What is free online schooling?
Online education, which allows students to access courses online for free, is booming.
But what about the teachers, the students and the parents who don’t have access to these services?
The question arises as India’s online education sector is poised to witness a major transformation in the next few years, as the government’s Education Ministry, which oversees online education and a number of other sectors, aims to make it a bigger and better opportunity for the Indian youth.
“The education sector has always been an important driver of the economy, and that will continue to be the case,” said B.K. Sinha, president of the Indian Federation of Students (IFS), a trade body representing more than 3,500 schools and colleges across the country.
“The industry will get bigger and more disruptive and will play an important role in India’s future,” Sinha added.
India is poised, in many ways, to be a much more innovative economy, he said.
“For years, we were going through a slow-down.
We were not able to create a new technology economy.
The industry has been able to absorb new technologies that have been developed by the private sector.
It is now a bigger economy.
So we are very confident about the future of the industry.”
The ministry has made the digital revolution one of its top priorities, and it is hoping to have a lot of success with the launch of free online courses starting this year, and other initiatives.
It has already rolled out a pilot project in the U.K., for example, where the government will provide teachers with digital certificates.
“We are trying to create the perfect ecosystem,” said D.
“Teachers will be able to connect with students, and parents will be in control of their child’s education.”
The new curriculumThe new online course is set to help students and parents make better decisions about the education they choose, including the course.
Teachers are to help create a digital curriculum, with a focus on the topics they teach, which will then be used by students, parents and students to plan the course ahead.
For example, parents can choose the content they want to learn online, and teachers will help parents tailor the lessons based on the content.
The course will also help teachers to track how the courses are performing and how well they are helping students.
“It will help the education system to build a curriculum that is consistent across all its content and services,” said K.V. Raj, principal education officer, Ministry of Science and Technology.
“By using the course, parents will know how their child is doing in school, what content they are using and what they are learning.
Teachers will also have an opportunity to evaluate the quality of the content and teach them new skills.”
While the new online curriculum is still a pilot, the ministry is expected to roll out the entire curriculum across the year, which could have a huge impact on the education sector.
This includes more than 200 courses that will be offered through different providers across the state, and more than 300,000 course offerings, which include online classes.
The new curriculum will also be tailored to each state, but there are also plans to offer courses to all Indian citizens.
The online curriculum will not be free, though, as it will cost around Rs.3,500 per year.
But the ministry plans to start charging a fee to students and their parents for their courses, which they will use to fund the new curriculum.
“There is a cost for online education in India, and we will try to bring down that cost through a single payment,” said Raj.
The government will also encourage students to use the new course for free and to pay for it as they would the fees charged by their private tutors.
For the students, however, the new digital curriculum is a game-changer.
“Online learning is going to change the way I choose my education,” said student K.
“It will change my career choice, and my future.”
For the parents, the curriculum will give them a chance to make decisions about how their children are educated, and how their parents are educated.
“What is the best curriculum?
How should I prepare for this course?” said Nayak, who is studying in Delhi.
“When I am getting ready for my first exams, I am looking at how I can prepare for the next ones.
I will have the right to make a decision.
But now I have this choice.”
