RTI: Portal for knowledge and learning

The Vice President of India Shri M. Hamid Ansari has said that the RTI Act imposes new obligations on all stakeholders. The government is called upon to be more transparent and accountable in decision and policy making, and manage its records better. Addressing at the launch of “RTI Portal developed by Institute of Management in Government (IMG)” at Thiruvananthpuram (Kerala) today, he has said that the civil society is expected to be an informal clearing house for information to help common citizens understand and use this new instrumentality. This makes possible the participation of citizens in governance beyond elections.

Institute of Management in Government (IMG) is the apex training institute of the Government of Kerala. It is situated in the heart of the capital city Thiruvananthapurm and operates from two training campuses, the Barton Hill training complex and the administrative/training complex. Strategically located in the heart of the city, it is at a stones throw from the State Secretariat and Legislative Assembly complex.

The Institute of Management in Government, Thiruvananthapuram was established as an autonomous body under the auspices of the Government of Kerala in 1981 with the objective of developing managerial skills, organisational abilities, leadership qualities and decision making skills among different categories of employees of Government, Private and Public sector.

As part of the RTI Knowledge Portal the Institute has initiated the work of preparing a bi-lingual e-learning module wherein any stakeholder including the government officials and the general public can register and get certified online. Trainers undergoing this course may have to qualify an additional chapter The contents have been organized in user friendly manner and there shall be interim quizzes and tests in each section and the learner can proceed to the subsequent chapter only after scoring 80% or above in each chapter. As part of this we also plan to create video lectures by setting up mechanism for lecture capturing in classroom and then creation and authoring of video lectures with course materials as well as the facility to archive and stream the synchronized videos on demand.
