Digitalise campuses for higher visions

The Committee on implementation of the new reservation policy in higher educational institutions has set to be an emulative role model for campuses of higher education.

It reiterated on campuses going digital as the way ahead to meet the challenges posed by the age of networked intelligence. Interactive learning with computers, had literally changed the learning paradigm from linear to hypermedia learning, from instruction to construction and discovery, teacher-centric to student-centric. Accordingly mind frame of the learning community should venture into broader horizons. The national project for technology-enhanced learning (NP-TEL), was implemented jointly by the seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the Bangalore-based Indian Institute of Science (IISc.). Funded by the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development, the programme is geared to enhance the quality of engineering education by developing over 300 curriculum-based video and web courses across the country.
