Indian Govt launches Vidyadaan 2.0 on DIKSHA App – a great initiative during the covid crisis

The Govt of India Recognized the need for good quality educational content for school students. This was during coronavirus enforced restrictions. They then launched a national programme VidyaDaan 2.0 on 22nd April, 2020. They further invited e-learning content contributions from the education fraternity.

The DIKSHA app will use the content we will provide to them to help millions of children across the country. It will allow them to continue their learning anytime, anywhere.

Introducing Vidyadaan 2.0, the MHRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said

“VidyaDaan is conceptualized as a common national program. It is for individuals and organizations across the country to donate/contribute e-learning resources for both school and higher education. All that to ensure continuity of quality learning. “

“I believe that for those whose contribution will be included in initiation e-learning material, it will be a matter of pride and an opportunity to create a national identity,” adds the Minister.

DIKSHA App and its benefit to students

The DIKSHA App was launched in 2017 by the MHRD and Ek Step team. The objective was to create a central free repository of crowd sourced digital content. All that for state education departments to use it via linking the content to their textbooks via energized bar codes. 

The teachers and students can scan the code and watch the videos from the mobile app. Additionally, the content is also available to be view and learnt from, through the DIKSHA website and mobile app. 

Vidyadaan 2.0 for DIKSHA

The Vidyadaan 2.0 launched in 2020 to bring together the best of educational content on the government platform. It was to support school students with continued education at homes, and create a central content repository for all subjects and all classes 1st to 12th for school curriculum. 

All the details of the Vidyadaan program are available on the website: https://vdn.diksha.gov.in/
