About Swayam NPTEL Local Chapter

To provide wider dissemination of the NPTEL initiatives and integrate MOOCs to mainstream education, NPTEL had partnered with colleges across India as NPTEL Local Chapters in May, 2015. The initial idea was to create a small community within the educational institution/organization that will support learners in learning from NPTEL. Over the last 5 years, we have seen more educational institutions partnering with us by creating Local Chapters with the number reaching 3700+ in May, 2020.

What is a Local Chapter?

A Local Chapter acts as an extended arm of NPTEL.

A Single Point of Contact would lead the initiative in the institution and serve as an interface between the college and NPTEL.

The SPOC (who can be a faculty) will represent NPTEL at the institution and be NPTEL’s Ambassador.
