Nitte (DU) reaches out to students during the COVID-19 holidays
Nitte (Deemed University) has extended E-Learning facilities to support students during the COVID-19 lockdown. The University’s Learning Management System NUeLearn has been expanded to offer course pages for all Undergraduate students from 1st April 2020. Students of postgraduate programs will also soon benefit from online learning resources. NUeLearn is a sophisticated web-based education platform which supports development and delivery of e-Learning content, communication and interaction with students, conduct of online assessments and monitoring of student engagement. The platform which has been in use since 2015 for Blended Learning applications, is now being scaled up to provide remote access to learning resources for all students.
The University is taking a two-pronged approach for engaging with students during the unforeseen closure of its colleges. Students will receive access to Self-Directed eLearning Modules for asynchronous learning and will also participate in Live Virtual Classrooms for synchronous learning activities. A judicious mix of both methods will be used based on the needs of the specific programs. Online assessment will be an integral part of E-Learning activities. The teaching faculty of the colleges have been provided online training in the use of technology for education. They have responded enthusiastically to the new challenges and opportunities.
Students and faculty can log-in to NUeLearn at http://nitte.edu.in/nuelearn
User IDs and Passwords have been sent by e-mail. They may contact their Head of Institution or Course Coordinators for assistance in utilizing the E-Learning resources.
