One can find a detailed alternative academic calendar here.
The calendar guides teachers on the use of various technological and social media tools. It further guides teachers to use SMS on mobile phones or voice call facilities for students devoid of the Internet or may not be able to use different social media tools.
“This Calendar contains detailed guidelines for teachers on the use of technology & social media tools to impart education while the students are at home,” said Mr Pokhriyal in his tweet.
