Kerala, October 30, 2016: The IT@School Project of the Kerala government will introduce a revamped SchoolWiki to foster a culture of collaborative content deployment in 15,000 schools on November 1, the Kerala Formation Day.

SchoolWiki, which was first launched in 2009 on the lines of Wikipedia, had gone into oblivion two years later without any updates.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

“This prompted IT@School to revive the portal with much-needed modifications, amply supported by Wikipedia members. Teachers and students were given specific training for using SchoolWiki and to identify and assign district level admins for data accuracy and modifications,” IT@School Project Executive Director K. Anvar Sadath said.

The revamped portal, www.schoolwiki.in, is in Malayalam and features content collection jointly undertaken by the students, teachers, alumni, and public.

The schools would be able to key-in and update their basic details such as infrastructure data, renowned alumni, school websites, school map, blogs, various clubs and forums, class magazines, supporting images and videos.

SchoolWiki has been prepared using Wikimedia Foundation’s MediaWiki software and has been designed in such a way that schools can register into the portal using their school codes and upload their contents.

New Delhi, September 25, 2017: The youth wing of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came out to protest against the University and former vice president Hamid Ansari who lately attended an event in Kozhikode held by Delhi Institute of objective studies.
The event was co-organised by National Women’s Front (NWF), the women’s wing of the radical Islamic outfit Popular Front of India to mark the international conference on “the role of women to make a humane society”. It has also been alleged that an Islamic fundamentalist organization, Popular Front of India (PFI) was also part of the organizing committee.
According to the reports, the criminal of radical outfit PFI was accused of cutting the hands of Professor Joseph for being offensive to the Islamic Prophet Mohammad. It has also been accused of accusing National Investigative Agency over controversial ‘Love Jihad’ cases.
The university however claim that they have received letters from certain organizations, though not being part of the event but were collaborating in it.
BJP now demand an apology from the former vice president for attending the event that was organized by the organization who has also been responsible for recruiting youngsters for the Islamic state.
The question arises what prompted the Vice President of India for 10 years to attend an event organized by a radical Islamic people of Popular Front of India?
Is he being supportive of their agenda? Or is Hamid Ansari a thankless Muslim Indian?
