Our Technology-based core principle, has enabled us to remain focussed on providing the effective teaching-learning experience using the best-in-class technology and tools. We have leveraged the nearly 40 years expertise of NIIT Ltd. whose core business is to provide online, blended and classroom training across the world to audiences spanning from schools to universities and multinational organisations.
In the current times when classroom-based face to face education is not possible, it was a smooth transition for our faculty and students to digital teaching-learning platforms because we have been using these tools in the past for many years.
Our integrated platform, NU Digital, provides easy access to all required learning resources to students with Single Sign On. Our custom technology framework has integrated multiple platforms for this purpose which include industry standard Learning Management system, Video conferencing system, Assessment management system and academic ERP system.
We ensure a wholistic approach for digital teaching practices which go beyond just using an online video conferencing tool. Our exhaustive set of digital tools include all aspects of teaching-learning including lecture delivery, discussions, online content repositories, quizzes & assignments, automated tools for attendance and more. All our online lectures are recorded and automatically made available to students on the next day in our learning platform. This ensures that any student who could not attend the session due to connectivity issues or any other reason can view the lecture recording. Such recorded lectures are also very helpful to students for revising the course content.NU Digital platform has been expanded beyond teaching-learning to provide full campus experience including activities for various clubs (e.g. Photography, Dance, Drama, Literature, Debate etc., a total of 24 clubs). The platform will also provide rich collaboration features for students working on group projects.
In consonance with our core principle 'Technology-based', NU uses the best of the digital tools, techniques and practices to increase effectiveness of the teaching-learning process, research and campus living. This helps students in gaining higher levels of knowledge and expertise in the time spent at the University. Usage of these digital tools is also expected to inculcate the habit of self-initiated learning among the students. By integrating technology in the design and delivery of content, creating a collaborative learning environment and using cutting edge assessment tools, we intend to create a personalised learning environment for our students.
NU has a full-featured online learning portal, where students can access digital content uploaded by faculty, submit online assignments, and take online quizzes. We constantly increase the content available to students via the portal, including some selected lecture recordings.
The entire campus is connected by Wi-Fi intranet, including academic blocks, hostels and a significant part of open space. Students communicate among each other and with faculty members using the email or collaboration facilities via our online learning portal. Students can access the internet via NU Wi-Fi from their laptops as well as mobile phones.
NU has implemented an academic ERP to process complete student management data from admissions to graduation. All types of uses including Management, Office staff, Faculty members, students and parents have access to ERP using the authenticated login and access functions/features as per their role.
Parents of NU students can login to parent portal and get access to academic performance and attendance data for their wards.
Major functionality in ERP includes following modules:
