Govt invites suggestions on PG-level online courses

“It is proposed to prepare fresh Moocs in the areas, which are widely in demand, but for which enough resources in terms of quality faculty are not available in all the universities.

“These could be the courses in niche areas or the courses that students want to pursue as electives in their universities, but are not able to due to lack of academic resources in their parent institutions,” the University Grants Commission secretary said, issuing a notice on Friday.

President Pranab Mukherjee recently operationalised Swayam to offer virtual classes for 29 subjects taught at the secondary and senior secondary school level, 210 undergraduate courses and 192 post-graduate courses in various streams, including engineering and management.

It will also offer 14 certificate courses and three diploma programmes online in a classroom environment, while functioning under the HRD ministry.
