Read here what Nishank said on different topics - Whereas the whole world is shaking with Kovid-19, a developing country like India is doing better in the field of education. This is possible only because of our warriors of education.
We have taken the challenge as an opportunity. No one thought that such a situation would come when the child would stay at home and then what would happen to his education. In such a situation, we put full emphasis on online education and have improved it many times better. Many e-Vidya platforms like e-Pathshala, Deeksha portal have been started.
Itself has become the largest online learning platform in the world. But students who do not have mobile, laptop, internet facility. For them, we have started the Swamprabha channel on TV where different subjects are being taught for 24 hours. Apart from this, educational programs are also being broadcast on radio (AIR). More hard work is being done at this time than usual.
The UGC will decide which of the 100 universities in the country to promote online education.
