But before that ….a Ten-step plan for growth follows ….

a ten step plan for growth quick summary
Stage-1: Identification of Areas of Development of Web-based Courseware

Stage-2: Identification of Resource Persons

Stage-3: Formation of Subject-Area-Specific Core Groups out of Identified Resource Persons

Stage-4: Formation of Subject-Area-Specific Blind Reviewer Panels for Quality Assurance

Stage-5: Framing a Generic Framework for Collaborative Content Sharing

Stage-6: Avoiding Duplication of Efforts by Planned Courseware / Technology Development

Stage-7: Deciding on a Reasonable Timeframe for Courseware / Technology Development

Stage-8: Deciding on a Reasonable IPR and Revenue Sharing for Courseware / Technology Development

Stage-9: Deciding on a COL-Like Development Model

Stage-10: Deciding on a Work-Assessment-based Reward Policy

A Ten-step Plan for Growth: Quick Summary
bits vu in a nutshell
BITS-VU In a Nutshell
  • The BITS Virtual University is a small step in the direction of making Distance Learning effective, interesting and fun.
  • It has many entry points. The principal entry point is the BITS-VU secure Website.
  • The VU web site has news group and e-mail discussions lists for helping the instructor to communicate asynchronously with students in their understanding of concepts / issues / recent advances / exercises etc. as well as for allowing students to communicate with each other in an effective way..
  • In order to enable synchronous communication between the instructor and the students, the shared whiteboard application is used.
complementary components of the bits vu
Complementary Components of the BITS-VU
  • IP-based Desktop Video-Conferencing facility as well as Video-on-Demand features are gradually being integrated into the BITS-VU as other synchronous and asynchronous learning aids respectively.
  • BITS is closely working with the European Union’s NGN-I project for developing the v6 versions of these technologies.
  • The site also contains an on-line student assessment application which allows students to take some tests on-line and submit them electronically.

At the Front End and Back End
  • Toolset: A short list
on the server side
On the Server Side
  • Windows 2000 Server running on five local and two remote Server Class Multiprocessor Systems (IBM Netfinity 7100 included!) at BITS-Pilani, Wipro Bangalore and Wipro Hyderabad. This is soon to be extended to include Wipro-CTS Chennai as well!
  • Lotus Domino Application Server
  • IBM DB2 Universal Database version 7.5
  • Lotus LearningSpace 4.0
  • Real Audio Server
  • Collaboration Room Server
on the client side
On the Client Side
  • Pentium-III / IV or higher with 128 / 192 MB RAM recommended (P-200 with 32 MB RAM is the minimum configuration.)
  • Windows 2000 / XP Workstation recommended (Linux / Solaris / SCO Unix versions can use only partial features of the courseware at present; plug-ins being developed.)
  • Java-capable Web browser (MS IE 5.x, Netscape Communicator 6.x, Sun Staroffice 5.2 or higher) with recommended Plug-ins
  • Multimedia support with a headphone / speaker
  • Good Internet / Intranet Connectivity (multi-speed support)
other technologies at work
Other Technologies at Work
  • Agent Technology
    • Stationary
    • Mobile
  • Proactive and Reactive Multi-Agent Systems are being developed for the BITS-VU
  • Stanford JATlite and IBM Aglet Technologies have been used for different purposes
  • BITS-VU site is gradually being WAP-enabled so as to be able to offer select low-bandwidth and less graphics-intensive services to the mobile students on their hand-held WAP devices.
  • Cluster-based Automatic Load-Balancing Tool is being developed for improved performance over the Net.

Our Major Collaborating Partners

  • I B M : Through Tata IBM supports the back-end development environment
  • M I T : Through its seed money catalyzed the initial phase of courseware development
  • Distance Education Council : Through a grant for multimedia courseware development and an establishment of a digital video studio has come to help BITS for developing quality video courseware
  • CISCO Systems: Through its generous grant of its IP/TV product range has helped VU to acquire the complementary synchronous technology of desktop videoconferencing and asynchronous technology of video–on-demand.
  • EC’s NGN-I
