Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) has launched online classes through YouTube for students of Class 10 from 25th March 2020, to compensate for the losses of students due to lock down for Covid-19 or CoronaVirus.
Lessons of subjects – English, Mathematics, and Science would be uploaded through YouTube videos every day in Assamese, English, and Bodo languages.“As staying at homes while maintaining social distancing is paramount at this hour of crisis, we have taken this initiative to keep the students of Class X engaged during this lockdown period. The digital materials of the current curriculum are being uploaded on YouTube by SIQUES EDUAID LLP in association with the SEBA,” Board chairman RC Jain told media persons.
The students would get intimated about the video upload through SMSes on their mobile numbers registered in the Board database.
SEBA video contents would be available for repeat playing and would be archived with the Board for a lifetime. In the comment section, the students can ask their questions and get their queries answered by the teachers.
For Class X, initially, the curriculum of February and March would be covered through the videos. The SEBA would take a call as the situation proceeds.
“We also wanted to start a similar initiatives for classes VI, VII, VIII and IX. But since the movement of teachers is not allowed, it is difficult to make large-scale videos. For Class X videos, teachers have been kept in separate isolated locations,” the SEBA chairman added.
The Board has sought permission from Deputy Commissioners for allowing some special movement of teachers for the benefit of lakhs of students.
