Madhya Pradesh (MP) government will soon provide virtual class facility in all the government schools. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced this while interacting with around 16,000 school children at 400 centers across the state through video conferencing.

The virtual classroom will allow students to communicate, interact, and view presentations or videos online. The government believes that the students will learn and observe things with a different and unique perspective once this facility is provided to them.

The step has been taken by the government after Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched 'Digital India' week. It is expected that around 2,000 schools of the state will get this facility.

Along with the virtual classroom facility, the government is also planning to increase the number of seats for girls in existing girl schools. If all goes well, online coaching classes will also be introduced.
