Nagaland government to provide pen drives to students

As online classes become essential now, several state governments are providing them in various ways. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the schools across the country have been closed since March.

In this scenario, some states are telecasting lessons on Doordarshan and other channels. The Nagaland government came up with a new idea to provide education to rural students.

The government is mulling to distribute pen drives to students of classes 5 to 12. These pen drives are loaded with study material to help students.

Students in rural areas are facing network issues which hinder their online education. Hence, the Nagaland government decided to distribute pen drives to students for smooth and hassle-free education.


So far, two phases of online education have been finished in Nagaland. The third phase of the online classes will start from August 18.

The pen drives will contain the syllabi that have been covered in these two phases to make sure that students would not miss any learning material.

Principal Director of School Education Shanavas C said that while the online education for students in urban areas is smooth, it is difficult for students in rural areas due to network issues and poor connectivity problems.

Hence, the government decided to provide pen drives to those students.

Besides, the teachers are asked to assist the students in rural areas in their online education and solve problems related to access to online learning.

Private schools can also get these pen drives from the department by placing orders on the portal: www.dosenl.in. However, they will have to pay an amount ranging between ₹350 and ₹850 based on the syllabus covered in the drive.

As per the directions of the department, the teachers will have to distribute notes and worksheets regularly to the students of lower classes so that there would not be any hurdle in their education.
