About Massive Open Online Courses - SVU

The first MOOCs emerged from the open educational resources (OER) movement. The term MOOC was coined in 2008 by Dave Cormier of the University of Prince Edward Island. In India, the Government has announced 244 online courses (MOOCs) that will be hosted on SWAYAM

Under the phenomenon of Digital India Campaign, Sri Venkateswara University takes the lead to explore the ICT enabled platform. The learning modes have been scientifically developed with exhaustive Audio-Video Lessons, where students can access the lessons from Virtual Class Rooms. Students who are committed to their professional lives and yet want to pursue higher education goals will be able to take the best advantage of MOOCs courses. SVU, on other hand, provides them with exclusive student support that guides the students for a seamless experience.

The purpose behind the introduction of MOOCs at SVU would then be to add value to the education, in particular the learning for the students, community, in order to maximize the social capital, while driving down the total costs of education. This is a bold, ambitious, risky and ground breaking “innovation” and transformation that very few institutions in India are ready to establish the hi-tech learning platform for students.
