The alumni portal will help provide an updated database of registered alumni, which would be useful in enhancing their engagement with the university.
The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) Tuesday launched an alumni portal ignoualumni.samarth.edu.in and a Facebook page for alumni facebook.com/ignou.alumni. The portal was launched in a meeting chaired by Nageshwar Rao, vice chancellor, IGNOU.
