The Govt Just Launched 2 New Tech-Based Education Initiatives That Can Greatly Help Us

The Govt Just Launched 2 New Tech-Based Education Initiatives That Can Greatly Help Us

From enabling parents to see their child's performance online to helping schools plan better curricula, these initiatives by the HRD focus on improving the education scenario in the country.

The government’s Digital India movement is gathering momentum to have far reaching consequences in the country. How can the education sector be left behind then? The Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) has come up with a couple of interesting initiatives to improve the state of education in schools.

One of them is a mobile application called ePathshala for students, teachers, educators and even parents.

This application enables “learning on the go.” Users can download all NCERT books on their smartphones and also view recorded lectures. The app also contains other types of e-books – a digital publishing software called E-Pub 3.0 and flipbooks in English, Hindi and Urdu.

The app, which can be accessed on Android, iOS and Windows, is helpful not just for students but also teachers. The latter can use it to view information on new teaching methods to make their classes more interesting. In addition to this, parents can also follow their wards’ grades and performance in different subjects by using this app.

Another initiative, Saransh, allows schools to identify areas of improvement to facilitate and implement change.


Saransh is an online self-review tool for schools affiliated to the CBSE board. It will allow schools to identity areas of improvement in students, teachers and curriculum and take measures to implement change.

To use the tool, parents, teachers and schools have to register on the site. While anyone can see the generic result statistics of the board and compare overall results and subject-wise results between states, regions, and school categories, etc., the comprehensive details of the students will only be available to the registered users.

The platform is presently available for Classes 9 to 12 and also provides a comprehensive overview of Class 10 performance since 2007 and Class 12 performance since 2009 till the current academic session. The portal only showcases information related to the CBSE board at present.
