NPTEL-IGNOU EDUCATION PROGRAMS USING NPTEL CONTENT AND IGNOU’s ODTEL FRAMEWORK - an IGNOU Project Proposal under the NME Submitted by K. R. Srivathsan, Pro Vice-Chancellor, IGNOU Convention Centre July 18, 2009
Some Facts About IGNOU Ø IGNOU – the university with the world’s largest enrolment of learners: ~2. 2 million students. Ø Only Central Open University established by an Act of the Indian Parliament; Now 14 State Open Universities. Ø Has over 300 Programs with over 2800 Courses. Reaches the unreached: Over 65% of our students are in the Rural Areas. Ø IGNOU’s learners reached through a network of 60 Regional Centres, over 2, 300 Study Centres spread across India and Partner Institutions. Ø IGNOU’s International Presence growing with Study Centres hosted by partner institutions in different spread over 35 Countries and the Pan African Network.
IGNOU’s Inclusive Education - A Testimonial From IGNOU Graduate "My name is Sumit Mehta. I am pursuing BCA-MCA Integrated Program of IGNOU and belong to BCA 2005 batch. Due to the fact that I am suffering from Muscular Dystrophy, I had to opt for correspondence studies and at that time I was not sure about the standard of the content of subjects in correspondence studies. But IGNOU's courses and curriculum is very competitive. The programs are recognized by the companies, as I have heard of and their content is also challenging that makes it relevant to the education standards. However, everything is good but in my view, if IGNOU can improve on its management by adopting modern mediums of communication and providing timely information to students, it will reach the standard that will be approximate to the regular institutions' standards. "

NPTEL-IGNOU Advantage: From Great Content to Great Courses India’s two leading sources of education content: Ø India’s National Program on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL: http: //nptel. iitm. ac. in) Over 6, 000 Hrs. of Recorded Video Lectures covering about 140 courses, 1000 s of pages of high quality e-content in more than 130 courses – for the Engineering Education. Ø IGNOU’s e-Gyankosh: Largest source of Self Learning Materials for Open Universities; associated youtube/IGNOU content. Challenge: How to develop and conduct courses using NPTEL content using Technology Enhanced Learning systems and processes? IGNOU is ready with the OPEN DISTRIBUTED TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED LEARNING (ODTEL) courses management framework.

ODTEL as unified e-Learning system 1. Instruction delivered to students using blend of delivery modes: (i) Conventional: Teacher taking the class uses rich content; (ii) Tutored Video Instruction using Recorded Video Lectures (RVL) (ii) IGNOU’s Self Learning Materials (SLM) and suppl. content. (iv) Web-accessed/DVD based content and interactive study. 2. Instruction Delivery augmented by effective engagement of Learners through systems and processes over Convergence. 3. Supported by Discussion Forums, E-mail and Mobile

IOCG for NPTEL Course Content Ø NPTEL Content of Recorded Video Lectures, Web and IGNOU’s SLMs helps in instruction delivery. Ø IOCG helps in engaging the students in sequenced and pedagogically structured LEARNING ACTIVITIES. Ø IGNOU Uses Wiki with suitable extensions related systems to deploy the IOCG. Ø IOCG is developed by Course Management Group of subject experts. CMG also Ø IOCG assures fairly uniform engagements of learners in learning activities across geographically distributed Study Centres/Colleges. Ø Systems for IOCG supported ODTEL management are built using FOSS based solutions.

Use of Tutored Video Instruction Ø Tutored Video Instruction (TVI) was introduced by Prof. J. Gibbons, Stanford University in 1970 s. Ø TVI involves Group Listening by students to Recorded Video Lectures and followed by interactions. Ø Weekly contact, or Interaction Classes held for tutorials, small tests, answering common doubts (as expressed in a discussion forum), conducting continuous evaluation exercises, motivational topics, case studies and problem solving, etc. TVI changes ‘Distance Learning’ and classroom learning to COLLABORATIVE LEARNING. Studies show performance of students as a whole increases by ~ 0. 6σ shift in the mean of the class.
