New Delhi, December 10, 2015: NIIT.tv – a disruptive innovation by NIIT, today announced a significant initiative to help school students succeed in their Class 10th & 12th CBSE board exams. Titled, Board Exam Preparatory Classes, these Fast Track Refresher Courses are designed to help prepare students score higher grades in their CBSE Board exams. The courses will be made available on www.niit.tv for free from 10th December onwards.
NIIT Ltd., a global leader in skills and talent development, launched NIIT.tv in October this year as a significant digital learning initiative to bring skilling from NIIT classrooms to every digitally connected Indian, for free, at any time and place of their choice.
This initiative from NIIT.tv, extends the unique technological platform to enable students get that extra confidence boost to excel in their board exams. A carefully curated program will be delivered live by expert teachers on NIIT.tv. Every care has been taken to not overload students, but instead help them recap and refresh what they have learnt while addressing doubts that remain. In fact special sessions dedicated to only clearing doubts have also been planned. The students will also be able to view their sessions on demand as per their convenience. Two rounds of mock exams will also be organized on the NIIT.tv platform in the months of January and February 2016.
Preparatory classes on NIIT.tv are scheduled for Maths, Science, and English for Class 10th; Maths, Physics, Chemistry for Class 12th Science Stream and Accounting, Economics, Business Studies for Class 12th Commerce Stream. Live sessions will be held between 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day. Sessions will be conducted over the Synchronous Learning Technology platform from NIIT.tv studios.
Speaking on the launch of Board Exam preparatory classes from NIIT.tv, Udai Singh, Chief Strategy Officer, NIIT Ltd., said, "Technology can play a key role in making quality education and learning available to millions of students across the country. Through this initiative NIIT.tv will create a more level playing field for school students preparing for their board exams across the country. We hope that a large number of students will take advantage of this breakthrough offering from NIIT."
Board Exam Preparatory Classes from NIIT.tv offers a very structured approach to preparation for the boards. These preparatory classes are based on the CBSE Exam pattern and focus on how to perform well in the exams and improve grades. The objective is not to teach them the full syllabus but prepare them to face the exam well through these classes.
Over the last 34 years NIIT has contributed extensively to the IT sector by training 35 million people in IT and other disciplines. As a socially responsible corporate citizen, NIIT with the launch of NIIT.tv is now committing to extend that experience and expertise to service the needs of India in many other sectors, across the entire social spectrum.
NIIT will also encourage and recognize its students and socially minded citizens who volunteer their personal time and effort to support new learners – especially from the under-privileged sections of society. Through this collaborative effort, the company expects a lot more local language content to become available, which currently is in very short supply.
