दिनांक 24 फरवरी 2020 को ई-कंटेंट निर्माण और मुक्त शैक्षणिक संसाधनों पर इलाहाबाद विश्वविद्यालय के मानव संसाधन विकास केंद्र द्वारा संचालित सात दिवसीय कोर्स का दूसरा दिन रहा. शहर और देश के विभिन्न कालेजों और विश्वविद्यालयों से आये प्रतिभागियों ने दो सत्र में वक्ताओं का व्याख्यान सुना. प्रथम सत्र में इलाहाबाद विश्वविद्यालय केंद्रीय पुस्तकालय के लाइब्रेरियन डा. बी.के सिंह ने अपना व्याख्यान “मुक्त शैक्षणिक संसाधन” विषय पर दिया. इस विषय पर बोलते हुए उन्होंने पुस्तकालय विज्ञान में मुक्त संसाधनों और श्रोतों के महत्व पर अपने विचार रखे. उन्होंने कहा कि अब ओपन एक्सेस पुस्तकालयों का समय है जहां ज्ञान भौतिक सीमाओं के परे एक मुक्त स्थान में विचरण करता है. कोर्स के दूसरे सत्र में इलाहबाद विश्वविद्यालय के समाजशास्त्र विभाग के प्रोफ़ेसर आशीष सक्सेना ने “सूचना और सम्प्रेषण तकनीक का राष्ट्रीय स्तर पर विकास” विषय पर व्याख्यान दिया. इस व्याख्यान के माध्यम से उन्होंने यह बताया कि नयी तकनीक जितनी लाभकारी होती है उतना ही उसे लेकर सतर्क रहने की भी आवश्यकता है. इस उत्तर आधुनिक युग में सभी मूल्यों को परखा जाना चाहिए. कोई एक मूल्य सर्वोपरि है ऐसा नहीं है. ऑनलाइन कोर्स और ई-कंटेंट विकास के क्षेत्र में भी यह बात समझनी अनिवार्य है.
