Indore: In a bid to crackdown on subpar educational standards prevailing in government and private colleges, the department of higher education (DHE) in Madhya Pradesh has formulated a robust online monitoring system. This move comes as a direct response to concerns over poor student and teacher attendance, as well as deviations from stipulated quality norms in educational institutions across the state.Aiming at improving the attendance of students and teachers in the classes, improving on education quality and administrative tasks, the DHE will commence its inaugural phase on December 11. With an extensive plan spanning four distinct phases, the department plans to continue this online monitoring system as a regular practice. The monthly reports will be tabulated based on the monitoring of all colleges for further action. In the first phase starting on December 11, a total of 10 lead colleges in the state will be monitored online which includes Government Mata Jijabai PG College, Moti Tabela from Indore and Government Kalidas Girls College, Ujjain. Other lead colleges in the list are from Bhopal, Gwalior, Chambal, Narmadapuram, Jabalpur, Sagar, Rewa and Shahdol. The 10 lead colleges will be monitored from the DHE commissioner office in the first phase. The ID and password of the CCTV setup box installed in the colleges have been sought from the colleges. Based on these credentials, the CCTV access will be taken for five major areas including classrooms, principals office, sports ground and administrative office of the college, Dr Dhirendra Shukla, officer on special duty, DHE, MP told TOI. The colleges will be monitored from 10am to 5pm everyday. The monitoring process is designed to evaluate teaching practices, engagement levels, and the overall learning environment within these government colleges. The DHE has communicated detailed directives to all colleges, mandating the establishment of requisite infrastructural arrangements for seamless online monitoring of classroom sessions. In the second phase, the remaining lead colleges in 42 districts will be monitored which will begin from January 1, 2024.
