India Launches Inclusive Learning Platform

The Ministry of Education and the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT-Kanpur) have launched SATHEE (Self-Assessment Test and Help for Entrance Exams), an online education platform to empower millions of students nationwide who are preparing for competitive exams.

It provides a comprehensive suite of resources tailored for NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) and JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) aspirants. This initiative represents a notable achievement in the implementation of the National Education Policy 2020 and the pursuit of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 4. The platform stands out with its multilingual support, offering content in English, Hindi, and a range of Indian regional languages, ensuring that no student is hindered by language barriers, and fostering an inclusive environment.

The SATHEE resources include video lectures delivered by renowned faculty members from IITs and the Indian Institutes of Science (IISc). The platform is also kicking off its first 45-day JEE crash course, designed to offer intensive preparation and revision within a brief period. It is ideal for students looking for quick revisions before exams.

The platform features a series of rigorous, expert-designed learning modules, complemented by innovative elements such as an interactive chatbot. To further enrich the learning experience, there will be regular doubt-clearing sessions facilitated by students from IITs and the All-India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS). Anticipating an enthusiastic reception, the SATHEE platform is poised to attract a substantial response from students nationwide.

“The outreach of SATHEE marks a significant step towards enhancing accessibility to education in India. This platform opens up new avenues for students preparing for competitive exams, offering quality resources and support. Our goal is to ensure that every student, irrespective of their location or financial situation, has the opportunity to excel in their academic pursuits. SATHEE is a testament to our commitment to educational equity and excellence,” stated S Ganesh, Officiating Director, IIT-Kanpur.

SATHEE goes beyond being a mere learning platform; it signifies a shift toward providing equal educational opportunities for all. It addresses the issue of competitive exam preparation being monopolised by private classes, which may be unaffordable or difficult to access for many due to distance. The platform serves as a positive prospect for millions of students, especially those in rural areas and financially restricted environments.

During the pandemic, e-learning websites and portals played a vital role in the education sector, and the government aims to leverage the digital advantages in the new normal. Last year, the IIT-Madras’ National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) introduced an online portal to help students prepare for the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE).

As OpenGov Asia reported, the NPTEL GATE portal is freely accessible to all students, with CSR support from one of the country’s leading travel technology organisations. NPTEL is a joint initiative of the IITs and IISc, a provider of free online certification courses. It has the world’s largest online repository of courses in basic sciences, engineering, and selected humanities and social sciences subjects.

Through the portal, NPTEL has leveraged its existing course contents on engineering and science domains from over 2,400 course portfolios, to provide video solutions, practice tests, and online assistance based on the GATE syllabus. Nearly one million students took the GATE exams this year and the portal made the preparation journey easier for the aspirants. Top of Form
