AICTE to power desi FB for tech students
Himanshi Dhawan TNN
New Delhi: It’s our desi facebook. All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and Microsoft have collaborated to host acommunication service that offers e-mail, instant messaging, Microsoft Office web apps, and 0GB inbox for 7.5 million engineering students and 5 lakh faculty members spread over 10,000 technical institutes across the country.
Live@edu — to be up and running in the next three months — will use cloud deployment to expand students’ access to highquality technical education. This will allow students to interact and share content both for work and social networking, and even initiate collaborative research projects.
HRD minister Kapil Sibal said, “This is an era of collaboration and we hope to empower 7.5 million students and 5 lakh teachers. It is the first project of its kind.’’ Live@edu will be a social networking site linked to its portal, allowing engineering students to interact with each other about their projects. It will also provide a communication and collaboration platform for both institutes and students.
