New Delhi, Aug 7: Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will launch a Disha mobile app tomorrow, which can be used to learn about computers and Internet.
The minister, who will felicitate 10 Dalit women who have got training under the Digital Saksharta Abhiyan in Bodh Gaya (Bihar) tomorrow, will also launch a Disha handbook that has pictographic lessons on computers etc.
The mobile app is prepared to spread digital literacy through self-learning modules. The app is free and is available on Google Play Store. The Disha handbook is prepared by the Common Service Centres (CSCs) for the purpose of digital literacy.
