Content Submission Guideline:
The Portal www.htedu.maharashtra.gov.in has a space for intellectuals/professors to interact, discuss and reflect; to create and share resources.
Our vision and policy is to give content in their mother tongues.
The three key content areas on the portal are Teacher Communities, Students Communities and Resources.
Before you submit any content, please read our Content Policy.
Resources are broadly classified into two: Classroom Resources that teachers can use to teach in class, and Teacher Development Resources that help teachers grow professionally. Resources can be in various formats—textual, audio, video etc.
Resources published on the portal may be contextual; however issues raised and dissected should have an enduring value and the potential to serve as source material for future users.
Resources can be submitted in the following way:
Resources can be submitted through Web Master mail
(Send them as attached files; do not paste the whole text into the body of the email. Type your resources on word processing software like Microsoft Word or Open Office Writer and attach the files. Include your phone number in the email, so that we can contact you for any urgent clarifications).
Abbreviations and acronyms
Do not write abbreviations alone when they are appearing for the first time in a resource. Write the expanded form and put the abbreviation in brackets. In all further instances you may use the abbreviation alone. E.g. This text book has been prepared according to the norms of National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005. The National Policy on Education (NPE) has recommended that the national education system will be based on NCF.
Pictures, Photos, Illustrations
Graphic elements like pictures, photos and illustrations sometimes add great value to resources. Ensure that your graphics has minimum 300 dpi resolution, and not more than 600 dpi.
Intellectual Honesty: Copyrights, Plagiarism, Acknowledgements
We respect intellectual honesty. Do not submit anything that is copyrighted to another person or organization. Do not plagiarise. Unauthorized copying from any source without acknowledging the original source is plagiarism—even if it is from the notes of your colleagues or students.
Whenever you quote from somebody else’s work, please do acknowledge it properly. If you are creating something based on somebody else’s original ideas, acknowledge it. If you are quoting from any published works—books, cinema, websites etc.—acknowledge it. Cite the relevant references and sources at the end of the article, in their order of occurrence.
