Centre for Internet & Society

The Centre for Internet & Society's Access to Knowledge team organized a closing ceremony, on December 3, to conclude the three months campus project for Odia Wikisource at Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences, Bhubaneswar.

Students who were part of nine teams led by nine faculty members were assessed based on the team performance and the team led by one of the faculties, Nilima Samant, was awarded as the best performer. Similarly Preetinanda Roy, a faculty member, who also happened to be the project coordinator was awarded as the best performer among all. The institute's CEO Dr. Prasanta Kumar Routray felicitated the awardees and all the faculties and students who took part in the project. Other senior members from Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences management also joined.

Addressing the audience Dr Routray said, "we are extremely thankful to Subhashish and CIS-A2K for this great support. If these students could learn Odia typing in such a short span and digitize 4 books then we should get more valuable content in their native languages digitized."
