OVERVIEW: Wiksate are a bunch of passionate and committed educationists, technologists and strategists who have come together to make a difference in the way social and informal learning can be captured, analysed, credited and showcased.
The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), a project funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development(MHRD), provides e-learning through online Web and Video courses in Engineering, Sciences, Technology, Management and Humanities. This is a joint initiative by seven IITs and IISc Bangalore. Other selected premier institutions also act as Associate Partner Institutions.
NPTEL is a curriculum building exercise and is directed towards providing learning materials in science and engineering by adhering to the syllabi of All India Council for Technical Education and the slightly modified curricula of major affiliating Universities. It has developed curriculum based video courses and web-based e-courses targeting students and faculty of institutions offering UG engineering programs.
OVERVIEW: To provide remote-access to Labs in various disciplines of Science and Engineering. These Virtual Labs would cater to students at the undergraduate level, post graduate level as well as to research scholars.
To enthuse students to conduct experiments by arousing their curiosity. This would help them in learning basic and advanced concepts through remote experimentation.
To share costly equipment and resources, which are otherwise available to limited number of users due to constraints on time and geographical distances.
