The state government will launch a portal by January-end to help students interact with subject experts and clear their doubts, officials said on Monday.
The portal — Gyaan Pitara — will have textbooks, audio-visual clips and reference material on each subject and its link will be displayed on the MP Education website, said officials of the Rajya Shiksha Kendra that administers government schools.
“We want children to get the right exposure and hence we have launched this portal where children can see examples and topics through audio-visual clips because it is believed that children learn faster when they see things instead of just reading about them,” said Deepti Gaur Mukherjee, the Rajya Shiksha Kendra commissioner.
“This will be a unique feature and Madhya Pradesh is among a few states in taking an initiative like this.”
Students can upload sample papers from the portal free of cost and take mock tests on different subjects. Teachers can source material from it to teach students, said officials.
“It is an attempt to help students and teachers by providing learning and teaching resources as a supplement to the curriculum,” said an official, adding that the portal would also cater to students of higher classes.
As part of the Digital India drive, the CBSE has recently launched a portal and app called ‘E-CBSE’, a digitised collection of books.
The launch of ‘ePathshala NCERT’ android app and portal in December has helped students, parents, teachers and educators participate in various activities and access the latest material on every subject.
