President stresses on improving quality of educationUpdated on : 09-07-2017 11:55 PM
President Pranab Mukherjee today launched two programmes to take education to the remotest corners of the country with the help of technology.


The President also launched a 'National Academic Depository' where verified educational records would be digitally stored by universities or a board to counter forgery.

The programmes Swayam and Swayam Prabha -- for making education more accessible -- and the depository were conceived and executed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

Under Swayam, courses would be offered through digital classrooms with online study material available free of cost in videos.

Students who want certification will have to be registered and then offered a certificate on the completion of the course for a nominal fee.

They would have the opportunity to raise queries which would be answered in real time.

The President emphasized on the "quality" of teaching and learning process in higher educational institutions.
