India Report Digital Education June 2020 PDF
DIKSHA1 is the national platform for school education available for all states and the central government for grades 1 to 12 and was launched in September 2017. DIKSHA can be accessed through a web-portal and mobile application. DIKSHA provides access to a large number of curriculum-linked e-content through several use cases and solutions such as QR coded Energized Textbooks (ETBs), courses for teachers, quizzes and others. As of July 2020, it is estimated that over 60 crore ETBs are being printed this year in India by 35 states and Union Territories, with more than 30 crore content plays and 200 crore page hits already on DIKSHA.
As part of PM eVidya announced under the Atma Nirbhar Bharat programme, DIKSHA is the ‘one nation; one digital platform’ for school education in India. DIKSHA is being transformed into a platform for diverse and rich curriculum linked e-content requirements of learners and teachers for all states/UTs accessible across digital devices (laptop/mobile/desktop/tablets, TV and radio) in order to have coherence of access and learning experience.
At the same time, DIKSHA is designed to inherently support states/UTs to exercise autonomy, independence and choice to craft and run learning programs to suit their needs and achieve their goals, by using solutions, tools and data on the platform.
In April, 2020 VidyaDaan was launched as a national content contribution program that leverages the DIKSHA platform and tools to seek and allow contribution/donation of e-learning resources for school education by educational bodies, private bodies, and individual experts. Further details of DIKSHA are provided later in this report.
