Seeking to further computer literacy among school and college students, the state government has asked the Odisha Knowledge Corporation (OKCL) to design special courses for them.

Specific arrangements for teaching, learning, examination and award of co-branded certificates on IT courses will be developed through joint efforts of Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) and Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha and OKCL,” said a senior official in the IT department.
“It has also been decided that the premier universities of the state will be accepted as equity partners in OKCL. This apart, the university digitization and CHSE computerization will be done through OKCL,” the official said.
The corporation has envisaged future projects like secured remote paper distribution process for examination in colleges to avoid leakage of question papers and practice set of question papers for engineering and medical students. The meeting also directed OKCL to devise user friendly modules for senior citizens so as to enable them to have contact with family members staying away from them and to facilitate their day to day transactions.
