On Technology Enhanced Learning Teaching
  • All of our educational institutions
    universities, colleges, schools to absorb
    effective use of TELT.
  • E-Content, Course Management, Digital Learning
    Resources, Scientific Databases, E-Journals and
    Publications, E-Discussion Forums, Advanced
    Computing access, multimedia, remote classrooms
    as part of colleges educational systems.
  • Instructional processes management, learning
    management, teacher support systems, continuing
    education at all levels, just-in-time and
    on-demand learning needs, virtual institutions
    formed by collaborating institutions all will
    need high tech support systems.

A View of ICT Requirements in Education Research
Synchronous Interactive Classroom Environment
Regional Network
  • Systems far too complex for most institutions to
    handle
  • Establish Edugrid Centers for Communities of
    local colleges

Education Grid Vision Opportunity
  • VISION FOR NKC? Enable, Educate and Empower
    Every Citizen and Community through Knowledge.
  • Quality Education to all Independent of
    Geography
  • The Opportunity and the need
  • Broadband fast moving in. All institutions will
    soon be over broadband SWAN, Mission-2007
  • Increasing availability of open source, systems,
    open courseware and web-accessible resources
  • Education Grid - one click away for any competent
    teacher, learner or institution who seeks
    knowledge empowerment.
  • ? Need for servicing the complex systems and
    tremendous capacity building in institutions and
    people.

establishing such national knowledge
infrastructure?

NPTEL over Education Grid
  • Under the National Programme on Technology
    Enhanced Learning, the IITs and IISc have
    produced pedagogically effective/useful content
    in 230 courses.
  • IITs have established facilities for ongoing
    production of sophisticated content.
  • Rich open e-courseware from other sources like
    the MIT-OCW, OUW-UK, many leading universities of
    the world.
  • How do we deploy these content in the colleges in
    ways that enhance the quality of education?
  • EDUCATION GRID supported instructional services
    will help a great deal in achieving this
    important objective.

11
  • Need to build Learning Resources and Processes
    that address Quality.

12
Objectives of Quality Education
  • To make our graduates EMPLOYABLE.
  • To be PRODUCTIVE ON THE JOB and in LIFE.
  • To observe REAL WORLD PROBLEMS, abstract the
    issues and apply what they have learnt and their
    innate sense to solve them.
  • ? Three dimensions of
  • Employable Graduates.
  • ?Quality Education imparts effectively all three
    dimensions in a balanced way.

Quality Instruction needs teamwork and effective
management

Ensure TELT as Facilitation Layer as
K-Infrastructure for colleges
  • Today Universities must recognize TELT as part of
    Learning Infrastructure
  • Upgrade capacity of every institute / university
    college to absorb TELT and use it in their in
    house and open learning activities.

  • Automated Grid concepts developed at IIITM-K.
  • Get each course supported by industry for
    sustaining the above collaborative environment.

Quality Learning Environment of Tacit-Explicit
Interplay
  • At the end of a learning effort, a Learner
    should be able to say I understand ? Add to
    his/her Tacit capabilities.

Intuitions, Social interactions Peoples Real

3. Learning from past experience
5. Challenges
4. Application
  • Need to go much beyond syllabus, classes,

FUTURE INSTITUTIONS AS KNOWLEDGE RESOURCE
LEARNING CENTERS
  • Institutions to fulfil Public Responsibility
    Functions Open Education on demand.
  • E-Learning and Teacher Training Resource Centers.
  • To host Scientific Portals and Open Computational
    Servers.
  • ? To act as KNOWLEDGE SERVICES CENTRES backed by
    Postgraduate Schools.
  • Recognise and reward efforts in quality education
    and educational processes and knowledge services.

25
How do we build such grand K-Infrastructure?
  • Propose a referral Advanced Informatics
    Development Agency (AIDA - to be hosted at
    IIITM-K?) as the coordinating agency.
  • Like the way ADA coordinates in mission mode LCA
    related developments across multiple agencies.
  • AIDA may function as the hub of NKCs National
    Knowledge Mission and K-Infrastructure.
  • There will be many advanced informatics centres
    of specialized areas in leading institutions,
    universities and RD organizations associated
    with the AIDA.

  • Gordon Moore, Education is our Achilles Heel.
  • It is about time we REINVENT THE EDUCATION SYSTEM
    with FREEDOM OF THOUGHT, OPEN LEARNING, OPEN DATA
    ACCESS AND OPEN COMPUTING!
  • Build the Grids of Grids Grid Computing, Grid
    Accessed Computing, Data Grid Scientific
    Portals, Information and Knowledge Sharing Grid.
  • Make the Grids support KNOWLEDGE INTENSIVE
    PRODUCTS AND SERVICES.
  • Involve college youth and postgraduate in
    development.
  • Restore the Joy of Learning and the Dignity of
    Scholarship.

30
AN OFFER OR A REQUEST ?
  • IIITM-K is the most ready institute in India to
    host the AIDA operational centre.
  • About to get 10 Acres in Technopark just 25
    mts. From Trivandrum Intl. Airport ready to
    host AIDA.
  • Education Grid and AIDA as the mission
    coordination agency provide the best enabling
    approach for rolling NKCs plans.
  • Peter Drucker Knowledge has become the key
    economic resource and the dominant - and perhaps
    even the only source of competitive advantage."
  • THANK YOU
