National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) to run 3 DTH education channels

Advertisement

Patna: With a view to popularising open school education via visual media, the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) will run three direct-to-home (DTH) television channels under the HRD ministry’s ‘Swayam Prabha’, which is likely to be launched by PM Narendra Modi on August 15.

The three channels will deal with secondary school, senior secondary school and teacher training respectively. “The contents for these channels have been specially designed and will include all learning material we provide to students,” NIOS regional director (Patna) Sanjay Kumar Sinha said.

Sinha said some channels have been showing educational programmes but they generally don’t include complete syllabus and are limited to an hour or two. “Our channels will telecast quality educational programmes 24X7 and there will be fresh content for at least four hours every day,” he said, adding that the channels will be free of cost.

About two lakh students in Bihar are currently associated with various study and examination programmes of NIOS through its 500 and odd study centres in the state.

NIOS regional centre’s initiative of training untrained health workers (read quacks) has also found many takers in Bihar. “Around 30,000 semi or untrained health workers were registered in the first batch and their exams will be held in the coming months. Besides theory and practical study material for them, we are also planning to rope in some noted city doctors to be part of our television and radio programmes to teach them regularly,” he said, adding that other states had also written to him asking for implementation of this training programme there.

These channels will also have special sign-language programmes for differently-abled students. The videos will include alphabets, basic words, adjectives, things around us etc by sign language tutors.

It may be mentioned that under the Massive Open Online Courses platform ‘Swayam Prabha’, the NCERT will run a channel on Class IX and X school education while the CBSE will run four channels: physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology – all for Class XI and XII students and IGNOU will also run four channels on different subjects.
