Course Creation


Courses help learners focus their interests and enhance their abilities. On DIKSHA, course creators and course mentors add relevant content to compile a course. A course creator creates multiple units of the course and compiles them as a course. Whereas a course mentor compiles a course using existing content from the portal.
