E-learning boon for slow learners


The Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Kakinada will introduce e-learning in the engineering colleges under its fold to improve the quality of technical education, according to its Director (Evaluation) Dr.Ch.Sai Babu.

Holding an awareness meet at the Prakasam Engineering College at Kandukur he said the syllabus being revised by involving experts in the fields of education and industry would be adopted for the first year students from the new academic year.

Explaining the salient features of e-learning, he said students would be provided with e-content and video clippings so that the slow learners could learn at their own pace, while others could access global links to get additional information.

Online evaluation of answer-sheets would be made from current academic year to ensure transparency. Students could get by email their evaluated answer-sheets to know where they had done mistakes, he explained.

He gave appreciation letters to Narayanamma who scored 99.56 per cent and Gitasruthi, who scored 96.9 in B.Tech first year exams.

PEC Correspondent and Secretary K.Ramaiah said online evaluation would go a long way in minimising evaluation-related problems. College Director K.Srikanth also spoke.

Free educational websites designed


A virtual school uploaded with subject-based lessons, 1,008 short stories and 100 corporate skills, is now made available to the children of all age groups.

International Council for Educational Research and Training (INCERT) and AIMS designed an educational website that imparts online classes. Director of INCERT and AIMS Jaya Venugopal said:

“The objective is to eliminate the concept of tuitions where children can sit at home and access lessons at their own convenience. ”

The three websites – http://www.drjayasvirtualschool.in, www. nanamma.co and www. corporateskills.org aim to reach out to the children. The portal also provides e-library.
