The students reap the benefits without being present physically in the classroom. 68 Satellite Interactive Terminals (SITs) and Receive Only Terminals (ROTs) are installed across the country for the above-mentioned project.

 Students can also enjoy the facility to choose a subject and the expert, to deliver a lecture. under the facility of ‘Lecture on Demand’.
