The state government on Tuesday asked all schools and colleges to start online teaching and learning by registering with the free social initiative and startup CR School in view of the prevailing situation arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The CR School is a platform for all schools to be available online for interactive e-learning, started by Chritopher Rani, CEO and founder of CR Projects, with an aim to bridge any type of physical boundaries brought about by external circumstances that could hinder the growth and development of students at large.
A government statement issued here informed that that the Directore of School Education and Literacy and the Director of Higher and Technical Education, A Ch Marak has advised schools, colleges, teachers and students to participate and register with the CR School.
It said that Marak is committed to the academic welfare of the students and is keen to mitigate the anxiety of the students, parents, and schools.
According to the statement, a lot of queries have been raised by stakeholders regarding the academic future of the students in view of the prevailing extraordinary circumstances of the worldwide spread of COVID-19.
Marak advises all schools to take this reformative step and receive full access to important features like seamless online classes, interactive communications between teachers and students, updated class lessons, personal evaluations, prometric tests, on-the-go access to study materials and downloadable content.
Though the present set of circumstances is not within the control of the masses yet CR School has come forward as a beam of hope at the end of the tunnel for schools, colleges, teachers, and students alike.
The technical team of CR Projects along with the Education Department is working constantly behind the scenes to take care of the academic future of its students and is looking forward to more schools joining in, the statement further said.
For more information schools that are interested may please contact the toll free number of CR School – 1800-572-0907.
It may be mentioned here that so far 15 schools from Shillong and other parts of the state have registered with the CR School to ensure students do not miss out on their studies.
Meanwhile, the state government on Monday has further extended the closure of schools and other educational institutions till April 30.
