SWAYAM is a program initiated by the Government of India and designed to achieve the three cardinal principles of Education Policy viz., access, equity, and quality. The objective of this effort is to take the best teaching and learning resources to all, including the most disadvantaged. SWAYAM seeks to bridge the digital divide for students who have hitherto remained untouched by the digital revolution and have not been able to join the mainstream of the knowledge economy.
This is done through a platform that facilitates hosting of all the courses, taught in classrooms from Class 9 till post-graduation to be accessed by anyone, anywhere at any time. All the courses are interactive, prepared by the best teachers in the country, and are available, free of cost to any learner.

The courses hosted on SWAYAM are in 4 quadrants – (1) video lectures, (2) specially prepared reading material that can be downloaded/printed (3) self-assessment tests through tests and quizzes, and (4) an online discussion forum for clearing doubts. Steps have been taken to enrich the learning experience by using audio-video and multimedia and state-of-the-art pedagogy/technology.
To ensure that the best quality content is produced and delivered, nine National Coordinators have been appointed. They are:
- AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) for self-paced and international courses
- NPTEL (National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning) for Engineering
- UGC (University Grants Commission) for non-technical post-graduation education
- CEC (Consortium for Educational Communication) for undergraduate education
- NCERT (National Council of Educational Research and Training) for school education
- NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling) for school education
- IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University) for out-of-school students

Eligibility for the certificate will be announced on the course page and learners will get certificates only if this criteria is matched. Universities/colleges approving credit transfers for these courses can use the marks/certificates obtained in these courses for the same.
Credit Transfer in NPTEL
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 onto the academic record of the students for courses done on SWAYAM. AICTE has also put out a gazette notification in 2016 and subsequently for the adoption of these courses for credit transfer.
You can indicate your grievances related to Credit Transfer at your parent university by submitting them in this form.
The current SWAYAM platform is developed by the Ministry of Education and NPTEL, IIT Madras with the help of Google Inc. and Persistent Systems Ltd.

NPTEL has been offering self-study courses across engineering, humanities, and science streams for more than a decade. These are available at: http://nptel.ac.in. From March 2014 NPTEL has been offering online certification for its courses, the highlight being the certification exam through which the student gets an opportunity to earn a certificate from the IITs!
These are available here
To take this initiative forward and to encourage more students across colleges to participate in this initiative, we are setting up a SWAYAM-NPTEL chapter in colleges (with the approval of the management) which will be under the headship of a faculty member of the college, who would be our Single Point of Contact (SPOC). We will keep the SPOC updated about all the latest NPTEL initiatives and give him information that he can disseminate among the students. He can identify suitable mentors for various courses, who can ensure that students are active in a course, are submitting their assignments on time, and also clarify the doubts they may have.
We hope your college will be part of this initiative and thank you for your valuable time.
About NPTEL Awareness Workshops for faculty
NPTEL Awareness Workshops aim to create maximum awareness among faculty members about NPTEL and its various initiatives. The workshop will include sessions on NPTEL and its features, NPTEL Online Certification courses, and the concept of NPTEL Local Chapter. NPTEL and the host Institute will jointly organize the workshop. The host college will invite 2-3 faculty members from colleges (both Engineering Institutions and Arts and Science colleges) that are within a radius of 150 km. Typical duration of the workshop: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
NPTEL is now conducting e-awareness workshops also in association with its partner colleges.
Expected outcome: The faculty will become aware of NPTEL and how it can be used and can take it back to the Heads of their institutions for implementation in the best way to benefit their students. These members can also have a session with their students, where they can explain about NPTEL to them.
Note: Workshop requests from colleges will be entertained only under the following conditions:
1) Similar workshops have not been conducted so far in the region where the college is located (at least in the last 2 years)
2) Availability of NPTEL coordinators and Resource persons from the IITs / IISc
