The Sohra and Shillong centres of Ramakrishna Mission in a joint venture successfully demonstrated the technological capability of conducting online classes in a no-internet zone. On 14 September 2020 online academic classes of HIKAI(Hybrid Interactive Knowledge Assimilation Initiative) from classes 1 to 12 were inaugurated at Ramakrishna Mission Secondary School, Sohbar by Bah A S Mukhim, SDO, Sohra Civil Subdivision and other dignitaries. Esteemed guests witnessed the demonstration of the software and part
icipated in the teaching learning process being students themselves. Android tabs were distributed among the students. All the prerecorded sessions were well conceived, designed and presented through the blend of slides, audio-visuals and animations.
Moving away from the popular trend of sending notes and videos over social media platforms, RKM has come up with quality contents and a hybrid platform of their own that enables students to have a two-way communication in realtime and through an Android App even without an active internet connection, with the help of a WiFi zone and a local server.The HIKAI project is free for all the students of MBOSE. They can register at https://rkmhikai.online. The project has the potential of helping lakhs of students across the state.
