Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) are one of the best Technology institutes. IIT and IISc have come together to improve the quality of technology education via National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), to understand what NPTEL is all about, you can visit the official website.
As a part of NPTEL’s attempt, videos are being uploaded for the different subjects of engineering discipline. Anybody can access and view these videos online on YouTube.
The official NPTEL website says –
“The main objective of NPTEL program is to enhance the quality of engineering education in the country by developing curriculum based video and web courses. This is being carried out by seven IITs and IISc Bangalore as a collaborative project. In the first phase of the project, supplementary content for 129 web courses in engineering/science and humanities have been developed. Each course contains materials that can be covered in depth in 40 or more lecture hours. In addition, 110 courses have been developed in video format, with each course comprising of approximately 40 or more one-hour lectures. In the next phase other premier institutions are also likely to participate in content creation.”
So, no matter whatever institution you are from you still have the opportunity to learn an engineering subject from the best teachers in the country, go ahead and utilize the opportunity. Also if you want you can use a YouTube Downloader to save these videos on your system to watch them any time you want, I recommend using the Firefox add-on to download the videos from YouTube.
