With schools shutdown due to Covid-19 pandemic, a government school teacher from the border area of Uri in Baramulla district of North Kashmir, in a bid to help students, has created a school website as well as an Android application.
Hailing from Chandanwari village of Uri, Aijaz Sheikh, who is a lecturer in IT, has created a website for his school, Government Higher Secondary Nambla Uri keeping in mind the limited 2G internet services in Kashmir. After the website, he went on to develop an android application to make it easy for the students.
“This should have taken me just 15 days, but it took me around 3 months to get it done for the betterment of the students of my school and the staffers there,” Aijaz Sheikh said.
“I along with other teachers decided to work on our school website following which we discussed it 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 also said that the students are not required to visit the school from Monday to Saturday.
“Our website has a lot of sections including the admission section. Now students can apply for the admission online. We also have a result section on the website,” he added.
