HED: Global educational resources now a click away

National Edu News

The National Digital Library of India (NDLI), a web portal that will provide access to digital educational materials to all citizens of the country, is a single-window platform, integrating several national and international libraries in it.

 

Initiated by the Ministry of Human Resource Development under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) and developed by IIT Kharagpur, the project seeks to develop a “framework of virtual repository of learning resources” and universalise access to learning.

 


The portal, which will help democratise learning, will assist users to learn from global best practices and will also enable researchers to carry out multidisciplinary research with ease and greater access to worldwide resources in scores of languages.

                                                                                             

Key highlights: 



  • Study materials ranging from primary to post-graduate levels. 
  • Contents from domains, such as technology, science, humanities, and agriculture, among others. 
  • More than 60 types of learning resources, including textbooks, articles, videos, audio books, lectures, simulations, fiction, and others accessible to users. 
  • Over 17 million resources in more than 70 languages.
