IIT lectures on cable

Budding engineers and software technologists in the country and abroad can now attend classes at the elite Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) without clearing the entrance examination. The only hurdle they may encounter is the local cable operator.

The IITs in Delhi and Mumbai will produce technology instruction programs for Gyan Darshan, the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry's educational channel, to be launched on January 26. The hour-long programs, tentatively called "IIT at your doorsteps," are being shot in studios within the campus and will include actual classroom lectures.

There are only five IITs in India, but about 1,265 technical colleges - 771 awarding degrees in engineering and technology and 494 awarding Masters in Computer Applications (MCA) - in the country with a total intake of 205,153 (1999-2000) students. These students are expected to benefit from the program, if the local cable operators agree to air the channel. Instead of poring over books for hours in the library or logging on to the Internet, students can just switch on the television for some quality learning. The channel would shortly be available for transmission in Europe too.
