What is EduNxt?
EduNxtTM is the next generation learning system that fully takes advantage of modern teaching techniques to create a virtual classroom where students come together to learn from distinguished faculty and each other. EduNxtTM was launched by SMU-DE in May 2009 by Steve Ballmer, CEO Microsoft Corp. USA and Anand Sudarshan, CEO Manipal Education to fulfil the following objectives-
The EduNxtTM platform is an easy to use delivery system. It enables a collaborative and interactive environment for learning and includes small group mentoring, virtual classrooms, simulation, self-study content, recorded presentations and shared browsing. EduNxtTM functions on the principle of 3As + 4Cs. The 3 As of Affordability, Accessibility and Appropriateness are the guideline to scaling up EduNxtTM across distributed learning. The 4Cs of Content, Collaboration, Communication and Computing are the basis of developing EduNxtTM into a means of disseminating education among the not-so-privileged or the infrastructure – challenged.
