in all walks of life; it is inevitable that academia would also be affected by it. The guru shishya model has morphed substantially due to growing intervention of social media - both in and out of classroom. Academics need to accept the change. ASMA Report provides comprehensive insight into these changes and an excellent road-map for understanding how the academic landscape is changing. Congratulations to team ASMA for path-breaking work.”
    Dr. Rohit Vishal Kumar
    Associate Professor (Marketing),
    IMI Bhubaneswar
  • “Not many in education domain are aware of the power of social media. We were not different an year ago. Our social media presence and goals were not well defined. Adoption of Social Media in Academics report (ASMA) gave the right research insights that helped us identify our social media marketing objectives and create a distinct brand value. Today we are way forward, thanks to the entire team of ASMA!”
    Manoj Kumar Pandey
    Chairperson Admission & Associate Professor,
    Birla Institute of Management Technology
  • “I think ASMA allows the practitioners / academicians / academic administrators to think through the possible potential use of social media in future for various types of applications.

    I take this opportunity to congratulate Team ASMA and wish they continue with similar research endeavors in future as well.”

    Dr. A. K. Sen Gupta
    Founder and Convener,
