DoHE also launched three path-breaking programs on the day, said sources in the State Government.
 
The first MoU was signed between DoHE and TCIL of the Department of Telecommunication under the Union Ministry of Communication to have Smart and Virtual Classrooms in 101 Degree Colleges - 51 Government and 50 Aided Colleges, a press release of the DoHE said.
 
This MoU will bring about digitization in imparting education to students in the most advanced manner.  Each Smart Classroom will have Desktop, Interactive White Board, Short Throw-Projector, Portable Visualiser, White Board, Green Board, Wireless Microphone and Camera.
 
This will expose the students of Odisha to a system of modern and quality education which will be faster, practical-based with Audio-visual impact. The students of these degree colleges can learn through audio-visual learning mode.
 
The teachers and the students in the classroom can interact with the students of other degree colleges with the help of Smart Classroom. Through the advanced features, the entire classroom teaching can be recorded and can be used for conducting classes for other students.
 
The second MOU between the Department of Higher Education and Dhyeya Educational Services Pvt Ltd was signed to provide a comprehensive, quality-based coaching to Civil Service aspirants of the State.
 
The initiative of the Higher Education Department will not only boost the success rate of the students in the State in terms of Civil Service examinations but also give a chance to students to think and pursue Civil Service as a career.
 
The government will provide qualitative civil services coaching to Odia students at Bhubaneswar, as most of them are unable to afford coaching in metro cities like Delhi and Hyderabad.
 
The government has come up with an ambitious scheme by offering 75% fee waiver to students selected under the scheme, and 100% fee waiver to students with family income up to Rs. 2 lakh per annum.
 
Higher Education Minister Anant Das launched Standard Uniform Syllabi for undergraduate students, keeping in view the international standard syllabus, which will enable the students for employment and research.
 
To make the project a grand success, a committee was formed under the Higher Education Department, comprising the Vice Chairperson of Odisha State Higher Education Council and experienced educationists of the universities. The Standard Unified Syllabi will be implemented after they are passed through the academic council.
 
Higher Education Additional Secretary Parthasarathy Mishra welcomed the guests and the educationists present in the meeting and explained the utility of this endeavour of the HE Department. Additional Secretary of the department Krupasindhu Mishra presented the vote of thanks.
