Delhi University (DU) is getting on the e-technology fast lane. The Ministry of Human Resource Development has handed a pilot project to the varsity which may lead it to becoming the national centre for e-content development. DU's Institute of Life Long Learning (ILL) Director A.K. Bakshi, who is handling the project, said that they have been developing online quizzes, creating virtual laboratories and e-content for seven subjects as a part of the project. The project, which is a part of the Rs 5,000 crore schemes of National Mission of Education
Through Information and Communication Technology, has a December deadline. In an attempt to keep pace with the changing times and the morphing education scenario, DU has been developing e-content for various subjects so as to make concepts clearer to students and make learning an enjoyable process. One of its latest initiatives is video lectures in different subjects. The lectures will be recorded around June 20 and uploaded on ILL's portal. Besides the video lectures, visuals, animations, online quizzes and virtual laboratories are also being developed by ILL for different subjects.
