Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh
The Uttar Pradesh government is all set to start the newly set up e-learning parks in 120 degree colleges of the state. The parks have been created to give a boost of innovation in higher education and make higher education campuses interesting.
The state’s Higher Education department has already completed the work of setting up 87 e-learning parks in the state and in the next 100 days, the department will complete the remaining work. This will greatly benefit the students in rural areas where the internet connectivity is slow and students have to face difficulties in online learning.
These e-learning parks will be equipped with computer, internet connection, and Wi-Fi facilities along with a Digital Library. Education activities will also get a boost with the facility of e-learning park, as well as it will be easy to disseminate government schemes in remote and backward areas of the village.
Meanwhile, the department is going to launch the ABACUS-UP portal in the next 100 days, through which various aspects of students and teachers will be linked. The state level Academic Bank of Credit ‘ABACUS-UP’ portal is part of NEP implementation by UP. All higher education institutes that come under the preview of NEP-20 have also been asked to upload data of students and teachers on the ABACUS-UP portal.
Grants to be approved by the department for research and development scheme will be allowed to only those colleges, whose data of students and teachers enrolled under NEP 2020 will be uploaded on ABACUS-UP portal.
