In the phase 1 of the VidyaDaan initiative, CBSE had pooled various types of e-learning content for classes 6 to 9 from contributors from different affiliated schools. In phase 1, CBSE was able to develop a repository of over 10,000 e-learning content pieces.
For classes 11-12, chapter-wise PDFs are available on DIKSHA platform with additional e-content such as lesson plans, concept maps, and other reading material.
The board expects that within a short period of time, well-defined e-learning content across the core subjects along with assessment strategies will be available across grades 1 to 12 for CBSE schools.
VidyaDaan 2.0 has a content contribution tool that provides a structured interface for the contributors to register and contribute different types of e-learning content (such as, explanation videos, presentations, competency-based items, quizzes, etc.), for any grade (from grade 1 to 12), for any subject as specified by the states/UTs.
Educationists, subject experts, schools, government and non-government organizations, individuals can submit e-content on the platform.
Educational Institutes can nominate themselves on the VidyaDaan portal as a contributing organization by choosing one of the four e-learning content development projects available on the website. The four projects pertain to e-content for grades 1-5, grades 6-8, grades 9-10, and grades 11-12.
Interested organizations and individuals need to register on the platform by May 10. After the proposals are approved, the contributors will have to upload their e-learning content between May 16 and May 26, 2020.
Curation and finalization of the contributions will be done between May 27 and June 10, 2020.
