 CBSE's Contribution to Schools and Teachers in Urban and Rural areas - Vidya Daan

CBSE’s initiative Vidya Daan is a program based on the donation of e-content by teachers to synergize countrywide efforts on content development for providing schools and teachers in urban and rural areas with good quality e-content that can be used anytime, anywhere at no cost. Vidya Daan was launched on 12th September 2019 by Hon. Minister of HRD, Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal.

Approximately 6000 content pieces are available on Vidya Daan presently for grades 6th to 10th from CBSE Schools for English, Hindi, Maths, Science, and Social Science subjects. The content can be viewed on www.diksha.gov.in/cbse or DIKSHA App can be downloaded from the Google Play store for the purpose.  

CBSE has now decided to launch Vidya Daan 2.0 with an aim to enable students to better understand and apply their knowledge of the concepts and topics to life experiences and teachers to prepare better and teach better through activity and experiential-based teaching and learning.

CBSE has requested an esteemed panel of schools to express interest by 23.12.2019 for providing sample e-content to improve and/or replace existing e-content with high-quality content on Vidya Daan for Grades- 1st to 12th vide Circular no.

The sample content shared by schools will be reviewed by the Board and if found suitable, CBSE will reach out to select schools for contributing to Vidya Daan 2.0. CBSE will also recognize the effort of schools and teachers contributing to Vidya Daan by giving Certificates/Awards to schools/individual teacher(s) and also weightage to Teacher(s) for national awards such as CBSE teacher awards.

The Board is also reaching out to an esteemed panel of institutes such as IITs, IISERs, IIMs, etc. to support in this ambitious project and to do “Vidyadaan” of the following types of content which will be uploaded on DIKSHA, for the benefit of the larger community of students and teachers.
