Ekalavya Project- IIT Bombay
Project ekalavya was initiated in 2004 to generate an interactive platform for the creation, absorption, dissemination and usage of knowledge . It is an Open Source Knowledge Initiative launched by the Affordable Solutions Laboratory (ASL), Department Of Computer Science & Engineering, IIT Bombay. Ekalavya is manifested in several programmes such as the eGURU, the eOUTREACH and the eCONTENT. The OSCAR (Open Source Courseware Animations Repository) scheme under the eOUTREACH programme creates a large repository of interactive animations for teaching various concepts and technologies. This can be used through affordable dissemination for classroom teaching as well as for enabling independent learning and distance education.
The "Teach 1000 Teachers" programme was initiated by IIT Bombay in 2009 under the project, "Empowerment of Students/Teachers," sponsored by National Mission on Education Through ICT (NMEICT), funded by MHRD. The main aim of this programme is to work with Engineering Colleges in the country to enhance the teaching skills of faculty colleagues in core Engineering and Science subjects. Under the programme, IIT Bombay conducts ISTE workshops during the vacation period in summer and winter through various Remote Centers. FISAT (RC Id: 1077) is one of the approved Remote Center (RC) of IITB in the project ekalavya. Lectures are delivered by faculty from IIT Bombay, while tutorials and lab sessions are conducted in the same RC. The lecture transmission and live interaction takes place through distance mode using the AVIEW technology on the internet.
