With the aim of strengthening and promoting digital learning in schools, East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has launched an e-library for both students and teachers. This e-library was created as a joint effort of the Civil Body and the Tech Mahindra Foundation.
The e-library was inaugurated Monday by EDMC Commissioner Vikas Anand and is being promoted as a digital repository of learning resources. A team of several in-Service Teacher Education Institute, Tech Mahindra Foundation and EDMC mentor teachers came together during the COVID-19 pandemic to put together resources for this e-library.
“We have launched an e-library of learning resources for both teachers and students. E-library was developed by the education department with the help of Tech Mahindra Foundation,” said EDMC Commissioner Vikas Anand. He also explained that the e-library contains teaching aids, worksheets and audiovisual teaching aids for primary school students.
This library has study materials in the form of worksheets, audio and videos for various subjects such as Hindi, English, Mathematics and Social Studies for Primary Education, along with Childcare and Education (ECCE) resources.
Officials have said credentials for this e-library will soon be provided to educators and students across the state. Authorities hope that this e-library will help students and teachers a lot in this pandemic era as not many students can take offline classes.
“The school’s website contains information about online classes, student and staff information, and information about a particular school’s infrastructure. Any citizen can see the details of any school at any time through EDMC’s online services. All websites are regularly updated. Under the MIS Lab, online classes are taught and recorded for future reference. Department IDs allow us to track the duration and number of students participating in online classes,” EDMC spokesman Rakesh Gupta was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
