- The Human Resources Development Ministry has launched ‘Operation Digital Board’ (ODB). The programme aims at converting a class room into a digital class room, in addition, to availability of e-resources at any time and at any place to students.
- The digital board will be introduced all over the country in government and government aided schools from class 9 onwards. Digital boards will also be introduced in higher education institutions.
- The programme will also help in provisioning of personalised adaptive learning. It will further aid in Intelligent Tutoring by exploiting emerging technologies like Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence & Data Analytics.
- The digital boards will be introduced from the academic year 2019-20. University Grants Commission (UGC)- the apex body for
coordination, determination and maintenance of standards of higher education – will be the implementing agency for ODB in Higher Educational Institutions.
