ePathshala App

The Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry has launched a new mobile application with the concept of “learning on the go”. This app will help students to get access to all the NCERT textbooks. If a student does not possess a particular book, or requires it in the last moment, he/she can use the e-book for the same purpose. As per newspaper reports, parents would wait for the half-yearly or annual exam results to know the progress of their wards. But now through this app, one may check their wards’ progress through the same.

This app is not only for the students but also for the stake holders, teachers and parents as apart from providing all the textbooks of NCERT online which are downloadable on the smart phone, recorded videos of lectures are also available, and parents can check the learning outcomes of the students as well. Even educators can log in to get access to periodicals and teachers too can access teaching instructions.

Available through a especially developed mobile app interface on Android, IOS and windows platforms, E-pathshala is broadly divided into four segments namely, students, teachers, parents and educators. The resources are available in three languages English, Hindi and Urdu.
Principals of various schools have welcomed its launch, but also feel that there are pros and cons for every technical intervention.

The students will get access to the e-books, audio/video tutorials and they can also keep track of the books they accessed, total time spent on a certain subject/ book and can even bookmark the chapters studied. Teachers can download Teaching manuals and curricular resources are also available for the teachers.

The ePathshala app can be downloaded at Google Play and App Store.

Book Highlight



Told in diary form by an irresistible heroine, this playful and perceptive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the May Bird trilogy sparkles with science, myth, magic, and the strange beauty of the everyday marvels we sometimes forget to notice.

Spirited, restless Gracie Lockwood has lived in Cliffden, Maine, her whole life. She’s a typical girl in an atypical world: one where sasquatches helped to win the Civil War, where dragons glide over Route 1 on their way south for the winter (sometimes burning down a T.J. Maxx or an Applebee’s along the way), where giants hide in caves near LA and mermaids hunt along the beaches, and where Dark Clouds come for people when they die.

To Gracie it’s all pretty ho-hum…until a Cloud comes looking for her little brother Sam, turning her small-town life upside down. Determined to protect Sam against all odds, her parents pack the family into a used Winnebago and set out on an epic search for a safe place that most people say doesn’t exist: The Extraordinary World. It’s rumored to lie at the ends of the earth, and no one has ever made it there and lived to tell the tale. To reach it, the Lockwoods will have to learn to believe in each other—and to trust that the world holds more possibilities than they’ve ever imagined.
