EduNxt is the next generation learning system
It takes full advantage of modern teaching techniques to create a virtual classroom, where students come together to learn from distinguished faculty and from each other. Launched for SMU-DE in May 2009 by Steve Ballmer, then CEO Microsoft Corp. and Anand Sudarshan, CEO Manipal Education, EduNxt not only imparts quality education online using cutting edge technology, biut also helps develop a sense of togetherness among the members and different stakeholders of the huge community using the platform.
Easy to use and plug in, EduNxt enables a collaborative and interactive environment for learning which includes small group mentoring, virtual classrooms, simulation, self-study content, recorded presentations and shared browsing. EduNxt functions on the principle of 3As and 4Cs. The 3 As of Affordability, Accessibility and Appropriateness are the guidelines to scaling up EduNxt across distributed learning. The 4Cs of Content, Collaboration, Communication and Computing are the basis of developing EduNxt into a means of disseminating education among the not-so-privileged or the infrastructure-challenged.
