New Delhi,March 14 2016: NIIT.tv , the Internet television outreach of NIIT, will now offer support to students pursuing BTech and MTech degree programs by helping them with their curriculum and beyond, thanks to a tie-up with Thanjavur-based SASTRA University.
Sessions delivered by expert faculty members of the University will be broadcast on NIIT.tv. Programs on Biomedical Nanotechnology, Biosensors, and Control Systems will be available in the initial stage and will soon expand to other engineering, management & law disciplines including coaching for competitive exams like GATE, etc.
NIIT.tv is an internet TV portal that can be accessed on a computer, tablet or smartphone anytime, anywhere. It is a democratic digital learning initiative, backed by NIIT’s strong Educational Technology framework, that was launched in October last year with an aim to bring high quality training from its classrooms to every digitally connected learner, for free, at any time, place, and language of their choice. The platform has received an overwhelming response with a total of 1,70,000 registered users from 142 Countries. This has prompted NIIT to go beyond its programs and provide support in other areas of higher education through strategic tie-ups.
Between NIIT and SASTRA University, learners go through a complete multi-modal digital platform, experience free - tutorials, videos, live synchronous classes, e-books, interactivity, discussion forums, assessment, etc., thus making the combined ecosystem the richest, widest and the deepest learning environment for students pursuing BTech and MTech programs. The two learning destinations will enable a more seamless experience for their respective users in their pursuit to find learning material that is more suited to the skill sets required by the industry.
