E-World is believed to be improved students' learning abilities and the teaching skills of teachers. With e-World in place, the school will be provided with digital content, special webpages for both parents and children and SMS assistance.

As part of the project computers, smart boards, projectors and speakers have been installed in classrooms. There is an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software also came in place, which will help teachers to improve their teaching and manage their volume of work effectively. the e-initiatives launched recently are working smoothly.

In addition to lower the workload of teachers, the new system will also enable parents to keep a tab on their children's education. A big advantage for the parents is to get to know the performance of their children in real-time by logging into the school server and availing current status.

New learning platform is also environmental friendly as it helps to reduce the use of paper. School authorities are planning to upload circulars onto the school website instead of carrying a printed circular to each and every classroom. The school having a student strength of 9000 and teaching and non-teaching staff together comes around 400.

Another important feature of this e-initiative is that website will enable students to access worksheets, question papers, study materials, and other classroom tools from the comfort of their homes. In order to smoothen communications between parents and the school, the new system offers SMS assistance. The school is also coordinating with various subject content providers to make learning more digital.

Digital rich content will be delivered through the school server and which will offer support in making teaching more lively, interactive and technically driven. Teachers will be provided with desktops and laptops for a more effective pedagogy in the classrooms.
