Mission by HRD Ministry National Mission on Education would look only at Justifications from an institute in developing e-content .

DIFFICULTIES and hardships that are normally associated with developing e-content projects have been removed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The MHRD has an-nounced all institutions can get multimedia work done by a vendor if the college or university lacks departmental resources. The National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), a mission by MHRD, would look only at justifications from an institute in developing e-content "If a project proposal with animation work goes up to Rs 3 lakh, the fundingbody would look at the levels the animation modules are going to have," said S Senthilna-than, director (FAC), UGC-HRD Centre and an assistant professor of Bharathidasan University (BDU). He was speaking to Express after inaugurating an exclusive E-Content Development Centre at Holy Cross College (HCC) on Friday, the first in the city for converting text-books content into digital form.
The mission is to support the potential of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) through teaching and learning processes to benefit learners of higher education, for which Rs 10,000 crore has been allotted by the MHRD to provide study materials online. Senthilnathan said if a certain institute needs robust animation for the e-content page, there is a possibility of taking help from out-side sources for which there is a panel of vendors to develop con-tent. "The pay is based on the work. In this manna., difficulties have been removed by the Ministry to deal with external workers," Senthilnathan said. At the E-Content Development Centre at HCC, important topics in textbooks would be put into a video module to inculcate more accuracy on the subject for students. The final contents would be uploaded on the college website and any student can download the material for free. The MHRD funds can be used to expand ICT infrastructure, create a digital library and teachers can get money through projects for creating video lessons and e-modules.
