Content available offline for example, a pdf file available in your local system can be uploaded on DIKSHA. For more details on uploading content, created offline, refer Uploading Content

Resources are the simplest/smallest unit of content that can be created by any user on DIKSHA using the inbuilt content editor. The various categories of resources that can be created on DIKSHA include:

  • Experiment
  • Learn
  • Play
  • Practice
  • Read
  • Teach
  • Test

Each of these categories corresponds to the learning process/methodology that is deployed to teach a particular piece of content. For example, a tutor creates an activity and the intent is to educate the learner about a concept through a game. The resource category in this case is, Play. Similarly, a tutor creates a story to enhance the reading skills of the learner, the story falls under the category of Read.
