"This is a totally different experience to do a course with the aid of technology. If we have any doubts we just have to mail or call the professor. We will be put in the queue, when our turn comes we ask the question and the professor will answer it. If another student sitting anywhere in the country wants to add on his views, technology enables him to do it. The questions are, however, monitored by the co-coordinator and the lecturer sitting in the studio to ensure that everyone is not talking at the same time."1

- Jennifer D'Silva, Student pursuing a Management Course at Direcway Center.

"I have my kids in class VIII and X. I see them mugging up experiments to repeat them on answer papers. We want to change this."2

- Vijay Gupta, Vice-president, Corporate Communications and Planning, Wipro.

Introduction

Imagine a classroom devoid of professors, where the students attend classes sipping a cup of tea and munching some snacks without worrying about what the professors would say.

Imagine a school where students in a class divide themselves into groups and discuss different issues of a topic on their own, while the teacher plays the role of a moderator imparting his/her own inputs as well as answering questions raised by the students.

Imagine a village in India where solar powered vehicles, equipped with PCs and Internet connections go down the road and are stopped by villagers interested in accessing e-mail or checking out crop information.

Direcway tied up with premier management institutes in India to offer their management courses to working executives through the satellite-based learning programs3.

Wipro tied up with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) across the country to train teachers on effective means to the teach children, through its 'Applying Thought in Schools' program. It proved immensely beneficial to teachers who enrolled in the program. 

Renu Verghese, who attended the Teachers' Empowerment Program as part of Wipro's 'Applying Thought in Schools' program, commented, "TEP has helped me to review myself as a teacher and modify my teaching techniques so that students acquire learning for a lifetime. The programme is so child-centric, that the teacher takes a backseat. The programme is so child-centric, that the teacher takes a backseat.
