In a significant stride towards modernizing education, the Higher Education Department in the state has announced a groundbreaking initiative to provide e-books and e-library facilities to students in 92 government colleges. With an allocated budget of around Rs 3.5 crore, this move is poised to transform the traditional learning landscape and bring digital resources to the fingertips of students.

The integration of smart classes in 85 out of 172 government colleges has already been a noteworthy achievement facilitated through the Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) and other funding sources. The government is currently investing Rs 10 crore in developing smart classes in an additional 58 government colleges. Simultaneously, the implementation of e-library and e-books in 92 government colleges is another stride towards comprehensive digital education.

Government colleges participating in this initiative have sanctioned funds ranging from Rs 2 to 5 lakh per college to facilitate the setup of e-books and e-library facilities. Prof. Brahmadev, Director of Higher Education, highlighted the meticulous selection process for the 92 colleges, with the proposal successfully securing government approval and budget allocation for the current financial year.

Furthermore, the Higher Education Department is channeling efforts into establishing e-content studios at the Directorate of Education level. The objective is to ensure widespread access to e-content facilities, prioritizing the diverse educational needs of students across the state.

In a parallel development geared towards supporting teachers, the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) has crafted dictionaries in four major regional dialects—Awadhi, Braj, Bundeli, and Bhojpuri—alongside the Hindi language. These dictionaries, encompassing over 33 thousand words, are poised to significantly aid teachers in enhancing the teaching and learning experience, especially when faced with linguistic diversity.

As these initiatives unfold, the state is gearing up to embrace the new session with a robust digital infrastructure, fostering an environment conducive to innovative and accessible education for all.
