The system would provide free productivity tools to simplify and save time with classroom, Gmail, documents besides providing thousands of teacher-approved apps, books

and videos through laptops and tablets.

'A new era of technology has begun in Arunachal Pradesh through which we can connect with advanced nations of the world,' Chief Minister Nabam Tuki said while formally

launching the programme here in presence of Team Google India representatives and officials of the education department.

The new system would be beneficial for those students who could not go to schools so that they could learn from home, said Tuki.

Stating that the new concept would be a flagship programme of the state government, the chief minister exhorted the officials of the education department to work hard to make the programme successful by setting a target.

On November 15 last year, Tuki visited Google headquarters, Mountain View, California, on an invitation by the company for the Google Global Education Symposium on Ministers and held talks with the Google Education team.
