Tripura Govt Launches 24X7 Education Channel For E-Learning!!
Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Monday launched a 24×7 education channel, which will offer lessons to school students, in line with the NCERT syllabus, and help them “make up for the lost learning time” amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Schools closed for nearly 6 months, Tripura State Government has taken a novel approach facilitating virtual learning and online education among the students.
Deb, during his address following the launch of ‘Vande Tripura’, said this is the first such initiative by his government to ensure that students do not miss out on their lessons for an extended period of time.
While launching the channel, Mr Deb noted “We attach maximum importance to education. We have taken multiple steps, after our government came to power three-and-a-half-years ago, to provide quality education to the students. The channel was introduced to engage the students in the process of learning, notwithstanding the restrictions that came with the pandemic.”
Tripura Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath informed the media persons that the educational channel was part of his department’s an innovative scheme – Notun Disha (new direction).
Notun Disha is an attempt by the Tripura Education Department to boost academic prowess of elementary school students during the pandemic. Now with launch of this educational channel, students would be provided both recorded programmes as well as live sessions from June onwards to students from over 4500 schools. “Last year, out government had reached out to almost 90 per cent of all school students with lessons imparted over cable channels and mobile phones,”
