All digital learning resources and software resources will conform to the National Policy on Open Standards of the Government of India (http://egovstandards.gov.in).
  • Given the diversity of the country’s educational, linguistic and social situation, there exists a need for a wide variety of digital content and resources for different subjects, curriculum, ages/grade levels and languages. Unicode fonts will be used to ensure universal access, compatibility and amenability to transliteration and translation.

DEVELOPMENT OF CONTENT

The development of digital learning resources in the form of e-books, animations, lessons, exercises, interactive games, models and simulations, videos, presentation slides, plain text materials, graphics, or any combinations of the above, will be encouraged. Use of digital resouces should be harmonised with the requirements of the curriculum and supplement it.
  • The proposed web based digital repositories will host a variety of digital content, appropriate to the needs of different levels of students and teachers.
  • Raw content resources like photographs, video, audio and animations will be remodelled to develop multimedia learning objects.
  • Teachers and students will be encouraged to develop digital learning resources collaboratively and contribute to the proposed digital repositories, collectively owning it.
  • Textbooks, teachers’/students’ guides, question banks, FAQs, laboratory manuals, problem sets, activities, notes and a variety of other print based learning resources available in the public domain will be digitised and deployed on the national and state level web based digital repositories.
  • Educational standards and instructional designs for a variety of digital content and resources will be widely disseminated to enable development of quality digital content, including interactive multimedia materials and learning objects.
