About NPTEL Local Chapter

The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) is a project initiated and handled by seven Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Roorkee and Guwahati) and Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The project has been funded by MHRD, Government of India, to develop and promote multimedia and web technology based learning open for all. Currently more than 940 courses are available on web portal http://nptel.ac.in for viewing and downloading.
NPTEL has been offering self-study courses across engineering, humanities and science streams for more than a decade. These are available at:http://nptel.ac.in. From March 2014 NPTEL has been offering online certification for its courses, the highlight being the certification exam through which the student gets an opportunity to earn a certificate from the IITs! These are available at: https://onlinecourses.nptel.ac.in. At the end of the course a certification exam (optional) is held on specific dates at specific centers. Certificate from IIT is awarded to those who register and appear for the examination. These exams have nominal fees with facility of scholarship and partial fee waiver for SC/ST candidates.
We are glad to announce that our institute now also have approved NPTEL local chapter from January 2016 (http://nptel.ac.in/LocalChapter/list_of_colleges.php). This will facilitate our students and faculties to use NPTEL Videos (511) and Web Contents (418) at our campus and also avail the scholarships for certification exams.
This activity at our institute will be under the headship of a faculty member who would be our Single Point of Contact (SPOC). Coordinated by Dr.Vishal Goyal, Associate Professor, Dept. of Computer Science. All are invited to be part of this and get benefited.
