Video conferencing to connect 20k colleges

New Delhi, Mar 3, 2013, PTI: 1:40 IST
About 20,000 colleges across the country will be soon connected through a video conferencing software which will enable students to attend lectures of well-known faculties through online classes.

The decision by the Centre was followed by a recent meeting between Higher Education Secretary Ashok Thakur and 60 vice-chancellors of colleges and universities from across the country to acquaint them about the software “A-view.”

The software has been developed by Amrita University under the National Mission on Education through an Information and communication technology programme. The
e-learning platform will help in conducting live distance education classes by enabling trainers and teachers to reach out to multiple remote classes and participants using the Internet.

It will also address the shortage of highly qualified and experienced teachers at institutes by providing all students and teachers access to the best teachers and trainers. The software will provide a platform for social collaboration among teachers and students using information and communication technology, officials in the ministry said.
