Keeping in view the diverse needs of learners, now use of eContent has become an essential component of the teaching and learning processes. Impact of COVID-19 in the education sector has shown a major shift to the development of digital content in teaching-learning procedures, wherein the platform of DIKSHA has played a crucial role.
