Kalinga TV will telecast e-learning class for half an hour every day. The students are requested to avail the benefits while staying at home, advised Dr. Samanta.
Remarkably, it is the maiden endeavour of KISS in providing teaching at the doorsteps of the students. Amid Lockdown, how the students of KISS will upkeep pursuing education, Dr. Samanta had devised a plan to this effect. After classes on Whatsapp, KISS takes up a novel approach to teaching in times of pandemic, recognizing the digital divide and network issues in rural areas. This innovative idea, a Kalinga TV initiative, is a way to reach the students and provide one hour classes on television everyday beginning from today. We believe there should be no discontinuation in the academic calendar, even in testing times like the pandemic, said Dr. Samanta
Now onwards whatever will be studied in e-learning classes, study materials will be provided to them accordingly. Especially 10th standard students will derive a lot of benefits by means of these e–learning classes. Not only KISS, but also students from every nook and cranny of Odisha will get benefitted. Students pursuing their study in different Odia Medium Schools of Odisha also can encash such opportunities. This program will be telecasted on Kalinga TV from Monday onwards.
