In a bid to provide the best developed ed-tech solutions and courses on a single platform, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan recently came up with NEAT 3.0, besides launching regional language textbooks prescribed by AICTE.
Helping students from economically weaker families
NEAT is said to be capable of playing a game-changing role to bridge the digital divide, especially among the students from economically weaker families across the country. It is also set to fulfill the knowledge-based requirements of India in the long run.
Apart from this, it also has 58 global ed-tech startup companies offering 100 courses to enhance learning outcomes.
Skill development and minimization of learning loss
NEAT is being seen as a step in the right direction as it will minimize learning loss with e-content and other resources. The Union Education Minister also encouraged the AICTE to integrate courses available in the NEAT.
A message for ed-tech companies
The NEAT welcomes all the ed-tech companies to work with a collaborative approach to make education accessible and affordable to all sections of the society for equal growth.
A ray of hope for thousands of students
There are over 12 lakh economically unprivileged students that benefited from NEAT, receiving course coupons worth Rs 253 crore. The program is a ray of hope for thousands of students who dream big despite having fewer resources at hand.
