Portal providing Edutainment

 Portal providing edutainment


THE things that come to mind first when one thinks about YouTube are movie clips, music videos, entertainment and the like. However, with the internet fast becoming a dependable medium for sharing information, education too has found a place on the website. 
   The website, which hosts user-generated videos, has been helping impart online lessons in engineering as well. YouTube India and the ministry of human resource development launched a programme called the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) a few months back. This joint initiative between all the seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore imparts online lessons in engineering free of cost through the website 
   As part of the programme, web and video-based supplements for a large number of engineering courses were created to help teachers and students in India.There are nearly 1,600 hours of lectures available at present. And within the next few months, all the 110 video courses developed under the NPTEL project will be included. 
   In future, there will be a single repository containing more than 5,000 hours of curriculum-based learning in five major engineering subjects at the undergraduate and beginning postgraduate levels in India. Further, for the benefit of everyone in India and abroad, the site can also be accessed directly from


A broadband connection with a speed of about 512 kbps is recommended to view the lectures. 
   The video courses, organised as playlists, are categorised as core sciences, civil engineering, computer science and engineering, electrical engineering, electronics and communication engineering and mechanical engineering
