Teachers and institutions can choose to teach their students absolutely free of cost by using this library. They can also teach their students an international syllabus, which can help them keep in sync with global standards.
Learning materials are available for courses like Bachelor of Arts, B.Com, B. Ed and more. Students can also get help on general awareness, entire CBSE content, educational presentations, discussion on social topics and many more. Languages like Sanskrit can also be taught.
