In our college we are gradually shifting towards the Digital Learning & Reading Process by adoption of modern teaching learning techniques for the benefit of the students and teachers as well. We have implemented an eLearning Resource Center (eLRC). The first eLearning Resource Center was established in GIT in the year 2009 as an Online Teaching Assistant (Accessible in Institute LAN only) for all GIT students.
All faculty members were uploading their teaching content on the eLRC. From the year 2020 Institute made it online in a true way. Students can access it from anywhere. Online subject help is provided in the form syllabus, teaching plan, question papers, presentations, ebooks, faculty notes, lecture videos, flash animations for all Engineering Subjects in a structured format. E-learning has changed the college experience for many students. Rather than sitting through college courses and taking notes, tech-savvy Net Generation students are taking advantage of video lectures and other forms of online learning.
The Institute has a Google Suit subscription through Google Sites facility available. eLRC is implemented using Google Sites. Every faculty and student of the Institute have an account on Google Sites. For every subject a separate account is created and a separate web page is well structured maintained. The web Page of every subject is well maintained and has the content like Syllabus, Teaching Plan, Practical Plan, Recorded Video Lectures of faculty members, Notes, PPTs, University Question Papers, any other material.
During the COVID 19 pandemic, faculty members took lectures using Google meet. Due to Google Sites subscription every faculty member has recorded his/her lectures and kept on eLRC. Due to this students were able to access lectures after academic hours also. Many workshops and seminars as well as FDP were arranged in the online mode. Alumni Meet and Alumni Interactions were also taken in online mode using ICT tools. All examinations during pandemic were conducted in the online mode using ICT facilities.
All classrooms are ICT enabled, hence regular academics can be augmented with online expert lecture and any relevant online video. All BE classes is having Smart Board on which we can write anything and also access the internet content using touch screen facility. Teachers are conducting tests in online mode using Google Form. It saves the assessment time. More importance is given on taking classes by faculties by using ICT tools and Smart Classes. Students Soft Skill and technical training also can be conducted in the online mode using ICT enabled facilities.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are internet-based courses, free of charge, that have incredibly large numbers of students. In a typical MOOC has specific start and end dates, a more-or-less defined topic of study, facilitator/s, and assessments. Institute has tied up with online certification platforms like SWAYAM, Coursera, AWS Academy, Huawei, Redhat Academy, etc. to which students register and take the benefits of additional training and certification. MOOCs bring people together from all over the world and encourage engagement between staff and students of a given university/ Institution to interact with wider people. Offering diverse classes on different topics makes it easy for learners to keep up with the latest news and trends and be on top of their professional field.
To make online learning resources available to the GIT students through a single window, Ekeeda.com has sponsored the Digital Library project to GIT. This video library contains 90000+ high-quality videos recorded by renowned experts from the Engineering industry. Students can watch videos and access notes through Ekeeda.com App and website. The login ids are provided to every student individually.
It covers content of different branches and a link to each branch is provided below.
By adopting these modern techniques it is found that students are getting attracted to it and they can easily understand the given topics through pictures, videos, animations etc. This has resulted in improving the results.
The Institute has an online complaint raising portal called Area Adoption Program (AAP). The lodging and resolving complaints is simplified and made faster.
