We are proud to announce the launch of CLIx Open Educational Resources (OER) website (clixoer.tiss.edu) on 6th December 2019.
Dr. Shalini Bharat, Director, TISS was the one to launch the OER. In a democratic move keeping with the spirit of CLIx, she invited a member of the audience to hit the enter key to launch the website. She lauded the project for focusing on teacher empowerment and providing better learning opportunities for students from the marginalised communities. Mr. Satyajit Salian, Head of Education at Tata Trusts, that has seeded this initiative, congratulated the CLIx team for successfully working towards equity for all children by creating opportunities for active learning through quality intervention.
The CLIx OERs are released under Creative Common licence which anyone can use, remix, modify and adapt. The Website (clixoer.tiss.edu) has over 100 hours of digital resources, interactives and tools for Science, Mathematics and communicative English in Hindi, Telugu and English.
Findings from the CLIx research show significant learning gains in class IX students who used CLIx resources in an ICT Lab facilitated by a teacher who has been a part of the programme for 3 years. The gains were significant for girls and SC-ST where the access to ICT lab enabled increased active learning opportunities and enhanced the quality of learning.
The exhibition held post the launch in the open space on the TISS Campus celebrated open learning, showcased student artefacts from the field and allowed visitors to actively engage with the CLIx modules ask questions of the module designers.
