Since it recently switched to OCI, DIKSHA has improved its scalability, security, cost-effectiveness, and flexibility to adapt to demand-based capacity, according to the press release. This has allowed it to produce more material and serve more students and teachers as the platform grows.

Indu Kumar, head of department, ICT and Training, Central Institute of Educational Technology (CIET), Ministry of Education, said, “We need to embrace modern tools and technology to make education more easily available and securely accessible to everyone.”

One of India’s largest and most successful Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) initiatives, DIKSHA was created for school education and foundational learning courses. Through the use of the open-source Sunbird platform, created by the EkStep Foundation, DIKSHA assists teachers in promoting inclusive learning for communities that are underprivileged and children with disabilities across the nation.

More than 11,000 contributors’ content is accessed by more than 200 million students and 7 million teachers from public and private institutions on the platform.
