First of all, Happy Independence Day to all my Indian friends and followers. This post is about an Indian pioneer in online learning, namely NPTEL. The National Program on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) provides E-learning through online Web and Video courses in Engineering, Science and humanities streams. The mission of NPTEL is to enhance the quality of engineering education in the country by providing free online courseware. All videos of NPTEL include the lectures of Indian professors in IITs and IISc and they can be found either on NPTEL homepage or on their YouTube page. On YouTube, the video courses are organised as PLAYLISTS under the following Categories:
- Core Sciences
- Civil Engineering
- Computer Science and Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Electronics and Communication Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
And on their website, these are arranged in the order of Subjects.
Below are two Course Videos for a demo, one on Semiconductors and the other on Artificial Intelligence. It would be better to watch them before you go for whole.
Video I: On Basic Electronics of Semi-Conductors
Video II: On Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
