The Union Ministry of Human Resource and Development (HRD) on 5 September 2017 launched DIKSHA Portal (diksha.gov.in) for providing digital platform to teachers for making their lifestyle more digital.
DIKSHA will enable, accelerate and amplify solutions in the realm of teacher education.
Highlights of DIKSHA Portal
• DIKSHA is built considering the whole life cycle of teacher beginning from the time when they enrol in Teacher Education Institutes (TEIs) to the time they retire as teachers.
• States, government bodies and even private organisations can integrate DIKSHA into their respective teacher initiatives based on their goals, needs and capabilities.
• DIKSHA platform can be used to create in-class resources, teacher training content, assessment aids, teacher profile, news and announcement and teacher community.
• These features have been added in the portal after consultations with multiple state governments, NGOs and more than 30 public and private organisations, who have contributed to DIKSHA.
