National Mission on Education Through ICT
Empowerment of Students and Teachers
through Synchronous & Asynchronous Instruction
Every Indian learner deserves to be given a chance to have the highest quality education. Scarcity of trained teachers critically hinders this national desire. This project envisions empowerment of teachers, through workshops conducted for thousands of teachers at one go, using a unique blend of technology and an innovative pedagogy. Thousands have experienced the effectiveness of this approach, and of the resulting open source contents.
New technologies and tools are developed to further enhance the educational experience. Application development and content porting to Aakash tablet is being ramped up.
Work is done in synergetic collaboration with sister projects at IIT Bombay, such as eLearning Animation, Spoken tutorials, Virtual labs, and FOSSEE.
