Mahendragarh: Tablets, which were used to support students in their studies during the Corona epidemic, have now become a problem for the education department. The Ministry of Education is updating this to prevent misuse of the tablet and ban desired websites on it. The company’s new software (new version) is updated on the department’s tablets. Not all tablets can be updated directly.
We would like to inform you that during the Corona epidemic, all educational institutions were closed by the government, which affected the education of students in government schools. In such a situation, the state government distributed tablets for online studies to the students so that their studies are not disrupted. But instead of learning on tablets, students misused them. The department installed a lot of security software to prevent its misuse, but the students started misusing all these security software by installing Chinese software on the tablet for Rs 200 to Rs 300. Now this version will not be updated on the tablets whose software was cracked by the students. There is no version update and download option for such tablets. Due to manipulation of the software, these tablets have exceeded the company’s warranty period. In such a case, this tablet will be sent to the company’s care center for updating.
48 percent of tablets have been updated
So far, the Ministry of Education has only been able to update 48 percent of tablets to its level. The remaining new versions will not be updated. After not downloading and updating, the third and final media is just Care Center. The entire software of the tablet is changed. The Samsung company tablets that the students received run versions OS-11 and OS-12. Now the new OS 13 version is here. Currently, this version OS-13 is being updated by the company for free. So far, around 48 percent of students have had their tablets updated. This time, a total of 13,650 students in grades 10 to 12 in the district were provided with tablets. Of these, no SIM cards were found for a thousand tablets. So far, about six thousand tablets have been updated and about 6,500 tablets are still pending.
The tablets are sent to the care center
The district’s e-learning nodal officer, Dr. MR Yadav said that many students had cracked the cyber lock of the education department’s tablet software. After that, there is no longer any option to update the new version of the software. In such a case, these tablets will be sent to the company’s care center. The resulting costs are borne by the department.
