Union HRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal on Tuesday invited students to explore UG and PG courses offered on UGC MOOCs, a vertical of SWAYAM, or the Study Webs of Active Learning for Young Aspiring Minds.

Minister Pokhriyal asked students to explore the platform and take up the course of their choice on the microblogging site, Twitter. 

The vertical provides 100 PG courses and 207 UG courses across various subjects.

According to the PTI report, the National Online Education Platform SWAYAM has been accessed nearly 2.5 lakh times till April 8, which is about a five times increase over the figure of 50,000 strikes in the last week of March.
