Devise and guide reforms that will transformIndia into a strong and vibrant knowledgeeconomy in coming years (all parts of India, thatis)Focus areas of interest for the projectin several phases Higher Education: Professional Education Distance EducationContinuous Learning 22. DISTANCE EDUCATION Clear and easily documented need: 1,400,000engineering seats; 50000 reasonable ones;demand increasing exponentially! Teacher-student ratio around 1:100 for teacherswith post-graduate M. S. /M. Tech. qualification 23. DISTANCE EDUCATION India has no choice: even to maintain the currentlevels a new major university needed everyweek! Massive online education is an importantemerging market and therefore a businessopportunity. 24. NPTEL AN OPPORTUNITY Technology already available and will onlyimprove. Communications band-width andcomputer power per unit cost will continue toincrease. NPTEL offers an opportunity to provide reach aswell as improvement in quality of the professionalsemerging from Universities 25. NPTEL AN OPPORTUNITY Offers opportunities for cross-disciplinarylearning independent of time, geography andsocial needs for anyone. Professionals can update themselves whilebeing on the job 26. NPTEL AN OPPORTUNITY Technology and reach open up new challengesOpportunities created by Google, Facebook,YouTube and the Internet extended in thesphere of education and social learning. Credible partnerships between Academia andthe Industry can emerge 27. NPTEL AN OPPORTUNITY Professional training and skill building can be effected through learning from NPTEL NPTEL can provide the certified edupedia for thorough mapping of courses along specific threads E.g. Google map for routes (Point A to Point B) 28. Strategies for effective e-learning Continued access, easy and just-in-time Set up social, peer-to-peer and faculty assisted networksand study groups Encourage interactions and dialogues among learners Collect continuous, course-specific feedback Devise strategies for incorporating user feedback in thedevelopment process Bring in partners from industry and researchorganizations Continuously upgrade the programme contents and movedownward towards school education Setup online and offline exams and certification as valueadd-on, to enhance employability in core industries 29. NPTEL from 2007access, from 2011-Socialnetwork Course contents to be peer- and user reviewed from time-to-time before being uploaded on the website User feedback to be incorporated at regular intervals A social network site ( to provide users forum and peer-to-peer and faculty- student interactions online on course contents 30. Accessing NPTEL Distribution of courses through Videos Enabling colleges to create their intranetsites Providing mirror site options to partners Running awareness workshops for collegesand students through agencies like Classleand Bodhbridge AICTE inducing colleges to obtain and useNPTEL contents freely 31. Accessing NPTEL Running contests for students through Classle Colleges to nominate students as ambassadorsto NPTEL and students interacting with IITfaculty directly Encouraging college and University faculty tobe collaborators and also as SMEs in coursesin which they are also experts Responding quickly to student and teacherqueries 32. Technology Enhanced LearningPromote critical thinkingVisualization and visualizability of conceptsDemonstration and hands-on experienceIntegration of teaching and learning in synchronization with the environment of the child/student/adult/all-time learnersMass education and lack of physical infrastructure and teachersBuilding competitiveness, and think out-of-the-box at an early age.Building a Nation to its fullest capacity a nation as large as India, with one sixth of the worlds populationSolve all problems in India and solutions for everyone else also emerge! 33.
