Bhubaneswar: The State Directorate of Higher Secondary Education has decided to start online classes for the Plus 2 first-year students and hence, directed all junior colleges to submit their list of interested and experienced teachers in digital and online mode of teaching before May 21.
As per reports, basing on the success of the video classes organised during the first wave of COVID-19 last year, the department has decided to resume the same setup this year too.
Where, only the second-year students were provided online/video classes last year, the Directorate has decided to launch the same service this year for the first-year students as well.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Directorate of Higher Secondary Education had come up with the same concept in May 2020 during the COVID19 pandemic when all the schools and colleges were shut down by the government to check the spread of the virus.
The department had asked the principals of all government and non-government aided higher secondary schools to submit concept-wise course materials to be used for online classes of Class-XII students.
It had also requested principals of all junior colleges to discuss with faculties of all streams- Arts, Science and Commerce and find out if quality digital learning materials/videos are available with them for different subjects of Plus-2 as prescribed by the CHSE syllabus.
