Re: [MTC Global] Education to go digital with 'Swayam'

Dear All,
Digital India looks forward to this great initiative indeed to pave the way for inclusive education for a vast country like ours with diverse training needs of huge number of cohorts and regional clusters of 15 to 35 age group groping for skill-enhancement for their livelihood. 
  • Every Higher-Education institute needs to have it's Inhouse-Mobile-Swayam-Platform using Distributed Ledger Technology DLT ( blockchain ) for executing Teaching-Learning-Contract with the students registered with them.
  • Rapid and innovative content-development (over and above the Free Sessions) and its content-ownership issues will be monitored and addressed with time-stamped academic administration through DLT.

Warm regards,

G.S.Autee

Swayama (MOOC) is a call of the day. It will help remove all barriers and divides. My take  is:
  1. Reduce university/institute program Semester teaching load to 15-18 hours/week from 30-35hours/week.This will help reduce the cost of educating.
  2. With normal fees students can enroll in institute and can appear for exam.
  3. Traditional universities are  now required to function as digital/virtual universities.
  4. For professional programs students may be allowed for practical during vacation period.

Subject: [MTC Global] Education to go digital with 'Swayam'
NEW DELHI: India will enter a new era in higher education on Sunday with the launch of hundreds of courses that will be delivered through DTH channels, tablets and mobiles.

These courses have been developed by over 1,000 expert faculty members from premier institutions like IITs, JNU, Delhi University and Anna University.

A 'Made in India' IT platform - MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses), or Swayam - will host courses taught in classrooms from Class IX to postgraduation, which can be accessed by anyone, anywhere at any time. All the courses are interactive and available free of cost. Students from various recognised institutes in India will be able to earn credits on clearing these online courses.

President Pranab Mukherjee will launch Swayam, Swayam Prabha - the platform of 32 DTH channels to deliver the courses - and National Academic Depository (NAD) which will facilitate online verification of certificates.

Swayam aims at taking the best teaching-learning resources to all, bridge the digital divide for students who have hitherto remained untouched by the digital revolution and have not been able to join the mainstream of the knowledge economy.

The courses hosted on Swayam will be in four quadrants -video lecture, specially prepared reading material that can be downloaded/printed, self-assessment tests through tests and quizzes and an online discussion forum for clearing doubts.

The scheduled courses include engineering, management, science, humanities, language and mathematics. There are also self-paced courses like critical thinking and contemporary themes on Indian economy.


'Swayam Prabha' is conceived as a group of 32 DTH channels devoted to telecasting high-quality educational programmes on 24X7 basis using GSAT-15 satellite. Every day, there will be new content for at least four hours which would be repeated five more times in a day.
