New Delhi: The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is planning to go digital to teach the students. The Council has started preparing the syllabus for the students of 9th and 10th class on CD. This would help students to study on computer.

According to NCERT, the work is almost complete and the CDs would soon be dispatched to the principals of all the government schools in the country including Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya and Kendriya Vidyalaya.

Joint Director of the NCERT, BK Tripathi, said that in this age of computers children refrain themselves from reading books. Today, the Computer interests young ones more than books hence we are providing the complete course on CD.

The course would be divided section wise to make the students easily study the subjects. Currently, this CD would be in English and Hindi languages. Once the plan is successful, the CD would also be made available in other regional languages, Tripathi added.
