National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL)

IIT Roorkee is one of the eight institutions involved in the MHRD funded project on “National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning” (NPTEL). The aim of the project is to improve the educational standard in all engineering institutions across the country. The project envisages design, development, delivery & evaluation of web-based courses and video courses.

The first, second and third phase of the project is already over. The courses are already freely available at NPTEL website at IIT Madras. 

For more details NPTEL Phase- I/II/III

After successfully completion 1st, 2nd and 3rd phase, Now move to 4th phase in which open online course will be offered through the portal http://onlinecourses.nptel.ac.in along the line of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). The course will be for undergraduate/postgraduate students of technical university/college. Each course is followed by an in-person proctored exam conducted in select cities all over the country. While enrollment to the course and learning is free, the exam has a registration fee to cover the operational costs. Students who register and write the exam will receive a certificate from Centre for Continuing Education of the institute offering the online course.

The duration of the course offered can be of 3 types: 10hours (4 weeks), 20hours (8 weeks) & 30hours (12 weeks). The course runs are being aligned to the semesters of the colleges and it is suggested to have 2 runs per year: Jan-May and July-November.
Following schedule is suggested:
30-hours courses: Jan-April & July-October.
