6. Collaborating with Indo-US E-learning Initiative by Government of India.

In this land mark agreement six leading US Universities, including the University of California campuses at Berkeley and San Diego, Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, Case Western Reserve University Cleveland, Ohio and State University of New York at Buffalo, which are ranked among the best universities of the world, will join with Indian institutions led by Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, ISRO, and Department of Science and Technology to enhance science and engineering education in India. Three of the leading technology companies in the world, Microsoft, Qualcomm, and Canence, will also be funding this initiative.

They will depute their eminent faculties to teach full-fledged engineering subjects to engineering colleges and Universities all over India. These eminent faculties will physically come to India per semester and deliver the lectures live and interactively over special satellite network.

The first phase will include PG-Level courses/Subjects for M. Tech/M.E Students and advanced under-graduate students. Teachers can also be asked to participate in this programme.

7. Participation in NRC-FOSS Movement.

Govt. of India has all along been quite supportive of the Open Source Movement at a board level, and has initiated programs on promoting open source software technologies and practices. The same has also been taken up by a number of state governments, and an experts committee of the Govt. of Tamil Nadu has in 2003 come up with a set of recommendations on how to promote and proliferate this affordable solution. Most significantly, none other than the President of the Nation has himself come out strongly in favour of this issue in recent times.

Engineering Colleges and Universities in India can participate in, and contribute to, the FOSS Movement in India in a variety of ways, formal as well as non-formal, through the medium of the National Resource Centre.

The formal mode of participating in the activities of NRCF by the Engineering Colleges consists of sending their teachers to NRCF to get trained in FOSS, setting up a FOSS Lab in their colleges, offering FOSS Electives for their students in the regular BE/MCA Programs in their colleges, as well as enabling the students and faculty to carry out the final year projects in the FOSS area. These would be coordinated centrally by NRCF jointly with the Anna University administration. In the present phase of the activity, this mode of participation is initially limited to the Engineering Colleges that are constituents of, or are affiliated to the Anna University. This is expected to be extended to the colleges all over the country during the next phase of this activity.
