• Abstract

    The Internet of Things (IoT) technologies have become deeply ingrained in every facet of Industry 4.0, including their integration into academic programs and courses at universities and higher education institutions in India. The concept of IoT involves enhancing integration and communication to facilitate education and human-application interaction, characterized by specific objectives. The versatility of IoT enables its application and implementation across various domains, including industry, society, healthcare, engineering education, and environmental management. According to 2016 research by the World Economic Forum (WEF) on the future of jobs, by 2020, over one third of the essential skill sets required for most occupations will be IoT-related. India ranked among the top three nations globally for IoT spending in 2018, as reported by the IDC Worldwide Semi-Annual IoT Spending Guide. Many higher education institutions in India offer specialized courses in IoT, a field that is still evolving as a discipline. Experts believe that this field offers promising career advancement opportunities for young engineering graduates aspiring to work in IoT-related roles. In this context, the purpose of this descriptive research article is to assess the extent to which students utilize various IoT-based learning opportunities, accessible at any time and from any location. The study's findings indicate that every respondent in the research area utilized IoT as a tool to conveniently study topics at their own pace and from anywhere.
