The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Dr Harsh Sadawarti, Vice Chancellor, CT University and Jeffery S. Davidson, Executive Director, Saylor Academy.
Dr Kamal Malik, Deputy Director MOOC Cell, said, “In the unprecedented times of COVID-19, it has become very important to remove all the infringements in the pathway of the studies of the students. Keeping this view in mind, we have collaborated; the learners are offered nearly 100 full-length courses at the college and professional levels, each built by subject matter experts. All courses are available to complete at student's pace, on student's schedule, and free of cost.”
Jeffery S. Davidson, Executive Director, Saylor Academy, elaborated, “This collaboration will let explore, learn, pursue, and build a robust, engaged, worldwide community of learners. The focus is on designing a self-paced learning experience that comes as close as possible to what one would learn in the classroom.”
