Project Description

According to the bank website, "the TA will support building institutional capacity of DoPT to operationalize Integrated Government Online Training (iGOT) scheme by developing an intelligent LMS which would offer about 10 e-learning modules to cover about 2,000 civil servants spread across the country on a pilot basis. The proposed LMS will have a multi device access capability (desktop, laptop, tablet and smart phone) to enable on site and on time learning by the civil servants from their duty station without a need to travel to a training center. This approach will enable DoPT to enhance coverage of training programs to a large number of civil servants with lesser resources in terms of cost and time."
