The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the discussion about the contribution of digitization by enhancing the learning outcomes to the students. Using digital technology, the paper reports continuous development and implementation of teaching-learning and assessment process. The authors find that it is advantageous to combine different learning approaches to promote awareness of learning and learning outcomes. It is also necessary to move away from teacher-centric to more learner-centric education. The focus should be on the experiential and lifelong learning practices. Practically, the authors designed and delivered blended course materials for engineering programs. Central focus of OBE is to increase the critical and creative thinking capability of learners. The enhancement of learning outcomes will help the students to face the challenges of employability. This will affect the quality of life and society for a bright future. ICT enabled teaching is introduced focusing mostly on blended approach. Direct assessment and indirect assessment through rubrics is setup. Course outcomes attainment is calculated by using automated excel sheet. The approach combines a range of methods, tools to monitor the learning progression.
