Cashing on the benefits of the Internet, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has developed an e-module through which students can watch and listen to lectures by experts on various subjects, and appear for web-based tests from the comfort of their homes.

Programmes of India's Vyas Channel, dedicated to education and managed by the Consortium for Educational Communication (CEC), an inter-university centre of the UGC, is now available on its website www.cec-ugc.org. "The module presents the lectures in a systematic manner,” CEC director Prof G D Sharma said.

The module has options like discussion, quiz, assignment and feedback. "This gives much flexibility. The student can learn as per his convenience and there is scope for participation also," he added. The CEC has a target of converting all 15,000 programmes into the e-content module.
