Concepts Behind Vision 20-20:

As a quick beginning we will start with the subjects listed below offering tutorials and studies via the internet.

Some of these subjects are already being offered online free of charge at various web addresses. Initially by providing links to such web addresses through our site, we can get the ball rolling while we complete the entire curriculum recognized by the educational institutions universally. In regard to lessons pertaining to World Religions, the reading texts and required reading may be selected from Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Christianity, Judaism, Zoroastrian and Islam as well as all other religions as the administrators find appropriate. This way a person can understand not just Hinduism, but other major religions as well. Additional subjects/languages will be added as we progress, or we locate other competent resources & volunteers.

 

GRADES:

The computer learning program for each subject will be divided by four levels of credentials. Tests for each level will be provided. One can progress to the next level only after successful score of 75% at a previous level. Secured tests can be developed, and exam takers will need proper identification as well as video proctoring. Details could be developed by an NGO-India in collaboration with a governmental authority and other teaching institutions for recognition.

 

  1. Preliminary (Prarambhik)
  2. Entrance (Pravesh)
  3. Acquaintance (Parichaya)
  4. Graduate (Kovid)
