Kochi: A groundbreaking Education Content Creation Hub has commenced operations in the state, bringing significant advancements to the field of teaching.
This comprehensive platform serves as a one-stop destination, offering all the necessary resources for creating engaging and informative educational content. The inaugural content creation hub was launched on Monday at KITE's Regional Resource Center in Edappally, Ernakulam, and the government has plans to establish additional hubs throughout the state.
The Hub is a testament to the transformative power of technology in teaching and learning, according to KITE CEO K Anvar Sadath. Even a mobile phone can revolutionise teaching, he said.
Swapna J Nair, KITE district coordinator, shared that the concept of the Content Creation Hub originated during the Covid lockdown period. Many teachers were creating content during that time, but there was a lack of professional touch. For instance, a poem that was once recited in class can now be visualised or performed through the content hub. Swapna explained that this approach makes learning more captivating and helps students better comprehend the subject matter.
K Manoj Kumar, senior creative editor, emphasised that the Kite Lens Studio is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities to support innovative and forward-thinking teachers in bringing their ideas to life. These facilities include 4K video recording capabilities, a sound-treated shooting floor, cyclorama, and a suite for sound and visual mixing, and graphic editing.
