Parents do not want to send girls to far away places. We have made Delhi Virtual School available for all such people. Classes are held in virtual mode. Teachers upload videos of their lectures online.’ Kejriwal revealed.
This virtual school is affiliated to Delhi Board of School Education. All the marks memos and other certification documents are issued by DBSE. These are equivalent to certificates issued by other boards. Based on these students can join undergraduate courses. No fee is charged from the students joining the virtual school. Officials said that the number of students to be taken in the first batch has not been decided yet, but it will be decided on the basis of registrations.
Lessons are taught online through SchoolNet, a schooling platform jointly developed by Google. This online platform has a special feature to take attendance of students. Even if the exams are conducted in virtual mode, special care will be taken with no room for copy. There are tests to check students’ understanding of each topic. Chances of copying are very low. However, students must come to Delhi for both the term-end exams. Students have to write these exams through computer in selected schools in Delhi. Lessons are taught in English and Hindi mediums in the virtual school.
A big revolution is starting today in the field of education. Today the country’s first virtual school started in Delhi. https://t.co/PIms2geisB
