Maharashtra News: It has been exactly over a year till now since most of the schools and other institutions were shut indecisively due to the threat of pandemic across the country. As schools were shut, schools mostly private ones moved to continue the classes for their students online. It was not much of a challenge as private school students and faculties could afford the necessary infrastructure.
But for other millions of students from the lower stratum of the country, their classes were halted indecisively and going online was not seamless and easy as it sounds. So, to continue with the education of these students 38 from 1,000 teachers of the Zilla parishad schools were picked up to create digital content to deliver to the home bound zilla parishad students.
So, these 38 teachers created as many as 2,500 digital contents mostly in the form videos to be uploaded in their YouTube channel, “Indapur Learn from Home”. The videos cover the syllabus of the students. It has over 1.14 lakh views on YouTube with 24,800 subscribers. Further tests were taken place through online medium.
Indapur’s Chief Education Officer R.R Bamne says that they have gathered over 2 lakhs+ responses through online tests till now. This has helped continue their academics smoothly. Now, there are efforts to create an app to make online learning organised and systematic. QR codes are also made to make syllabus accessible anywhere online.
