“There are many children who cannot go to school because of issues like school being away or other obstacles. Many parents do not educate their daughters because they do not want to send them out. We are starting this virtual school to ensure that they are educated. This school is inspired by virtual classrooms, which became necessary because of COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
The Delhi CM said that the classes would be online and the recorded lectures would also be uploaded online. To access the platform, students will be provided with an ID and password, using which they can log in and attend classes. The platform will also provide facilities like digital library, recorded lectures etc.
Kejriwal revealed that the platform has been developed by Google and SchoolNet India.
Manish Sisodia tweeted in Hindi, “With the government’s Delhi Model Virtual School, children will now be able to access Delhi Government’s world-class education from anywhere and anytime in the country through online portals and live classes. Prepare for the exam. Like JEE-NEET. Lack of time and distance will not be a hindrance to good education”.
