Amrita College of Engineering and Technology is engaged in promoting online learning among Faculty and Students to stay current in the rapidly changing world. Skill requirements are changing fast. Online learning is increasingly being used as a complement to University Curriculum through outsourcing the lecture by the learner allowing convenient and more classroom time for discussion and practice.
Currently, our Institution is supporting faculty and students to get engaged in real time online teaching and learning (Synchronous Learning) by giving access to the following technologies:
- Moodle Learning Management System (moodle.amrita.edu.in)
- Microsoft Team – integrated with Moodle
- Virtual conference using Zoom and BigBlueButtonBN from Moodle. This facility is currently used fully by all faculty and students since 21 March 2020 and they are engaged as per their class timetable.
Further, faculty and students are continuously guided to engage themselves to learn from online learning service providers (Asynchronous Learning) including NPTEL courses. Amrita College of Engineering has NPTEL (https://nptel.ac.in/LocalChapter/statistics/2932/) and Spoken-Tutorial (https://amrita.edu.in/node/263) Chapters to facilitate asynchronous online learning.
