NIT provides e-learning content development services for the Organisations as well as the individuals as per their specific requirements like:
Design: A design is prepared to achieve the learning objectives of an approved curriculum. Modules are designed to teach each objective and to facilitate student learning at a pace that matches their skills. Through our education consultants we select a professional domain expert/professor with good pedagogic skills, varied experience and creativity.
Presentation: After selecting a professor, we discuss the instructional design with him and identify the need for graphics, diagrams etc and then finalize the workbook with his participation.
Recording: We record the lecture in a state-of-the-art studio. There are a number of options for recording, for example - extempore talk, black board explanation, PowerPoint presentation, LCD projection slides, or during interaction with a live group of students. Out of these, the most appropriate options are selected.
Audio & Video Editing: After finalizing the recording procedure the cameras (Digital/Beta), lighting, ambience, and other equipment like microphones and projectors are selected for recording. The recorded material is video-edited, audio-edited, rendered and the transcript of the lecture is appended to provide the student with additional reference material.
More Features: Graphics, line drawings and animations are introduced at appropriate places. Self-tests, references and further materials are added.
Integrating: All the multimedia material: text, video, audio, graphics and animations are fitted into integrated software to make a single unit with multiple entry options.
Testing & Production: In this final stage the integrated copy is tested for quality a well as completeness.
Integrated Learning Management System
Recognizing the immense potential of the e-Learning technologies, NIT initiated a series of constructive steps to promote and develop this promising technology. A custom Integrated Learning Management System (ILMS) was developed with specific functionality to allow online courses to be delivered directly to students.
|With all the lectures and learning materials by prominent and proficient professors available on CD-ROM, it is becoming increasingly challenging to store, organize, distribute and keep track of issues and returns of these CD’s. Content Manager, a software tool, facilitates management of multiple CDs that are loaded on a central server. It is a small, elegant application that can be installed easily. It enables the creation of course catalogs, curriculum/content structure, retrieves any CD on the network on demand, keeps track of all the CD’s used and also the student profiles with respect to the CD’s used.|
|Learning Management System (LMS)|
|The LMS is a flexible tool that allows students to access course materials and evaluate their progress with online tests. It allows students to submit assignments and to interact with instructors and other students for a collective learning experience. Using the LMS, instructors can add and remove information, conduct online tests to assess student understanding of the course material, and communicate offline with students individually. Additionally, there is an administration module that allows college management to schedule courses, assign instructors, activate the status of students and monitor the system usage. This provides information about students, courses, time spent on the system and if required, this data can be used to charge services|
