The E-Kalvi program was initially done by the Dr. Ethirveerasingam together with other team of members from the office of the Provincial Director of Education and office of the Planning section of the Ministry of Education. This was to prepare the CDs and distribute to the schools.
Then the Jaffna University Graduate Association Victoria Branch in Australia, picked it up seriously by preparing it with USB using html format, where it was so easy to use. Further there were not only give the USB but also gave related other supportive equipment such as computer/laptops, projector, head phones and projector screen. This helps the students, who were learning in E-Kalvi Centers in few districts, to use it in smooth manner. This E-Kalvi team was headed by the below members as a branch from the Jaffna Graduate Association – Victoria Branch in Australia.
