The Consortium for Educational Communication (CEC), as a premier institution for development and dissemination of educational e-content, is committed to transforming education through new ICT-based technologies with emphasis on learner-centric pedagogy for the benefit of web learners across the country.
CEC is one of the largest repositories of digitised educational content in the country, and also the National Coordinator for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for SWAYAM platform of MHRD and also for SWAYAM Prabha DTH channels offering a bouquet of 11 educational channels in various disciplines.
CEC has revamped its web portal re-designed especially to render it more user-friendly. Further, the new portal is equipped with web-based Learning Management System (LMS) with its self-paced learning taxonomy. It also has a rich web repository in the form of e—courseware and Short Learning Object (SLOs), re-introduced in a new format to facilitate conceptual clarity, thus making the acquisition of knowledge and skill-sets more efficient and effective.
Through these initiatives, CEC is on the way to take education to the remotest learners, and, I am sure, with the active cooperation of our stakeholders namely policy makers, academicians, collaborators and students, we shall continue to fulfilling the mandate entrusted to CEC by "Empowering People with the Power of Knowledge".
