SWAYAM is a programme initiated by the Government of India designed to provide opportunities for a life-long learning through hundreds of free courses taught at the university / college / school level and offered by best of the teachers in India and elsewhere. Indian college students can transfer the credits earned by taking these courses into their academic record.
Students learn via video lecture, reading material that can be downloaded/printed, self-assessment tests and an online discussion forum. The courses are delivered by seven National Coordinators: NPTEL for engineering, UGC for post-graduation education, CEC for under-graduate education, NCERT & NIOS for school education, IGNOU for out of the school students and IIMB for management studies.
Courses delivered through SWAYAM are available free of charge, although obtaining a certificate incurs a small fee. At the end of each course, students are assessed through a proctored examination and the marks/grades secured in this exam could be transferred to the academic record of the students. UGC has already issued the UGC (Credit Framework for online learning courses through SWAYAM) Regulation 2016 advising the Universities to identify courses where credits can be transferred on to the academic record of the students for courses done on SWAYAM.
