Kollam: After making a successful entry into Maharashtra earlier this month, Amrita University’s indigenously developed e-learning platform A-VIEW (Amrita Virtual Interactive E-Learning World) is now set to make its foray into Odisha. A-VIEW will be officially launched for Universities and Colleges in Odisha on January 21, 2013 at Bhubaneswar. A-VIEW is developed by Amrita E-Learning Research Lab with a mission to promote e-learning and disseminate quality education.
Prof. Ganapati Panda, Deputy Director, School of Electrical Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar; Satyananda Mishra, Chief Information Commissioner, Govt. of India and Dr. Ardhendu Mauli Mohanty, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor in charge, Centurion University of Odisha, are expected to attend the function.
According to a release from Amrita E-Learning Research Lab, A-VIEW is provided free of cost to all institutes of higher education. As of today, A-VIEW has been successfully deployed at more than 2,000 higher educational institutions across the country and is gradually getting extended to schools and vocational centres.
A-VIEW was launched for schools in Maharashtra on January 4 at Pune by former UGC Chairman Prof. Arun Nigawekar and eminent Computer Scientist Dr. Vijay Bhatkar. Now A-VIEW is being used on a pilot basis in schools in Maharashtra and Kerala.
A-VIEW is majorly supported by the National Mission on Education through ICT (Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India). A-VIEW runs on Windows, Mac, iOS platform, Android Phones and Tablets including Aakash, thus enabling learning on the move. With the help of handheld devices, students can answer the questions and teachers can receive instant feedback. By introducing A-VIEW to schools and collages, Amrita hopes to enhance the quality of education across India.
