Challenges related to Digital/Online Education
- Large number of students are neither having android cell phones nor Laptop/Desktop or Tablets due to financial constraints.
- Ladakh is hilly, sparsely populated and is a far flung area where mobile/internet connectivity is very limited. In order to provide teaching content offline, classroom digital equipment is required wherever mobile or internet connectivity is not available so that contents are provided through pre-loading or through CD or pen drive.
