MANIT to launch Knowledge Mission

With the objective of reaching out to large number of students in far flung areas, Directorate Technical Education ( DTE ) in association with Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology ( MANIT ) will launch ‘knowledge mission’ in the technical institutions across the state by the year – end.

When contacted, MANIT director Dr Appu Kuttan said the objective of ‘knowledge mission’ is to make available important lecture material to students in the remote area. “Currently, few students have the opportunity to attend classes in big institutions. Knowledge mission will provide opportunity to all,” Dr Kuttan said.

Talking about the knowledge mission, Dr Kuttan said important lectures will be recorded under the scheme. “Lecture modules will be formed. These lecture modules will be uploaded on the website.

Besides, these modules will be shown through projectors to teach students,” Dr Kuttan said. The lectures will cover all engineering disciplines. Dr Kuttan recently met the DTE authorities to chalk out the plan for the knowledge mission.

To implement the knowledge mission, virtual class rooms and laboratories will be created in colleges. “Virtual classroom provides complete freedom of learning. The two – way live audio – video delivery, synchronous content sharing such as PowerPoint ( retains animations and transitions ), recording of all sessions to be played back in flash format are the part of virtual classrooms,” Dr Kuttan said.

Dr Kuttan will be meeting next week with the DTE authorities to finalise the knowledge mission scheme.
