Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) has taken a unique initiative to make its high-quality courses in Computer Science available to everyone. The faculty from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering have created a portal containing the core courses that can be accessed by educational institutions, students and anyone else interested.
The recordings of live lectures for CSE core courses at the undergraduate level and the graduate level, by the faculty of the Department, will be helpful to the students in engineering colleges to learn the underlying concepts and principles of the subjects of these courses in the right manner.
The core Computer Science courses that are available on the portal http://nsm.iitm.ac.in/cse/ are:
Each course has YouTube recordings of live lectures taught to the students at IIT Madras during the pandemic.
The portal has been created to help students who could not study at IIT Madras, especially those from remote and rural areas of the country. They will have access to the same curriculum that is taught in the institute. This initiative will ensure that quality material is accessible to all students.
It will also be beneficial to the teachers in engineering colleges to get to know how to effectively teach the important and fundamental subjects in Computer Science and Engineering and how to equip the students with the problem-solving skills. It is hoped that the portal will be used to improve the quality of teaching and learning the CSE core subjects in engineering colleges in India.
The Department is also planning to engage senior students to conduct live tutorial sessions where they will also clarify the doubts of students.
The Department plans to create randomised quizzes in the future for better evaluation. All the elements together will provide a comprehensive package for the students to learn the course.
