Online education takes off in India

Abstract:
This demand for online education in a hot market like India has also sparked the interest of foreign universities. In 2007, Carnegie Mellon University tied up with Shri Sivasubramaniya Nadar College of Engineering in Chennai, in southern India, to offer IT courses. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is negotiating with the IITs. And Cornell University has struck a deal with South Indian service provider Easy Educate to offer courses in finance, management, and human resource to Indian students.

Here's how it works. Each IIT has 500 courses in all, but its distance-learning offering is 50 courses: a combination of Webcasts, live lectures, and prerecorded lectures. Courses range from the study of nanoelectronics to an introduction to biochemical engineering for both college and individual students. All the IITs are negotiating with Google video, which will help students download lectures for free.
