Students failing to get admission in their college of choice in the capital need not lose heart.
The Delhi University is now working on a project to provide video-graphed lectures of teachers from several colleges on-line.
For the purpose,the DU is setting up a modern studio at its Institute of Life Long Learning (ILL),where lectures of popular teachers and experts of various disciplines will be recorded and put on its portal.
“We are getting recorded the lectures of the best of our teachers from all the colleges so that the students can learn from them on-line no matter in what college they are enrolled,” ILL Director A K Bakshi told PTI.
The project has been basically initiated under the ‘Pan-African e-Network Project’,commissioned by the Ministry of External Affairs of India in February this year.
“Under the Rs 542.90 crore Pan-African project,we had been asked by the External Affairs Ministry to develop e-content,including the multimedia material for various disciplines to be provided to the African students,” he said.
He said the video-graphed lectures are being developed to beam them live through satellite to the African nations so that they can get a genuine class-like atmosphere there while pursuing a DU programme without moving out of their countries.
