To help the students in the COVID-19 crisis, a state school teacher from the Uri border area in the Baramulla district of northern Kashmir has created a school website and an Android application.
Aijaz Sheikh comes from the village of Uri in Chandanwari and is a lecturer in IT. He created a website for his school, Government Higher Secondary Nambla Uri.
The most important aspect is that Sheikh used the limited 2G internet services in Kashmir to create a website and later an Android application to make it easier for the students.
“It should have only taken 15 days, but it took me about 3 months to make it to improve the students at my school and the staff there,” Aijaz Sheikh told ANI.
“I decided, along with other teachers, to work on our school website, after which we discussed this with our higher authorities. When the COVID-19 classes started, we also planned how we would start online classes for the students, ”he added.
He said that while the website was created a few months ago, the Android application was only released and downloaded 8-10 days ago by the students who benefit from it.
He also said that students are not required to visit us from Monday to Saturday.
“The students in the lower grades are made familiar with information technology at an early stage. The school website is called http://www.ghssnambla.in and the Android application is called https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ghss nambla.ourapp, ”Sheikh said.
“Our website has many sections, including the approval section. Students can now apply for admission online. We also have a results section on the website, ”he added.
