New Delhi, July 3 (IANS) Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday launched a comprehensive e-learning portal called LEAD — Learning through E-Resources Made Accessible for Delhi — which has more than 10,000 instructional materials and course content for Classes I to XII.
Through LEAD, students will have access to textbooks, study material and course content as per the syllabus of the CBSE, NCERT and the Delhi government’s curriculum. This will include digital QR coded textbooks, learning outcome, explanatory videos, practice questions and evaluation process.
Sisodia said that through LEAD, the Delhi government is sharing its teaching-learning material on the digital platform, DIKSHA.
“It is a way for us to connect and share our programmes and experiences with the entire country. The online portal will also enable us to learn from the teaching-learning experiments and experiences of other states. It is going to be a mutual sharing and enlightening experience for all,” said Sisodia.
The minister also said that during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, a huge number of students and their parents have shown great interest in online learning. This has raised the team’s confidence that children will take advantage of e-learning resources available on the LEAD portal.
“Education has been the top priority of the Delhi government and I am proud that we are taking steps in the right direction. Teachers should always strive to constantly improve and update the content as per the needs of their students,” said Sisodia.
In the last five years, the education team of Delhi government has worked towards reforming the education system in the national capital by taking steps to provide quality education to each child, he said, alluding to the Happiness Curriculum, Mission Buniyaad and Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum.
