In an attempt to bridge the communication gap between the board and students and schools, the Central Board of Secondary Education has launched a new website to highlight academic activities and information that it wants to pass on to the public and schools.
In an open letter to all affiliated schools, CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi announced that a new website (www.cbseacademic.in) has been launched owing to a constant demand from various stakeholders within India and abroad.
Similarly, the CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test) tab will be a one-stop destination for information on question papers of CTET for the previous year, CTET bulletin and schedule for examination, results of CTET 2012 and various advertisement notices. It also has details on structure, content and syllabus of CTET exam, important information at a glance etc.
The new website will provide all necessary information that teachers, students and parents would require. It will include details about the board curriculum, teachers training, textbooks etc, all available at the click of a button.
Joshi adds that the CBSE is in the midst of innovation in disseminating its policies and implementing new programmes but in the past years the board's scope of academic activities has increased manifold due to which the website was being launched.
He described the website as a platform which will provide insight not only into the academic activities but also objectives, policy initiatives, programs, information, materials and activities, which otherwise might not be easily accessible to all.
