Facebook-like Education Website Soon in Rajasthan

Rajasthan is soon going to launch a website for students on the lines of Facebook. It will be a social networking site that will also help brush up a youngster's academic knowledge.The idea is to utilise the popularity of social networking sites among students. The government portal will give tips to students on subjects like physics, chemistry and mathematics. Experts will be roped in to answer the academic queries students post on it.

Students will be able to open up their individual accounts, add friends, upload photographs, play games and interact among themselves just like they do on Facebook. A key point is the feature in which there will be subject-specific links on the home page. There will also be e-books, objective questions and coaching material related to each subject. The development of the portal is in the final phase, he said.
