Posted On: 16 APR 2020 10:02PM by PIB Delhi

India's Public Broadcaster has been helping students with their studies amidst ongoing lockdown. In collaboration with various State Government institutions, Doordarshan and All India Radio are broadcasting virtual classes and other educational content through their regional channels across the country on TV, Radio and YouTube.

In the absence of school classes, these virtual classes are helping Lakhs of students, especially the 10th and 12th standard students in preparation for their board and competitive examinations.  

Content

The virtual learning through DD and AIR include Curriculum based classes for Primary, Middle and High School level students. Secondary School Leaving Certificate subjects and model question papers for 10th standard students are also being made available in some states. Many of these classes also help students prepare for their Engineering and Medical Entrance Examinations.
