Pokhriyal said that students and teachers are our main target audience in it and he hoped that they will participate in this campaign wholeheartedly to improve the existing online education methods. “The students who are currently studying in schools or higher educational institutions are the ones engaging with the existing digital platforms offering various courses etc on a daily basis,” the minister said.
They can share what is lacking in the existing online platforms and how we can make them more engaging.
The educators across the country can also come forward to contribute with their expertise and experience in the field of education. “A conversation can be initiated with them, asking them that what do they think an ideal online education ecosystem should look like? Or what are the limitations of the current online education scenario of India? What challenges they face in traditional classrooms that can be addressed through Online education,” Nishank said.
