The new tools of education
Digital teaching tools have brought a revolution in the way we approach education in the 21st century. The use of digital technologies in teaching and learning has become particu-
larly essential in view of the fact that we are seeing a gradual expansion in the growth of knowledge in all the disciplines of education. At the Jamia Millia Islamia many different digital technologies have already been deployed. We are sing LCD projectors for teaching in various faculties, departments and centres of the University. In engineering, science and management disciplines, in particular, digital tools have gained an immense amount of popularity. Some faculty members are using e-contents for teaching in their classrooms.
Deployment of digital technologies
The University is planning to set up smart classrooms in all departments of the university. Deployment of learning management system (LMS) is being initiated by the university in order to improve the overall quality of teaching, learning and assessment. We are also using the quality educational material that is also available on the World Wide Web. The ratio of the number of students and the number of computers in the university is 5:1.
Our aim is to use ICT technologies to bring further improvements in the education that we are offering to our students. We are open to the idea of modern technology transforming the nature of the present universities, making them digital and virtual.
