Engineering course material from the IIT up for grabs!

Hi Guys,

I just came across this link National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning(NPTel) Home where they are claiming that they will distribute the course material from the IIT and IISc in order to improve the quality of the students. I'm not sure how true it is as its been long back when I was an engineering student. But if this is really useful then I would want CEans to take advantage of it.

Here is a quote from their website.

Introduction The main objective of NPTEL program is to enhance the quality of engineering education in the country by developing curriculum based video and web courses. This is being carried out by seven IITs and IISc Bangalore as a collaborative project. In the first phase of the project, supplementary content for 129 web courses in engineering/science and humanities have been developed. Each course contains materials that can be covered in depth in 40 or more lecture hours. In addition, 110 courses have been developed in video format, with each course comprising of approximately 40 or more one-hour lectures. In the next phase other premier institutions are also likely to participate in content creation.

Five major engineering disciplines have been covered in this project so far (NPTEL Phase I) at the undergraduate (B.E./B.Tech) level.
  1. Civil Engineering
  2. Computer Science and Engineering
  3. Electrical Engineering
  4. Electronics and Communication Engineering
  5. Mechanical Engineering
In addition, a number of core curriculum courses common to all engineering programmes such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, management, electronics, language etc. have also been included.

Students and teachers of Information Technology and Computer Applications will also find a number of courses from the above that are useful for their studies or for supplementing their lectures.
