Following the Coronavirus outbreak and numerous failed attempts to move education online, Nepal Telecom launched its Happy Learning Data Pack and eShiksha Learning Pack to provide cheaper and more accessible mobile data connections to students. Previously, students had a hard time keeping up with online learning — frequent electricity cuts throughout the country and slow internet service providers made online classes next to impossible for many. To tackle this problem, cell service providers like NTC started offering cheap alternatives, like the NTC eLearning data pack, to students with the help of aid from the government.
Although only certain services like Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams can be used with this data pack, the NTC eLearning data pack is much cheaper than ordinary data packs. This has been a great boost to students and many that had to struggle before can enjoy cheap eLearning data packs from the comfort of their own rooms.
In this article, we will be going in detail about how you can subscribe to the NTC eLearning packs by yourself, without the help of your college or institution. This removes much of the difficulty that students and faculty had to deal with to buy eLearning datapacks, and now students can get one with ease if they need to. Let’s get started!
Data Pack Options and Price:
Students get to subscribe to one of two data options: 24 GB data or 35 data. They cost रू 315 and रू 500 respectively and include most popular learning platforms like Zoom, Midas (Zoom), Google Meets and Microsoft Teams.
If you are the student of a registered educational institution, you can get access to the eLearning packs by following the given simple steps:
- Go to the NTC Student KYC Form on your desktop or mobile browser
- Fill up all necessary details like Name, Mobile Number(NTC only), Citizenship or Passport Number (use your Parent’s or Guardian’s if you don’t have one), Name of College/School, Level, Student ID number, and finally a clear picture of your student ID card.
- You will now need to make a Self-care account for NTC. You will need to enter a password for your Sefe-care account, after which you will get an OTP(One Time Password) will be sent to your given mobile number.
- Now select and pay for any data pack to your liking. Alternatively, you can also call *1441# on your phone.
