One-stop portal for school questions

india Updated: Oct 09, 2006 11:58 IST

Playing truant with your studies and hiding the facts from your parents may not be so easy anymore! Conversely, if your desire for learning and knowledge remains unsated in the classroom, the Ministry of Human Resource Development’s innovative new portal Sakshat may just be the thing for you.

Designed with the dual purpose of providing advanced education tools to students and helping parents keep tabs on their children’s performance, the soon-to-be-launched portal Sakshat may just be the one stop solution to nagging problems, the common one being the non-availability of textbooks for senior classes.

Online education

NCERT textbooks of class XI and XII would be available on the portal

Students can e-mail queries to their teachers

Students can compare marks in various subjects with data stored online

While seeking a login, entire information about a student will be given

NCERT textbooks of class XI and XII would be available on the ‘one stop portal’ along with the tutorials, reference material, question and answers and lectures on different aspects of the course from top education institutions like MIT.

And if you are still confused, you have the option to seek clarification from a teacher online. “A student will email his or her query to a teacher posted in the call centre who will reply instantly and the answer will pop up on the screen,” an official said. And it doesn’t end here.

As the entire information about the student will have to be provided while seeking a login for the portal, prospective employers or higher education institutions too would be able to cross-check the academic record.

Powered by experts of CBSE, NCERT, IITs and IGNOU, the government wants to make Sakshat a portal for all education needs, be it an education loan or scholarships or admission in any institution anywhere.
