Delhi CM Kejriwal launches virtual school

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched the Delhi Model Virtual School, which he said was India’s first, and said it will bring “revolutionary changes” in the field of education not only in the national capital but across the country.

The school will be for classes IX to XII and will be affiliated to the Delhi Board of School Education.

The platform was created by two globally recognised organisations, Google and Schoolnet India. Virtual school teachers have received special training to conduct online classes.

The platform will also provide students access to a huge digital library, and the content will available 24×7. He said that apart from regular online classes, students will also be provided coaching for competitive exams, such as JEE and NEET, in classes 11 and 12.

Specialists from various sectors will be engaged. Recordings of every class will also be uploaded on the website, so if any student misses it, they can watch the recording. Students will also be provided skill-based training for professional courses so they can do part-time jobs and continue their studies.
