Vision, Mission and Goals

Vision

  • Providing high-quality instruction at very low cost to a multitude of people encompassing atleast 50% of Indian Higher Edu  institutions (34K colleges /645 Universities), 25 % of Vocational Segment as well used as the “tool” for lifelong learning enrichment  by 2020.
  • Essence of Meta University picks up allowing students to take up multiple courses of their interest.  Connects /Touch points created with end beneficiaries via learning hubs for F2F interaction. A financial biz model would emerge for providing these services.

Mission/Goals

  • While MOOC’s will be popular from a viewing/consumption perspective, concept of learning hubs (could be colleges or prep centres too) catering to small  groups would evolve – where community teachers/subject matter experts/domain specialists would assist in clarifying doubts or conduct a discussion or help in taking an assessment in a proctored environment.
  • Conducive Govt. policy where initiatives like NPTEL and NKN made more robust and augmented with content from top faculty and institutions. Uniform guidelines for conduct of MOOC’s for Level 100 (Base Level) across all technical institutions. Irrespective of language, localization and contextualization of content would be feasible
  • Non-traditional entities may begin to offer MOOC’s for people who want to learn a specific subject – example museums on Indology or a World Bank/UNDP like body on Policy Making, etc.  Specialist firms of learning analytics would crop up who would provide inputs to stakeholders on content, learning, pedagogy and assessment.
  • Cross Collaboration of Industry Association/ Sector Skills Council to endorse skills acquired by graduates of MOOCs. Paid models of certification to assess knowledge would materialize and trend towards global alliances with traditional universities.
