Online education afoot in community schools

PANCHTHAR: The Panchthar District Education Office has initiated efforts to introduce online teaching and learning in community schools of the district.

A three-member taskforce, headed by District Education Officer Gyanmani Nepal, has been formed to carry out ground works in this project.

The committee has decided to initiate the physical infrastructure development works by taking stock of the status of internet connectivity and electricity access in the district.

The programme will begin from a school, based in Phidim, with the target to roll out the initiative in all the schools of the district within three months of this educational year. It is to be implemented with the economic and technical assistance of E-Quality Foundation of the US.
