“There are many children who cannot go to school since there are issues like the school being far away or other obstacles. Many parents do not get their daughters educated since they don’t want to send them out. We are starting this virtual school to ensure they get educated. This school is inspired by virtual classes that had been necessitated due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
The classes will be online and recorded lectures will also be uploaded online, the Delhi CM added. 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 a digital library, recorded lectures, etc.
Kejriwal revealed that the platform has been developed by Google and School Net 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. Will be able to prepare for exams like JEE-NEET. Lack of time and distance will not become a hindrance for a good education”.
