Deepak Phatak, professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Bombay stated to the press "The quality and content offered online will be same as that offered on our campus. The only difference being the MOOCs will allow students to learn anytime, from anywhere and at a convenient speed. Students can revisit study material as and when required and skip familiar topics."
The courses will be delivered through sessions grouped into several themes or topics made up of two to four 15-20 minute 'episodes.' Each episode will consist of a video recorded lecture of about 8-10 minutes, followed by some practice problems /quizzes in addition to extra reading material for better understanding. Regular interactive sessions through discussion forums, video conferencing and other technologies will also be conducted. The course is free and open to all, and while an honour code certificate or audit is free of cost for the initial offerings, a verified certificate of achievement at the end of the course will cost about Rs 1,500 will be levied.
