The Delhi government is in talks with an online learning platform to explore a programme for students that extends the accessibility of educational resources, especially in Maths and Science subjects, during the continuous lockdown crisis. The official is looking to design ways to approach students to continue with their learning in the time of nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19 situation, according to government officials.
Over 9,000 students have already signed up for online classes which began on Monday.
“With a goal to design a simple and well- organized learning plan for the students of other classes too during the time of lockdown, the Delhi government is planning to tie up with the Khan Academy,” the government stated in an official articulation.
“Khan Academy, An educational non-profit organization, which provides interactive learning materials for students, has been working to present guided self- learning ways for school students with its own tutors. We are expecting to utilize the content and resources offered by this educational portal to incorporate it in addition to the already rolled out online sessions for Class 12 students,” it said.
The objective is to efficiently continue with the academic cycles of the students and not let the lockdown impact their learning, it added.
As per the plan, students will be provided with audio and video-based content along with self-assessment activities. “Special doubt- clearing sessions on important topics will be conducted for students. The team would be instrumental in facilitating live discussions and ensuring feedback,” the government asserted.
