These supplies are being ready by skilled professors from reputed establishments of the nation and it is going to be out there in main regional languages. “The Union ministry of education had announced the availability of study material on this portal in total 10 languages, including Odia. Now it is ascertained that during the translation of study material by the AICTE, the Odia language has been dropped which cannot be accepted,” mentioned Behera.
He mentioned the Centre has recognised Odia language as classical language. Even Odisha is now one of the main states within the nation in phrases of IT. “Decision of the ministry to drop the Odia language courses from massive open online courses (MOOCs) scheme is unfortunate and unjust. Centre’s move has deprived lakhs of Odia students to learn from Swayam online platform,” he added.
Behera has appealed the Centre for reconsideration of the choice of the ministry to incorporate Odia as language for the academic platform Swayam for the sake of Odia college students.
