SHILLONG, July 10: In a move to modernise education, the Meghalaya government has announced the integration of quick response (QR) codes into school textbooks. This initiative is aimed at providing students with seamless access to supplementary educational resources.
The integration of QR codes is expected to significantly enhance students’ learning experience by offering instant access to video lessons, solved question papers, and other supplementary materials using smartphones. This innovative approach not only aims to enrich the educational content available to students but also to improve their time management skills.
The inclusion of QR codes in textbooks is a step towards making education more interactive and accessible. By leveraging technology, students can get additional knowledge options that can be accessed anytime, anywhere, officials said.
The initiative has garnered praise from education officials and stakeholders, who see it as a forward-thinking step towards improving student resources and making learning more engaging. The move is part of the state government’s broader efforts to incorporate digital tools into the education system, ensuring that students are well-prepared for the future.

The QR codes provide access to video lessons and solved question papers.
The students need to download an application called DIKSHA to be able to access the QR codes.
