MSCERT trains 35,000 teachers using A-VIEW

Thiruvananthapuram, May 4 (UNI) In a matter of six days, the Maharashtra State Council for
Educational Research and Training (MSCERT) has used A-VIEW (Amrita Virtual Interactive E- Learning World) to train 35,000 school teachers at over 500 centers across Maharashtra.
MSCERT director N K Jarag initiated this programme with the support of IIT-Bombay and Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.
The goal of this program was to orient 5th standard teachers from across Maharashtra state (government and aided schools) to the updated syllabus and offer training for the new areas. One day was dedicated to each subject and the training was delivered by an expert in the subject area.
This program harnessed the features of A-VIEW to transmit live online lectures, share
content,and interact with 500 centers all over Maharashtra. Around 70 school teachers were
present at each of the 500 centers.
If this training session had been conducted using conventional means, the amount of time, money and resources required to train 35,000 teachers would be enormous. Scaling down the time and resources required, helped save a lot of money and also resulted in maximizing the reach of training and eliminating the cascading model of training delivery. The effective collaboration between the A-VIEW team, IIT Bombay and MSCERT resulted in smooth planning and execution of this program.
The A-VIEW software application is developed in-house by Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and supported by the Ministry of HRD (NMEICT) programme. Using A-VIEW IIT Bombay has been conducting several workshops in which 10,000 teachers are trained simultaneously all over India.
Training 35,000 teachers in a week’s time concurrently is likely to be a world record. Irrespective of the world record, this is a huge leap for technology-basedteacher training in India, an Amrita Vidyapeetham release said here.
A-VIEW is available free of charge for education. The A-VIEW technology is developed by Amrita E-Learning Research Lab which offers an innovative M. Tech. degree in E-Learning Technologies.
