TEAM PROFILE

ACHIEVEMENTS OF CTOR GROUP

What is CTOR?

It is a group of self motivated govt. teachers of Rajasthan giving honorary off duty services with a noble cause of strengthening ICT in Education. It is mentored by Shree Bhaskar A. Sawant, IAS, Hon’ble Director of Secondary Education during the period from 2009 to 2011. So far the group has contributed to the department in the following ways.

Any application developed by any of the members of this group is always tested and supported by all the members. That is why we give credit to the team and not to any individual teacher. It is helping the students, the teachers and the administrators both at school level and higher level.

Helping the Management and Examination

  1. Developed the Result Computation Application in 2009.

It is an application developed in Micro-soft Excel 2007 in such a way that the class-teacher is expected to feed the students’ details and the marks obtained in all tests and exams. in all the subjects and there ends the responsibility of the teachers. The result-workbook calculates the mark sheet in different ways, such as totals, percentages, grades, results applying all the conditions as per the departmental norms and gives a ready to print statement of marks, progress reports, supplementary result sheet, related graphs and all such documents as required by the department. It was initiated by a single teacher and when ready presented before the Director and fortunately accepted immediately and made mandatory for all schools and is popularly known as RESULT SOFTWARE. It is this application which has lead to the formation of CTOR group which now has members and contribution from teachers not only of Rajasthan but also from other states of India.

  1. Developed a website

This website is by teachers and for teachers and students. We do not even accept advertisements. We fund it from our own pockets.

  1. Developed the Result Summary Application in 2011.
  2. This was such an online dynamic application with a data-base stored on the website of
  3. Developed an excel application e-Scholar Register in 2011.

It is a very useful excel workbook meant for the head of the institution of any school. The students’ record is fed into this workbook at the time of admission and the entire data will be available through out the year. It can be filtered on any of the given fields. It serves the purpose of data delivery to the department within minutes. It also generates computerised Transfer Certificates of students. It gives information at fingertips. But Shala Darpan, an all comprehensive  and more useful program has proved to be a better option for this application.

  1. IICT-Instant Information Collection Technique Working continuously towards the implementation of IICT (A step towards paperless office)

This is a form developed in google docs or using Adobe Acrobat Pro Extended Any school or teacher may fill in this form and submit it using his/her mail id. It is an excellent way to collect information from the field in minutes. It generates all kinds of analytical reports and graphs. It has been tested and appreciated by the department but never implemented seriously though it is totally free and highly reliable.

  1. Developed a Bulletin Board.

All the circulars delivered by the govt. from time to time are available under this tab of the website so as to reduce the time and the burden of stationery and postage. This bulletin board is presently being used only by the DEO Ajmer 1 and DD Ajmer. They never send any circular to any school, instead they send it to CTOR group and ask them to upload it to the site. All schools of Ajmer Mandal and particualry Ajmer district have developed a habit of checking the bulletin board every morning and downloading the circulars and doing the needful.

  1. Income Tax Calculation

It is a micro embedded application in excel where a tax payer needs to complete his profile by filling his posting and basic pay details. It generates GA 55, form no 16, Tax Calculation Docs and all docs required for Tax Payment. It is popular among teachers as well as the employees of police department.

The school just need to  prepare the profile of the school, select the head-wise bills, enter the amount. Head-wise budget control and monthly expenditure. The Entire bill registered in well maintained.

  1. Produced a good number of  Screen Cast Videos.
