The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), a project funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), provides e-learning through online Web and Video courses in Engineering, Sciences, Technology, Management and Humanities. This is a joint initiative by seven IITs and IISc Bangalore.
The main objective of the NPTEL is to enhance the quality of engineering and science education in the country by developing contents for undergraduate and postgraduate curricula using video and web based courses. These courses cover the syllabi prescribed by universities and approved by AICTE. Course contents will be useful for faculty training and through them improve the quality of students. These courses can also be used by professionals for updating their academic background.
We are happy to announce that now we are LOCAL CHAPTER of NPTEL in association with IIT MADRAS. Local Chapter is an initiative taken by the project NPTEL, to encourage students across the country and ensure that online education reaches everybody.
NPTEL Local Chapter
It is a partnership between the college and NPTEL. To take this initiative forward and to encourage more students across colleges to participate in this initiative, they are setting up NPTEL Local Chapter in colleges (with the approval of the management) which will be under the coordination of a faculty member of the college, who would be Single Point of Contact (SPOC).
NPTEL will keep the SPOC updated about all the latest NPTEL initiatives and give him / her information which he / she can disseminate among the students. He/She can identify suitable mentors for various courses, who can ensure that students are active in a course, are submitting their assignments on time and also clarify the doubts they may have.
