IT students of IGNOU now to get guidance in Hindi

New Delhi, Feb 11 (UNI) Hindi-speaking learners of Information Technology and Computer applications will now be able to have better interactions with course instructors and counsellors following the launch of Open Course Guide system by the Indira Gandhi National Open University.

''The system can translate the content in Hindi instantaneously, which will make the programmes more learner-friendly,'' Prof K R Srivathsan, IGNOU Pro-Vice Chancellor, under whose guidance it has been started, said today.

The system has been introduced yesterday for the students of Master of Computer Application (MCA) and Certificate in Information Technology (CIT).

''The IOCG is the first of its kind open e-Learning system anywhere which effectively addresses the complex course events management required for open education programmes,'' Prof Srivathsan asserted.

Plans were afoot to add the Students Satisfaction Survey with built-in analytics and visualisation for each course and programme, he added.

Explaining the software, Prof Srivathsan said the IOCG pages have been set over an open Wiki area. ''For each course, the IOCG serves as an interactive 'Community Dashboard' for the course coordinator concerned, the counsellors, registered students and anyone interested in the courses,'' he said.

It supported pedagogically disciplined modes of engaging the learners and managing course events through multiple modes, he added.
