Digisiksha is an initiative to provide facilities to learn Mathematics, Science, Arts, Humanities, Music, Engineering, Architecture, and much more by our quality online courses.
Access to quality education is still a distant dream for many residing in small towns and villages in India. According to a report as of February 2017, there are 789 universities, 37204 colleges and 11443 stand-alone institutions in the country. The number of students enrolled in universities/ colleges for higher education is more than 2.9 crores. Approximately 12% of these students study through distance learning. Reading materials in such cases are sent to the students via post. Examinations are often conducted at different centres.
While the distance learning initiative was an outstanding approach to reach out to those students who can not attend regular colleges and institutions, it has failed to revolutionize learning. The major problems with traditional distance learning are:
- Delay in arrival of study materials sent via post.
- Limitations on the volume of material to be sent.
With the advent of modern internet technology, the speed of connection has improved significantly. Moreover, the cost of accessing the Internet connection has also dropped. Today a high-speed Internet connection has become a household item. The reach of tablet pc and smartphone has also increased during all these years. We can easily get a high-speed internet connection in some of the remotest areas.
At Digisiksha we strive to harvest the benefits of the availability of this high-speed internet connection to reach out to the students and learners from across the country. We offer paid as well as free quality courses to choose from. We have no limitation on the subjects offered.
There is also an option for everybody to become a teacher. If one is good at a particular art, science, technology, literature, language or anything else worth learning he/she is most welcome to join the Digisiksha revolution.
