With the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) support, Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies (RGUKT) developed a Technology-Enabled Learning (TEL) policy to integrate technology in teaching, learning and assessment, and is now systematically implementing the policy through the development of courses.
COL’s engagement at RGUKT is transforming the teaching and learning process to match the learning preferences of young learners. At a jointly organised Blended Course Development workshop, held from 14 to 18 November 2017, courses in language, mathematics, and engineering subjects were developed, and will be offered to students in the semester starting February 2018.
Inaugurating the workshop, Professor V. Ramachandra Raju, Vice Chancellor of RGUKT, said: “RGUKT has been taking important steps to make technology-enabled learning part of its DNA. Thanks to COL for guiding the University and its faculty to implement TEL systematically.”
Professor V. Venkaiah, Director of the Centre for Educational Technology and Learning Sciences, coordinated the event and emphasised that “the workshop supported by COL is helping develop internal capacity and trainers who can assist other teachers in RGUKT to implement blended course development.”
