DD Roshini, an exclusive channel for students launched

This digital channel enables a two-way student-teacher interaction as programmes are broadcast through live-streaming with the help of satellites.

From now on, the students studying in Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) schools will receive special lessons broadcast through an exclusive television channel — DD Roshini.

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy launched the new digital channel, a joint initiative of the state broadcaster, Doordarshan and the BBMP.

This digital channel enables a two-way student-teacher interaction as programmes are broadcast through live-streaming with the help of satellites.

BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said, “DD Roshini has designed programmes from nursery to college level. The programmes will be aired from 6 am to 10 pm.”

He also said, until 5 pm, the channel will telecast programmes that will help students to prepare well for examinations. After 5 pm, a repeat of the day's programming will be shown so that it helps those who missed the day's shows.

S G Raveendra, special commissioner, education, BBMP said, “As of now, this facility is available only in schools. We will eventually make these programmes available on tablets and regular television so that the students can watch them sitting in their homes. Once that is done, there will be no need to have internet access.”

Raveendra also said that the British Council has been helping the BBMP to design the programmes. “Some of the tough subjects are being simplified by the experts at the British Council. If students need clarifications, they can seek expert-help through Skype calls or video conferences,” he said.

The BBMP has plans to design elaborate programming for students at the SSLC and pre-university levels. Another 11 channels will be launched by April 2019, wherein a channel will be designated to each grade. "The main focus of the project is to help students understand the syllabus easily," said a senior BBMP official.
