subject :Launch of a New Academic Website (www.cbseacademic.in)
The Central Board of Secondary Education is in the midst of innovation in
disseminating its policies and implementing new programmes. The CBSE
website (www.cbse.nic.in) has become an important source for Information
and Communication over the years.
During the past years CBSE’s scope of academic activities has increased
manifold and owing to a constant demand from various stakeholders within India
and abroad CBSE is launching an Academic website (www.cbseacademic.in).
This website will provide insight not only into the academic activities of the
Board but also objectives, policy initiatives, programs, information, materials
and activities which otherwise might not be easily accessible to all.
Special emphasis is been given to make the portal easy to navigate through
the site-links that are clearly marked and are self explanatory making
navigation easy and `user –friendly’.
The site opens to a home page or main page that acts as a
starting point from which the user can base his/her search. The home page
contains direct links to most of the other sections of the web site. These
direct links are in the form of table of contents, an index, a site map, a
pull-down menu and also through a specifically designed and easy to identify set
of buttons. There are certain sections like `Mentoring’ and
`Accreditation’ that open to a sub-domain with a look of an independent

vii) School Sanitation.
The Academic website will be a source for the latest as well as old
publications including textbooks, support materials, CBSE Quarterly
Journal CENBOSEC, Annual report and even a sub section where one can get
to know the list of latest publications with their price and availability.
Moreover, it will also be a source of information about the ongoing
programmes of the Board, with special focus on Training, Innovation and
Research, in the form of Formative Assessment workshops, Effective
Leadership Management Programmes for Principals and other such events. A regular
update will be the key feature of such trainings and workshops.
Similarly there will be a Health and Wellness Tab covering information
on various programmes being held by the Board under the aegis of Health and
Wellness Clubs. It will also carry announcements, information and updates
of endeavours like the `First International Life Skills, School Health &
Wellbeing Summit- 2012’ that will be held from 19-21 April, 2012 at India
Islamic Cultural Centre, New Delhi. The summit will be launched by the
Honourable Minister of HRM on 19th April, 2012. This unique programme will
provide an eclectic platform where budding children from schools across the
country will get an opportunity to interact with each other to promote
creativity and awareness in health, wellbeing, friendship and peace,
amongst the various cultural backdrops of the nation.
This is the first time that the Board is also involving students and peer
educators to showcase their delivery of co-scholastic skills by coming
together in groups of 50 schools. It will be fun for all the CBSE Schools
to access the information on the click of a button and make maximum use of the
The CBSE Results link on the website would announce the CBSE results
and the students and the parents need not look for other links and sites.
Similarly, the CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test) Tab will be a one
stop destination for information on question papers of CTET for the previous
year, CTET bulletin and schedule for examination, results of CTET 2012 and
various advertisement notices. It also has details on structure and
content and syllabus of CTET exam, important information at a glance etc.
CBSE Academic is an evolving unit that disseminates information through
regular circulars. In order to make these circulars easily
accessible the Compendium in two volumes has been put together which
brings together all circulars of importance from 8.3.2005 to 31.12.2011. Under
Circulars compilation of circulars in the year 2012 have also been
uploaded along with archive section covering all the old circulars.
The site is a sincere effort from the CBSE Academic and Training Unit and
aesthetic and visual appeal, navigation, and accessibility are the
major focus points that have been kept in mind while designing and
developing this website.
We will develop more interfaces to the website in the near future and would look
forward to provide regular updates and information to you today and
