New Delhi: The curriculum of Delhi Government schools will now be available online. The education department of the Delhi government will be uploading the curriculum on its online platform, Diksha. It implies that the books on entrepreneurship, happiness, etc. can be accessed by anyone in any part of the country.
The initiative is called Lead. Lead promotes learning through e-resources. The Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia took to Twitter to announce the initiative. He tweeted, “Har Ghar mein Diksha, har ghar mein Shiksha.” This initiative has been taken by the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), Delhi.
