The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) was initiated by seven Indian Institutes of Technology along with the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 2003.  It is now possible for ANYONE outside the IIT System to be able to do an online certification course from NPTEL and get a certificate from the IITs. IITs are reaching out and taking education to the homes of people through this initiative. This is funded by MHRD, Govt of India. Click to login
