Centre for Technology Enabled Learning (CTEL):

The fantastic growth of Information technology (IT) over the last few decades has changed almost every part of our daily life. As part of a national initiative from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, the present endeavour has been mainly towards providing the required infrastructure and connectivity to the institutions of higher education like IITs and NITs. The objective is to create and manage a rich pool of digital resources and utilize them to provide quality certification programme and courses, which can be used by government and non-government educational institutes and research organizations.

 

As the first step in this direction, the Centre for Technology Enabled Learning (CTEL) has been set up in the NIT Meghalaya Campus, allows faculty members of the Institute as well eminent experts from other institutions and organizations to develop course materials including high-quality video contents, which will be made available to the students through on-line streaming technology. A state-of-the-art studio has been set up in the centre where facilities for both content creation and content distribution are being provided. The CTEL recording facility is equipped with the following advanced electronic systems: Panasonic SMART LED Screen Display cum White Board, Digital Wireless Hand-held Head-worn Microphone Sets (Sennheiser, DU-3-EU-R), Lumens PTZ Cameras (Lumens, VCA50P), Crestron Airboard Whiteboard Capture System (Crestron, CCS-WB-1), Digital Graphics Engine (Crestron, DGE-100), HDMI Switcher (Crestron, HD-MD6x2-4K-E), HD Scaling Auto Switcher and HDMI (Crestron, HD-MD-300C-EW), Media Presentation Controller along with Table-top Kit (Crestron, MPC3-302W), Magnetic Whiteboard, Digital Metallic Podium and LED Light Fixtures (Crompton, LTCSN36CDL). Through this studio, faculty members of NIT Meghalaya and also neighbouring Institutes can participate in developing contents and directly assist in national initiatives like NPTEL and SWAYAM. More than 600 hours of video lectures have been recorded at CTEL till date.


Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE):

The Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship has been established in 2018 in order to promote the innovation activities among the students, alumni and faculty of NIT Meghalaya.
