The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown have compelled everyone to spend more time indoors than outdoors. Social gatherings have also drastically reduced. To break the monotony of regular work schedules and to make productive use of time, people have started taking up various online learning classes to build their skill sets and learn something new.
Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan also has been providing online learning opportunities through various initiatives. For this reason, Manthan SVK centres have been transformed into online classrooms. In this regard, Manthan SVK, under its Syahi - Adult Literacy Initiative, organised a 10-day Technical Grooming workshop for people of ages 45 years and above.
The workshop was held from 17 May to 28 May 2021. It received immense enthusiastic participation with over 90 enrollments.The participants were groomed on various topics such as the basics of smartphones and apps like Google Meet, Chrome browser, Gmail, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, DJJS app etc. Topics such as phone settings comprising language, ringtone, alarm etc were taught as well. Basics of photography, video-calling, frame-setting and camera settings were also discussed.
On the concluding day, Sadhvi Deepa Bharti Ji addressed the students and congratulated them for their patience and enthusiasm. She also commended the teachers and volunteers for all their efforts for making the sessions effective and successful. Participants also shared how the sessions were informative and confidence-boosting for them during these trying times.
