E learning infrastructure l.jpg
E-learning Sales and Marketing!-infrastructure

e-learning content system(ECS)

- digital course content creation

- archival and distribution

– both online and offline (open distributed learning repository)

- transmitted by VSAT to 42 distance e-learning class rooms in Indian institutions

  • The curriculum is being delivered from the ECS at Amrita University

  • The system uses customized software ‘Trainnet’ (developed by ISRO)course delivery management. Trainnet software offers facilities like power point integration, course configuration, student registration, white board , separate window for interaction etc

  • ECS would be equipped with the advanced equipments for content creation, editing, storage and archival for localisation.

  • The classroom at the hub shall be equipped with all necessary equipments for telecast of the lecture live to all centers.

Creation of contents and distribution in Open Source - three approaches:

  •  Courses, workshops or similar useful events conducted in the recent past or being conducted now and recorded at KReSIT, DEP studio

  • short-term courses, workshops and tutorials for students and teachers will be conducted, which would be recorded, edited and released  

  • Search for similar contents, if already available under Open Source will be carried out and the permission will be sought, if needed to copy and enhance this material, and release under e-outreach.
