Terms of Service
What is the role of “IITBX”?
IITBX offers online courses that provide opportunities for faculty-to-learner and learner-to-learner interactivity with individual assessment of learner's work followed by a certificate of achievement or other acknowledgment to participants, demonstrating their mastery in the course. It envisages a collaborative development of digital teaching/learning content incorporating specific needs of teachers and students as per the syllabi and examination pattern followed at different colleges and universities. This will ensure that the contents are meaningful for each locale, and are thus likely to be adopted in real-life learning.
