The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) launched a podcast app ‘Shiksha Vani’ earlier this week to disseminate crucial information to students and parents in a timely manner.
The board also mentioned that its first episode, on the evaluation process of Class 10 and 12 board examinations, has been released on the platform. As the examinations proceed, the episode helps students understand how their completed papers will be evaluated.
The board’s notification read: “Easy availability of up-to-date information regarding educational tools and initiatives can improve outcomes, and that is the reason why the board constantly endeavours to be in touch with its stakeholders. The board also believes in the use of new, appropriate and user-friendly technology to ensure the proper spread of its directions.”
“All stakeholders involved in the conduct of exams and in the evaluation of answer books are hereby informed that the first podcast related to the process of evaluation has been uploaded for listening,” the notification added.
