davv: Davv: three new proposals for open and massive online courses | Indore News

INDORE: Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV) has sent three new proposals for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to address gaps suggested by the Ministry of Education.
Public administration, history and political science are the three proposals sent according to the instructions of the Ministry of Education.
“There were gaps according to the Ministry of Education who asked us to make three new MOOCs for Study Webs of Active-Learning for Young Aspiring Minds (SWAYAM) an emergency basis, DAVV has already sent the proposals and worked on the content,” DAVV spokesperson Dr. Chandan Gupta told TOI.
Now that credit points are an important aspect of the National Education Policy (NEP), DAVV’s Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) must play a major role in getting more credit points to improve overall academic performance.
The university has a total of 28 courses all of which are strongly chosen by students, currently five courses are in progress and eight new courses are in the pipeline, he added.
MOOC course credit points range from one to four points and after passing the exam, students can present the certificate issued by SWAYAM to their respective university and can obtain the credit points in their academic bank.
While DAVV’s Executive Board (EC) had already approved the transfer of credit points as soon as the choice-based credit system (CBCS) was implemented, candidates will have the choice of opting for MOOC courses for 40% rating.
Since the University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked higher education institutions (HEIs) to register with the Academic Credit Bank (ABC) on a priority basis, the number of registrations for the session is expected to increase. MOOC courses are offered twice a year in January and July and thousands of DAVVs have taken advantage of these courses, Gupta said. TNN
