Not all core courses are available as MOOCs Electives are getting offered Our schedule of courses should be available ahead of time This helps colleges to plan credit transfer etc.

40 Highlights: Course topper in 4 courses – Sep Oct 2016
Dear Madam, First of all a big Thanks to you:) My experience in pursuing NPTEL Online courses has been fabulous. It was a great opportunity as I have greatly enjoyed the different courses during the July-October 2016 period and feel privileged to be taught by the great professors of renowned institutions. During this period, I had registered for 4 courses and the successful completion of all has enhanced my knowledge and self confidence immensely for which I am sincerely thankful to this great initiative from NPTEL. It has further increased my urge to learn :) The NPTEL online courses gave us the flexibility of pursuing the course from anywhere and anytime which was a reason that I could attend and appear for multiple courses during a short span of time. The regular online videos and assignments kept us on our toes and ensured that we were regular in our participation and learning process. In short I will like to reiterate that I have benefited immensely from these online courses both knowledge-wise and increased confidence. About recognition, I will come to know once I share my certificate details. Thank you. Kind regards, Madhabi Sinha ** She is employed in BBA REMAN LTD and has taken up 4 exams in the Sep-Oct 2016 exam Stress Management -96 Introduction to Modern Application Development -92 Soft Skills Development -90 and Developing Soft Skills and Personality-93, where she is the topper of all the 4 courses

44 FAQ Where do I get information about up-coming certification courses?
How do I enroll/register for an NPTEL online course? Is there a fee to enroll for an online course? What is the eligibility criterion for registering for an online course? How many courses can I enroll for at a time? How old should I be to register for an online course? I just came to know that an online course that I wanted to join has concluded its run. Is there any chance of this course being offered again? Will exams be offered for completed courses in the next run? If I enroll to a course this time and miss writing the exam, next time the course is offered, do I have to enroll again? If I don’t submit any assignment, can I register for the exam? How many exams can I give during a run? What if I have limited internet access? How do I watch videos online?
