A-VIEW Meeting used for KTED's workshop 18 April, 2011
The Kerala Technical Education Directorate (KTED) organized a three-day workshop on Academic and Administration planning for 2011 – 2012 through A-VIEW Meeting software.
The event was held at the Regional Telecom Training Centre, Thiruvananthapuram on April 18th-20th, 2011.
Using A-VIEW Meeting (a video-conferencing tool) developed by Amrita E-Learning Research Lab, Mr. N K Sinha, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD) from New Delhi interacted with Dr. Latha, Director, KTED and forty nine Principals from various Polytechnic Colleges across the Kerala.
It was followed by a question-answer session.
Answering to a question, Mr. Saji T, Deputy Director, Curriculum Development Centre, Kalamassery, said A-VIEW Meeting can be installed in all colleges at a minimal cost. "Amrita E-learning Research Lab is providing A-VIEW Meeting at free of cost for MHRD's education purpose. Hence colleges only have to invest a minimum amount to buy additional hardware facilities such as webcam, video camera, headset and speakers."
He added that if colleges can assign a few personnel for managing the video-conferencing facility, the system can be implemented at the earliest in all forty nine colleges.
