Free online education is easily available at the click of a mouse. So not only you try out another subject to study and gain more knowledge, you can also find many alternate sources to help you understand your current course material online. But just because it’s online doesn’t mean it’s any less serious. Free online courses/videos are not just an addition to the course you’re already doing or have done in the past. They can even help you grasp concepts which you may not have understood in the college. By visiting different online courses/videos, you’ll be exposed to different methods of teaching, and some methods may help you understand your college coursework better than others.

NPTEL is an acronym for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning which is an initiative by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) for creating course contents in engineering and science. Five engineering branches (Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Electronics and Communication and Mechanical) and core science programmes that all engineering students are required to take in their undergraduate engineering programme in India were chosen initially. Contents for the above courses were based on the model curriculum suggested by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the syllabi of major affiliating Universities in India.
