Details on KSHEC website

The Kerala State Higher Education Council (KSHEC) has exhorted the academic community to utilise online learning digital platforms during the time of lockdown.

Based on a directive by the University Grants Commission (UGC), the council has uploaded the details of various platforms on its website.

These can be accessed by teachers, students and researchers in the universities and colleges to broaden their horizons of learning, sources said.

The digital platforms include the ICT initiatives of the UGC, its inter-university centres, Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) and the Consortium for Educational Communication (CEC).

Some of the portals also enable teachers to register themselves in databases of experts in various domains of study.

The State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) has prepared a set of 10 books to make the summer vacations more interesting for students, a pressnote said.

The books, available on the SCERT website, will be of interest to students, parents, and teachers alike.
