Enabling Schools with Smart Virtual Class Room Facility- Phase I
Smart Virtual Classroom (SVC) is a pre-scheduled, online, teacher-led pedagogical intervention where, unlike conventional classrooms, teachers are not present with learners physically but instead interact through public network in an online learning environment.
As a part of Digital India Initiative, ERNET India successfully envisaged, implemented and operated Smart Virtual Classroom facilities in 3204 Govt. owned/controlled schools plus 50 DIETs in Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Tripura, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu with the funding support from Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), Govt. of India. The implemented Smart Virtual Classroom successfully improved the quality of education, addressed the need of specialized teaching staff at remote/rural location and provided a single cross-state ICT enabled knowledge sharing platform for training & skill development of educationist / teachers. The above project has been successful in conducting 20,450+ sessions, benefitting 70,77,600 students and training 65,092 teachers across 3204 Schools and 50 DIETs. The project funding support from MeitY has ended on 31st December 2019 and the project is handed over to State Education Department. Currently ERNET India is managing the operations & maintenance of installed infrastructure in Himachal Pradesh by utilizing State fund and remaining project States namely Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Tripura are managing the operations & maintenance of installed infrastructure by their own resources.
