Sibal inaugurates training programme for 10,000 teachers at IIT-Bombay

HRD Minister, Kapil Sibal inaugurated training programme for 10,000 teachers to be conducted by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Bombay. The programme is a part of the 'Talk to a teacher' project, which is managed by the HRD ministry's National Mission on Education through Information and communication Technology (NME-ICT).

The HRD minister was connected live to the event from New Delhi through a video link. Sibal interacted with professors and students from colleges across India, including Nagpur, Rajkot, Srinagar and Kanyakumari.

The training for 10,000 engineering college teachers will be conducted using ICT tools and the broadband network. The lectures for the course will be given by professors from IIT-Bombay and IIT-Madras, while the programme will be conducted via 168 remote centres across the country.

The course will also consist of live interactions and lab sessions, and will use software called A-VIEW, which will provide audio and video connectivity.

The usage of synchronous education to train teachers was developed by professors from IIT-Bombay. This form of education is aimed at training women teachers, who may not be able to admit themselves to contact courses due to family commitments.

Kapil Sibal was symbolically presented with an Akash Tablet by a representative of the IIT-Bombay at the inauguration ceremony.

The minister had earlier suggested that IIT-Bombay should present the heads of institutes hosting remote centres with an Akash Tablet. Sibal stated that he was happy with the speed with which the Akash project is progressing. He added that the tablet could also be used for programming languages such as Scilab, C++, C and Python.
