With a mission to build A-VIEW (Amrita Virtual Interactive E-Learning World) as top-notch e-learning software, Amrita E-Learning Research Lab has integrated a dozen of exceptional features in the software said Shri Ramesh Guntha, Development Manager of the E-Learning Lab. He was interacting with the Universities from different parts of the country as part of weekly discussions through A-VIEW envisaged by MHRD under NME-ICT mission on November 30, 2011.

Shri Guntha said “Our mission is to transform A-VIEW as an outstanding ‘global’ e-learning software.”

Explaining about the features of award winning e-learning software, he said Auto Update, Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC), Hardware Pre-Testing and Global Control Local Management (GCLM) are some of the key attractions in A-VIEW Classroom 2.0 version.

“Auto Update verifies the latest version of A-VIEW in the Personal Computer / Lap top and if the version is outdated, then the system automatically downloads and installs the latest version. While Acoustic Echo Cancellation guarantees crystal clear interaction. Using GCLM system, Amrita University controls the central database and helps to connect all the colleges/educational institutes of India over a private network.”
