ICAI set to spearhead education revolution

Speaking on the occasion,  Raju said, ‘DTH channels would be used for imparting education for the first time, conventionally it is being used only for entertainment. We have made a beginning with one of the most credible body in the country that is the ICAI. This is a great synergy between two bodies.’ He added that such initiative will be of great help in providing useful content to the students.

Raghu said on the occasion, ‘The content that shall be beamed through ICAI channel can be of tremendous help not only to CA students but to commerce students as well. With this facility we can reach out to the remotest corners of the country.’

ICAI is the first professional education body in the country to sign the first MOU (on sharing the MHRD DTH Platform)

The Government has decided to use ICT to make deeper inroads in education system than ever before and for this purpose DTH is the first choice.

Television is the most widely available ICT delivery tool and has the potential of reaching out to approximately 160 million Indian homes (67 per cent) out of 239 million households. Combined with interactive features, TV is the most powerful medium to deliver education in the most cost-effective way to reach masses.

Besides DTH delivery, the content is also intended to be streamed online and would further be converted to e-content and made available on demand, to be viewed on IP connected devices that include, PC?s, smart mobile phones, tablets, ‘Aakash’etc.

Viewers across the country can interact live with the teacher and ask questions and clear doubts through video conferencing (Skype & A-VIEW, etc.), mobile, landline, SMSs, e-mails etc.

The teachers/ subject matter experts shall answer the questions instantaneously on broadcast mode.
