IIM Bangalore to offer Online Courses

IIM Bangalore to offer Online Courses

Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIM Bangalore) will soon bring the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) into practise from July onwards. The courses will be offered free of cost. The registration process for three of these short-term courses has already kicked off.

The students can now learn diverse topics as Statistics, Information Technology (IT) and Operation Management from senior faculty of IIM Bangalore, all while sitting at their homes.

Being the first to join hands with edX, IIM Bangalore will now have it as a contributing member to offer MOOCs. Learners all over the world will be delivered MOOCs by means of latest technology.

The edX platform has been earlier used by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University , who have offered interactive online courses to thousands of the students.

Currently offering only three courses, IIM Bangalore plans to increase the total number of courses to eight by December this year and to ten by April 2016

Around ten faculty members of IIM Bangalore have signed up to formulate and teach the online courses.

IIM Bangalore has also decided to tie up with other IIMs to offer courses to a wider audience such as corporate and service sector.

Starting July 7, students can enrol for courses in Business Statistics, Innovation and IT Management and Operations Management. Each course will be of four to five weeks long and will be imparted through multimedia—video lectures, audios, infographics, quizzes and even group discussions.

At the end of the course, students will get a certificate of completion. Although the courses will be offered primarily in English, as part of its objective to reach a maximum number of people, the courses will also be transcribed in Hindi and subsequently to other languages.
