CBSE books and learning material will be available online for free
All CBSE books and learning material will be made available online free as part of the Centre's good governance efforts, Union Human Resource Minister Smriti Irani said on Saturday.
At a function in Kendriya Vidyalaya in east Delhi, she said that initiatives would be undertaken to ensure holistic nurturing and improve learning outcomes at these schools.
"We made NCERT books available online free through e-books and mobile applications a month-and-a-half ago. We are similarly going to make CBSE books available online along with additional learning material and videos as part of our good governance efforts," the Minister said.
She said the Centre would launch Shaala Darpan and Saransh services (for Class I to Class XII students) in Kendriya Vidyalayas in the next academic year.
The Shaala Darpan service is aimed at using SMSs to keep parents informed about their wards' attendance, time table and marks in exams, while Saransh will help parents compare the subject-wise learning outcomes of their children, with others at the district, State and national levels.
Earlier, addressing the function, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia stressed the role of education in the lives of children.
