Humanities DTH channel launched at EFLU

A direct to home (DTH) channel related to ‘humanities’ (language and literature) was launched at the English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU), Hyderabad, by Vice Chancellor Sunaina Singh.

This was part of the 32 DTH channels announced by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) in the arena of higher education. Of these, 10 DTH channels were given to Consortium for Educational Communication (CEC), New Delhi, an apex body for 21 Educational Multimedia Research Centres (EMMRC) in the country.

CEC on its own was operating three DTH channels, while seven DTH channels were allotted to the best of seven EMMRCs in the country.

The EMMRC – EFLU Hyderabad has a rich repository of nearly 3,000 high quality educational programmes, and every passing year another 500 programmes are added to its library. The centre has nearly 1,000 programmes in the area of humanities, language and literature.

To begin with, the centre would be using taped material for telecast, while fresh content would be generated from the EMMRC studios. The 21 EMMRCs would be sharing the programmes for transmission on DTH channels.

This would sustain the channel with never-ending fresh content of higher educational programmes.
