Registration for Faculty Workshop on NPTEL Online Courses, Feb 16, IIT Madras
As some of you may be aware, NPTEL has recently launched an online course program. These online courses contain a series of about 40 lectures in selected core engineering subjects. For this semester, we have started with courses on Digital System Design and Basic Electrical Circuits mainly for EEE and ECE students. Please see http://nptelonlinecourses.iitm.ac.in for more details.
NPTEL is happy to invite colleges and universities to partner with us in this online course program for the benefit of their students. To partner with NPTEL, each college/university needs to identify one/two mentor faculty,per course, who will guide students who register for the online course.
For the registered students, the online course will be a complete learning experience with live lectures, assignments and exams. At the end of the course, students will be given a certificate with their course grades from the Centre for Continuing Education (CCE), IIT Madras. For this purpose, the concerned college/university will have to enter into an MoU with NPTEL and CCE, IIT Madras.
For their efforts, mentors will be paid a suitable honorarium and receive a certificate of appreciation (from CCE, IIT Madras) for their mentorship in the NPTEL online course program.
To provide more information about this new initiative and partnership, NPTEL is conducting a workshop for faculty who are interested in becoming mentors for online courses. The details of the workshop are as follows:
