IIT Madras: India’s top-ranked IIT, Indian Institute of Technology-Madras, has taken its own initiative to make quality courses in computer science available to everyone. The Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering has created a portal containing core courses accessible to educational institutions, students, and other interested parties.
The institute officially said that this initiative is also a major step towards realizing the vision of Professor V. Kamakoti, Principal of IIT Madras, who is enthusiastic about making quality education available in the Indian countryside.
The core computer science courses available on the portal nsm.iitm.ac.in/cse/ are about programming, data structures, computer organization, and algorithms. Each course has a YouTube recording of a live lecture taught to students at IIT Madras during the pandemic.

Regarding this initiative, Professor C. Chandra Sekhar of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at IIT Madras said: Undergraduate faculty are expected to help engineering students learn the concepts and principles underlying the subject matter of these courses in the right way. “
In addition, Professor C. Chandra Sekhar said: “Knowing how to effectively teach important and basic subjects in computer science and engineering and how to provide problem-solving to students is also useful for engineering teachers. Skills. Portal is an Indian engineering department. It is expected to be used to improve the quality of education and learning in CSE core subjects. “
Computer science is one of the most popular engineering disciplines in India, especially in IIT, and is of great interest to students. Most students apply for this stream at IIT, but the number of seats available in the computer science and engineering departments is limited.
Emphasizing a unique aspect of this initiative, Dr. Rupesh Nasre, Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Madras, said: Rural areas of the country. They have access to the same curriculum that is taught in the institute. This initiative will give all students access to high quality materials. “
In addition, Dr. Rupesh Nasre said, “In addition to assisting students, this initiative will also benefit faculty members of other institutions by providing access to the lectures taught at IIT Madras.” Said.
The department also plans to have senior students conduct live tutorial sessions where they can clarify their questions.
Abhishek Dhiman, a student who benefited from the portal, thanked the faculty members for taking this initiative and said, “Even if I am not an IIT Madras student, I am able to access the institute’s lectures mainly because of this amazing initiative.”
Those who take advantage of this initiative can also take a quiz on the portal to self-assess and verify their comprehension of the course.
Sharing his experience working on this initiative, Kovvuri Sravankumar Reddy, a third-year student at BTech in Computer Science and Engineering, said: “The difficulty of the quizzes on the portal is on par with the exams conducted by the Institute for the undergraduate students.”
The department plans to create randomized quizzes in the future for better evaluation. All the elements come together to provide students with a comprehensive package for learning the course.
