HP NEWS SERVICE
Shillong, Sep 14: At a time when the drive to have online classes is clashing head-on with poor internet connectivity in Meghalaya, especially in rural areas, the Sohra and Shillong centres of the Ramakrishna Mission today launched a joint venture to bridge the gap by demonstrating its plan to conduct classes online even in no-internet zones.
The inauguration of HIKAI (Hybrid interactive Knowledge Assimilation Initiative) for Class 1 to 12 was held today at Ramakrishna Mission Secondary School, Sohbar by Sub-Divisional Officer AS Mukhim in the presence of other dignitaries.
Android tablets were distributed among students. The tablets have pre-recorded sessions, combining slides, audio-visuals and animations. They are also able to connect via WiFi when students need to communicate with teachers.
The HIKAI project is free for all MBOSE students, who can register on rkmhihai.online.
For the last three weeks Ramakrishna Mission has been providing online classes for any MBOSE student. Now, with HIKAI, the aim is for these classes to be accessible in the remotest corners of the state where internet availability is a major issue.
“The project has the potential to help lakhs of students across the state,” Ramakrishna Mission said through a press release today.
