NPTEL has been offering self-study courses across engineering, humanities and science streams for more than a decade. These are available at: https://onlinecourses.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 form the IITs! These are available at: https://onlinecourses.nptel.ac.in
SRITW had setup SRITW-NPTEL Local chapter on October 2018. The main objective of this SRITW-NPTE Local Chapter is to create awareness and enable students to obtain certification programme and make employable or pursue a suitable higher education.
To take this initiative forward and to encourage more students across colleges to participate in this initiative, we are setting up SWAYAM-NPTEL chapter in colleges (with the approval of the management) which will be under the headship of a faculty member of the college, who would be our Single Point of Contact (SPOC). We will keep the SPOC updated about all the latest NPTEL initiatives and give him information which he can disseminate among the students. The SPOC can identify suitable mentors for various courses, who can ensure that students are active and submitting their assignments on time.
Ranjith Kumar M, Assistant Professor, Department of CSE, SRITW had identified as Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for this chapter.
