How has e-content been helping you?

School has very recently completed the implementation of the e-contents for K-12 state board curriculum, computer skills contents and spoken english contents provided by Guruji World Technologies Pvt. Ltd. under ICT@School project Phase II, Maharashtra.

e-Contents implemented by GurujiWorld are as per syllabus of state board and easy to learn so teachers and students are enjoying the new ICT based learning approach.

What are the problematic areas you have come across in deploying e-Content?

School was lacking in infrastructure which was required for the implementation of digital learning. In this regard we have
received lot of help from Director of Education (Secondary & Higher Secondary). Government has provided us basic infrastructure such as hardware, projectors, lab infrastructure along with full time instructor for the period of 5 years to run this project successfully.

How do you train your teachers to adopt e-Content in your classes?

Solution providers have trained the instructors to adopt econtents in classes. Students and teachers are excited to have e-contents in school. Teachers are willingly using e-contents in classes. They found it attention-grabbing and effective with a student centric approach. Now a day’s parents are aware of e-learning and its benefits so they are evenly happy.

Give us an example of using e-Content system that has solved your students’ issues.

E-contents have been beneficial for our students as e-contents facilitate them and keep them engage during the classes. Instead of traditional teaching methods in classrooms, students are exposed to the advanced digital learning tools and e-contents repository. Students are also provided with World Wide Web in labs to prepare them for the competitive persona and know-how attitude.

Can you give us an overview of the solutions that you are using in examination and assessment in your school?

Along with the traditional method of assessments, our solution provider has also incorporated e-assessments at the end of the every chapter for all the subjects. This is an innovative solution and subject teachers can carry out oral assessments or select the chapters and carry out a mock assessment for those particular chapters. Students also get their results instantly after finishing the exam.

Tell us about your solution providers.

HCL and Guruji World are our solution providers for hardware and software respectively. We are very happy with the services which we are getting from our service providers.

How the challenges of traditional examination methodology are overcome by the introduction of modern ICT solutions?

The Director of Education (Secondary & Higher Secondary) has provided us basic infrastructure and a full time instructor for the period of five years to run this project successfully

We were facing challenges with traditional methods of examination and assessments. We tried to overcome these challenges by using tools offered by solution providers. Solution providers have given handy assessments with each chapter which is very useful for students as well as teachers. Though multiple choice questions, they are very effective and evaluation is easier and accurate, subjective questions are also equally essential and should be obligatory for students to enhance their creative and ingenious minds.
