NPTEL courses allow students to learn from the comfort of their homes. The enrolments for July - Dec 2021 Semester have already commenced. The Last Date to enrol for the first set of NPTEL courses is 2nd August 2021.
NPTEL offers certification courses through the MOOCs format. Learners must-watch videos online, submit assignments on a weekly/monthly basis and can register for an optional proctored final exam. There is a nominal fee charged towards the in-person proctored exam for the certification. Students can request for transfer of credits once they clear the NPTEL certification exam if it is approved by the educational institute they are affiliated with.
NPTEL was initiated by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Guwahati and Roorkee) along with the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 2003. NPTEL is the largest provider of MOOCs in India today, with a credible proctored certification exam that clearly qualifies and differentiates the learners who do these courses.
