GOA: Chief minister Pramod Sawant launched the online channel ‘Dishtavo’, on which over 20,000 recorded lectures for students of higher education in the state will be available. Sawant said this makes Goa the first state in India to create such infrastructure for higher education. However, had reported on October 4 that a Goa University study has found that 74% of its masters students experience poor internet speeds, and found this an impediment in accessing online teaching content.
On Monday though, Sawant said that the directorate of higher education (DHE) has plans to create e-mitras to help students overcome the issue of poor internet connectivity. Sawant said that under the programme, colleges would be made to pair a student who has poor network with another student who has good network. The student with good connectivity will ensure that the one paired with him or her is kept updated and keeps pace with online classroom teaching.
