The session was conducted by Mr. Abhishek Kumar, Scientist, INFLIBNET and was attended by approx 100 participants mostly Deans/Chairpersons/Heads/Principals.
Report Brief : Participants were enthusiastic and raised many queries and concerns regarding MOOCs/SWAYAM and most of these were addressed by Mr. Abhishek. However, some queries related to policies could not be addressed but participants were assured that the same would be raised in Board Meeting and/or at appropriate level. The session was attended by Vice-Chancellor as Chief Guest and was presided over by the Pro Vice-Chancellor. The Vice-Chancellor in his speech highlighted the importance of this initiative of Govt of India and requested participants to make every efffort possible for marking the presence of AMU in a big way. We, at AMU, aim to conduct more such Interactive Sessions to give boost to the implementation of MOOCs on SWAYAM platform at our University, both at the level of encouraging students to enrol in sufficiently good number and at the same time motivating teachers for content creation and launching their own courses.
