The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) collaborates with Rotary India to telecast education content for classes I to XII to stimulate learning through television channels. Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank is hopeful about the collaboration capable of disseminating NCERT-approved content in the rural corners of the country.
“Since March 2020, when the novel coronavirus was declared a pandemic, learners, teachers, parents and the entire education community have been gravely affected. In this scenario, we have been working tirelessly to develop best education system rooted in Indian ethos with technology and innovation as strong pillars,” commented Nishank.
12 channels will be responsible for broadcasting the NCERT learning videos dedicatedly. The curriculum-based modules will be available on TV from July onwards.
“The content is currently available in Hindi and Punjabi and hence shall be implemented immediately across 12 states or UTs benefiting approximately 10 crores students. The intellectual rights to the content would be with Rotary and provided to the NCERT so that the said content can be translated to all regional languages by NCERT and the respective state SCERTs in the next few months,” the Ministry has further confirmed about learning through television in an official statement.
