A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Ministry of Human Resources Development (HRD) and the Rotary NGO. Under the MOU, audiovisual content will be created for grades 1 to 12 for students across India. Content will be available through television and online platforms.
The content will be developed based on the NCERT curriculum. The main goal is to provide content for economically weak sections that do not have any means to the Internet. Earlier, May students complained that most of the online content was in English.
According to the MU, the modules will be televised for grades 1-12 through twelve NCERT national television channels. The modules will also be available through the national GOI DIKSHA mobile app.
At the launch, the Human Rights Minister said that during the coronavirus it is our duty to protect our children and this initiative will help keep them safe and on track. He also said that even if we have not reached every child in India, the ministry’s efforts continue in this direction.
Nishank also said that “although NCERT books are available in 15 languages through Diksha and Swayam, which have proven to be one of the largest educational internet portals, the ministry is working with TV networks and radio channels to reach students sitting in the most remote corners of India. ».
The Minister of Human Rights also asked parents and teachers to send their proposals to reduce the program for the next school year.
