A four-member team of officials recently visited Amaravathi to find out more about the online platform. The MHRD will now be launching the National Teacher Platform on September 5, 2017.
The online portal is a public domain that consists of eight types of contents for chapters from Classes I – X. Training classes for teachers will also be launched via the APeKX. Every student who registers on to the public domain is handed a username and password. After logging in, these students can get their questions answered and download case-studies. Teachers’ queries are also answered on the platform wherein teaching methods and content can also be shared.
Content is scrutinised before it’s uploaded. Subject experts will be working together on the joining process, content verification, creation and more.
