Kumar reviewed educational programmes to be undertaken in the northeastern states through the distance learning varsity's newly-set-up North East Council of IGNOU Regional Centres (NECIRC).
"The advantage is that, this broadband connectivity will be a passage for us, and all digital materials will run on this broadband connectivity where our learners located in remote areas will also get access," he told journalists here.
The Vice Chancellor said IGNOU had signed an MoU with the National e-governance division of the Ninistry of Information Technology to provide the entire e-governance materials prepared under the Digital India initiative and nation-wide internet network free of cost.
Asked about the challenges of poor internet connectivity in implementing digital learning in the Northeast due to poor internet connectivity, Kumar said: "We have revived our Gyan Darshan and additional facility of Swayam Prabha initiative of the HRD ministry to access the remotest part of the region."
