The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) has invited computer science students and staff from engineering, arts and science colleges to develop e-content for Tamil medium students of standards VI to VIII.

According to Coimbatore Additional Chief Educational Officer (SSA) R. Thiruvalarselvi, a State-wide contest has been announced in which the participants can come out with a content that could replace the books completely for these students.

The emphasis was on providing more visual elements and even audio, if necessary, to make the subjects more attractive for students. The content should be in Tamil unicode ‘alagikural’ font and can include 3D video clippings and internet links.

The first three prize-winning entries would be awarded Rs. 1,000 each while the next four would get Rs.500.

The contest is open for all the five subjects of Tamil, English, Mathematics, Science and Social Science.

All the entries must be submitted in a CD to the Coimbatore Additional Chief Educational Officer (SSA) before January 15.
