KOKRAJHAR, Sept 11: To cope up with the global changing scerio on development of technologies for teaching and learning methods and to improve the pass percentage of the Bodo medium students of the SEBA course, the Department of Biotechnology of Bodoland University (BU) released Dikshya, an audio-visual e-learning material on General Science for Bodo medium students of Class X of SEBA course at Kokrajhar recently.

The Director of Education, BTC, Rabi Shankar Borgayary and Professor Hemanta Kumar Baruah, Vice-Chancellor of Bodoland University, formally released the DVDs of Dikshya at the auditorium hall of Basic Training Centre, Kokrajhar.

The Executive Member of Sports and Youth Welfare, BTC, Doneswar Goyary, Principal Secretary Biren Ch.

Speaking on the occasion, Borgayary praised Dr. Jatin Sharma, the coorditor-cum-director of Dikshya for conceptualizing such an innovative idea for the vercular medium students and working tirelessly for the production. At the same time, he also called upon the students and teachers to take the advantage of the material.

Talking to media persons, Dr Sharma, who is also an Associate Professor and former Dean, Faculty for Science and Technology of Bodoland University, said that the global usage of certain languages help students to get excellent study materials developed by best academic institutions of the world. However, for vercular medium students of India in general and Assam in particular, such materials are scanty. Again, creation of digitized audio-visual class material may help to overcome peculiar situation like teacher shortage in rural vercular schools. It will also minimize time required to teach the subjects and will maximize the utilization of digitized academic products through desktop computers, laptops or smart phones, he said.
