Friday, 07 September 2018 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

An online platform through the Special Centre for E-learning (SCEL) has been initiated at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), which will have online courses by the JNU faculty members for its students.

Through SCEL, the students can opt even a single course/paper rather than the entire courses of a programme. For example a social science student can opt for a course in life sciences or computer sciences.

In a first, a bio-organic chemistry course for master's students has been developed by a facility from school of Biotechnology, JNU. Dr BS Balaji, Associate Professor, School of Biotechnology, explained the genesis behind this initiative. He showed the glimpses of the four quadrant approach to that have video contents, e-text contents, evaluation and discussion forum. Few video lectures were shown and the different tools utilized were also demonstrated.

The course was formally inaugurated by JNU Vice-Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar.

“JNU has deployed a e-Learning management platform (eLMP) for the benefit of all faculty members and students of the university. All the faculty members can use this for creating their e-contents,” said Kumar.
