Ministry of Education asks States to encourage use of online coaching platform SATHEE

In News
  • With the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT)  only 45 days away, officials at the Ministry of Education (MoE) said they would write to all States to encourage aspirants to utilise the newly launched portal for exam preparation — SATHEE (Self Assessment Test and Help for Entrance Exams)
SATHEE
  • SATHEE is an open learning platform available to students at no cost.
  • SATHEE has launched a 45-day crash course for aspirants to test their level of preparation.
  • SATHEE hosts live and recorded lectures, expertly designed curriculum, and doubt-clearing sessions [for students] to brush up their knowledge.
  • About 5,000 students from the Kendriya Vidyalayas, Navodaya Vidyalayas, and schools under the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) have registered on the platform so far.
  • The goal is to reach 1,00,000 students.
  • The portal uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to interact with students, and can be customised to each student’s pace of learning.
  • SATHEE’s integrated AI chatbot helps students align their learning needs.
  • The initiative is in line with the National Education Policy, with the goal to provide inclusive, high quality education even to remote parts of the country.
  • Pan India mock tests tests are held every weekend, with the same look and feel adopted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) for conducting the JEE.
  • This will entail subject-wise tests, questions not attempted marked in a certain colour, detailed performance analysis, and so on.
  • SATHEE hosts lectures and video content prepared by Professors and students of the IITs, and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
  • Currently, digital learning material is available on the SATHEE portal in four languages — English, Hindi, Odia, and Telugu.
  • By January or February, the portal intends to provide lectures and live courses on all National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) syllabus topics.
  • This will involve refresher courses for Class 11 and [Class] 12 students, and later for Class 9 and [Class] 10 students. This is because Classes 9 and 10’s topics form the foundational basis for the higher classes.
  • The MoE is also studying analytics data released by the NTA to check which States have lower number of students enrolling for entrance tests.
  •  We are involving SATHEE mitras (friends) to increase rural coverage of students appearing for entrance tests, including the JEE and NEET.
