Imphal,July 18: In an effort to improve the quality of the online classes, the Moodle Learning Management System for the Government and Government Aided colleges of Manipur was formally launched in Imphal on Saturday.
Moodle Learning Management System is a unique online education system of the latest version which is simpler than other systems of learning. It is said to be one of the most popular learning management systems. This will help in improving the quality of the online classes for the colleges as the class notes can be created by the individual teachers.
Manipur Education Minister S Rajen Singh along with Commissioner (Higher and Technical Education) M Harekrishna, Director (Education-U) Dr Rangitabali Waikhom, Vice Chancellors Dr Sanatombi (Manipur University), Prof Rajmohon (Dhanamanjuri University) and others attended the launching ceremony. Speaking at the launching ceremony held at the Conference Hall of the Directorate of Education (U), Minister Rajen said that the new initiative will help the college students of the state during this Covid pandemic hour.
Stating that education is a sector which we all need to promote and boost up with priority, he said that Education at school level is seen as more focussed in comparison with higher education. There are chances of losing the generation if the education system fails in spite of taking up various forms of development projects, he said. So the government tries its best to make things better with the cooperation and suggestions shared by the public to promote education in the state.
Appealing to all sections particularly to the government employees, he expressed the need for a collective effort for a good government and good service to the people instead of encouraging the obstructions and agitations against the development policies. On the shortage of staff in government colleges, Rajen said that the government will be conducting recruitment drives very soon to fill up the vacancies in the state.
According to official sources, the Moodle Learning Management System will be introduced across 45 government colleges including 39 government colleges and six aided colleges in the state. Don Bosco College Maram in Senapati district bordering Nagaland becomes the first college in the state to have introduced the Moodle Learning Management System.
