ICT in Education - Initiative of the Ministry of Education


The 'Study Webs of Active Learning for Young Aspiring Minds' (SWAYAM) is an integrated platform for online course delivery that spans school (9th to 12th) through postgraduate level. This is accomplished by using a platform that enables hosting of all classroom-taught courses from Class 9 through Post-Graduation, allowing access by anybody, anywhere, at any time. Every course is interactive, created by the top instructors in the nation, and offered to all students without charge. These courses have been prepared by more than 1,000 faculty members and instructors who were carefully selected from across the nation.

The courses offered by SWAYAM are divided into four sections: a video lecture, specially created reading material that can be downloaded or printed, tests and quizzes for self-assessment, and an online discussion board for questions and answers. Efforts have been made to improve the educational experience through the use of audio video, multimedia, and state-of-the-art pedagogy/technology.


SWAYAM Prabha is a project that aims to offer 32 High-Quality Educational Channels via DTH (Direct to Home) on a round-the-clock basis to the entire nation. It offers curriculum-based instruction in a variety of subjects. This is primarily intended to increase access to high-quality educational materials in rural locations where internet accessibility is still an issue.

SWAYAM PRABHA is a collection of 40 DTH channels that use the GSAT-15 satellite to continuously broadcast high-quality educational programming. The students can choose when they want to learn new material each day for at least four hours, which will then be repeated five more times during the day. The channels are uplinked from Gandhinagar's BISAG-N facility. The materials are offered by NPTEL, IITs, CEC, IGNOU.  The INFLIBNET Centre maintains the web portal.

The National Digital Library of India (NDL)

NDL is an initiative to provide a framework for a digital repository of educational resources with a single-window search function. Through the NDL, more than 3 crore digital resources are accessible. Nearly all significant educational fields are covered, as are all significant learning levels, including lifelong learners. With over 20 lakh active users, the NDL has more than 50 lakh students who have registered. A smartphone app is now available for accessing the NDL. You can access it at

Spoken tutorials:

To increase students' employment prospects, 10-minute audio-video tutorials in open-source software are available. It is designed for self-study, has audio dubs in all 22 languages, and an online version is available. The languages include Scilab, OpenFOAM, OpenModelica, DWSIM, LibreO, Java, PHP, Python, PERL, and many others. Without the assistance of a physical teacher, the Spoken Tutorial courses successfully train a novice user.

Free and Open Source Education (FOSSEE) Software :

The FOSSEE initiative ( encourages the usage of open-source software in educational settings. It accomplishes this through educational materials like spoken tutorials, documentation like textbook supplements, awareness programmes like conferences, training workshops, and internships, and instructional materials like these. Textbook Companion (TBC) is a database of source code for examples from common textbooks that have been solved. Approximately 2,000 college students and instructors took part in this project, and more than 1,000 TBCs were produced in Scilab and made freely downloadable.

Virtual Lab:

The goal of the Virtual Labs Project is to provide a fully interactive simulation environment where users can conduct experiments, gather data, and respond to questions about the knowledge they have learned. The development of virtual laboratories using cutting-edge computer simulation technologies to produce real-world surroundings and problem-solving abilities is vital to achieving the goals of such a large-scale undertaking. About 225 of these labs are currently in use, have conducted more than 1800 experiments, and have benefited more than 15 lakh students.


E-Yantra is an initiative that aims to improve embedded systems and robotics instruction across Indian engineering colleges. Workshops that teach the fundamentals of embedded systems and programming are used to train teachers and students. Through this effort, more than 275 colleges in India have benefited. On the e-Yantra website,, all the projects and code are accessible as open-source content.
