The curriculum is aimed to make students `IT-capable than just IT- literate'. A typical classroom module from Chrysalis will encourage students to create multimedia packages on general topics. EZ Vidya has partnered Wipro in “teacher empowerment programmes” across the country. The company has also brought out a multimedia CD title `Thiruvalluva Ula” for the Azim Premji Foundation. The students will use sound and animation files in the module to create presentations. According to Chitra Ravi, schools will adopt the curriculum to replace the conventional textbooks and classroom learning.
