Apart from this, the Education Officer of Lakshadweep visited the KITE State Office here, after which it was decided to support the students of Lakshadweep by downloading digital content of pre-primary to twelfth standard class on a monthly basis. The initiative will directly benefit 6,420 students from 43 schools located on 10 islands of the archipelago studying in the Kerala state syllabus.


Earlier in 2013, during the initial phase of the high-tech school project in the state, KITE conducted a 10-day specific ICT training for 60 teachers from Lakshadweep at the Ernakulam Regional Resource Center for n0 teachers from Laxmip.

Although more advanced training for these teachers was planned last year, it was not implemented due to the Kovid-1p epidemic, said KITE chief executive K Anwar Sadath.

“KITE is providing necessary assistance to Lakshadweep Education Department for setting up high-tech classrooms at the request,” he said.


Lakshadweep schools have been part of Kerala’s Idushat network since 2005, but over the years, the equipment has become obsolete.

Since last year, with its inclusion in all DTH networks, the Kit Victors Channel is now also available in the Lakshadweep region.

However, due to widespread problems with the availability of channels and Internet connections in many parts of the island, time was needed to make the first Bell digital classes available in an offline mode, which could be offered directly to students.
