Implementation of Offline and Online Smart Education System in Shree Rudrayanee Secondary School, Khokana

In the era of digital transformation, RCMEL found it important to go hand in hand with the requirement of the aforementioned school for a rich digital content ingested system as well as online teaching education application. A virtual Skype Meeting was conducted on June 24, 2020 (Asad 10, 2077), over an online Skype Meeting, with the RCMEL team members as well as the principal and other school members of Shree Rudrayanee Secondary School, Khokhana. The school principal highlighted that the digital contents could substitute the unavailability of books with some underprivileged school children and the online learning application would help in Covid-19 like lockdown situations. However, the school was inadequate with the main logistics like wifi enabled desktops/laptops for the digital classroom. Hence, this issue was also attended.
