Itanagar, Jan 21 (PTI) The Arunachal Pradesh
government has decided to install Very Small Aperture
Terminals (VSAT) in select government schools for facilitating
online education.

As a pilot project, more than 50 VSATs with a capacity
of connecting over 100 government schools will be installed,
an official said.

State Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar held a video
conference with deputy commissioners and deputy directors of
school education on Thursday and asked them to create a
dedicated classroom in the schools using available
inventories.

The top official directed the deputy commissioners and
DDSEs to extend logistical support for commissioning of the
VSATs on or before February 18.

“The VSAT technology will enable a two-way virtual
communication between educators and learners. It will enhance
the quality of education and help students especially in areas
where they are facing shortage of subject teachers,” the chief
secretary said.

VSATs are small, software-driven earth stations used
for reliable transmission of data, video, or voice via
satellite.

To impart learning through VSAT, one has to set up the
VSAT system which includes learning centres, Hub Earth
Station, a studio for teachers to deliver classes from,
servers for data and dish antenna above classrooms for
reception.

The chief secretary said, as of now 300 government
primary schools have been identified as activity and learning
centres for children between 3 and 6 years as per the New
Education Policy 2020. PTI UPL
