The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) is going to run live counseling sessions on free-to-air DTH channels for secondary and senior secondary levels respectively in order to overcome the loss of academic time of the students. To achieve this, NIOS has made innovations to telecast the Live session through Skype on Swayam Prabha DTH Channel namely Panini, Channel Sharda and Channel Kishore Manch. The step has been taken in the view of nationwide lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to save the academic time of the students.
The lesson based educational programs can be accessed by the learners on the above stated DTH Channels as well as NIOS YouTube channel. The learners will be able to watch 6 hours of recorded broadcast followed by 6 hours of live session. During the live telecast, the learners will also be allowed to pose questions to the subject experts via calling in and through the Student Portal of NIOS website. The above stated channels will be available through all DTH service providers.
To provide quality education to the learners, the content is also being made available online through ‘SWAYAM’ MOOC platform of MHRD for various subjects of class 9th to 12th. Apart from Self Learning Material, the SWAYAM portal also provides video lectures and facilities of self-assessment to the learners.
