The trainings started in July 2011. These have spread across several Institutions- Degree colleges, Polytechnics, ITIs and even Schools, NGOs, Govt. Offices and some Corporates. To date, around 2600000 students and teachers from all states of India, have taken this Software training. Students from rural places have also benefited from this training. Students are using Linux, Python, PHP & MySQL, C/C++, Java and Scilab in their curriculum. Several colleges are going for Lab Migration, which is switching from Matlab (proprietary) to Scilab. Academia is using LaTeX the de facto standard for technical writing. We have dedicated colleges acting as RESOURCE centers in all states of India.

  1. To come into the program a college has to pay Rs.25000/ as a user fee to train students on any number of courses with Certificates.
  2. This distance education method is highly conducive to learn on your own campus.
  3. Once one gets started any student or faculty can master the FOSS and also get certificates.
  4. UG, PG or Research scholar students and even teachers of Science, IT, Engineering, Commerce, Management, MCA disciplines can learn any of the FOSS.
  5. Typically, the first Training at any college is of 2 hours duration. Timing is per the group's convenience.
  6. As a first step, the organiser typically a faculty member must register on the Spoken Tutorial site and become authorised to request and conduct training in his/her college.
  7. Any college which is organising the Training needs to get a computer lab ready with machines that support sound. There is no lower or upper limit on the number of participants. This just depends on the number of computers available. For additional participants, laptops if available can be used.
  8. Support from IIT Bombay is available over Skype, in such cases the main organiser's computer should have a webcam via which the Spoken Tutorial team can monitor the Training and answer questions.
  9. If the participants wish to take the test they must do so a month after the Training.

The organiser can also identify student volunteers to publicise and help with the Training. Students have a lot of energy and are very enthusiastic about such activities. Student volunteers get a special certificate, and a T-shirt! They also develop Event management and Project coordination skills. .

All of the above mean a big deal to students for their career with recruiters and at PG interviews.

Today, SMEs and Govt. departments are moving to Open Source Software like Linux OS. Students with this knowledge will have an edge in the job market. They can also become entrepreneurs and use Open Source Software in their businesses, and save money vs., if they were using commercial software. Net - it is a win-win situation for all. We are having a very good experience with colleges across the length and breadth of India with this format. They start with one and move to cover more batches, more departments, different FOSS series....All working together to Bridge the Digital Divide in our nation.

Progress To Date

The trainings started in July 2011. These have spread across several Institutions- Degree colleges, Polytechnics, ITIs and even Schools, NGOs, Govt. Offices and some Corporates. To date, around 4965000 students and teachers from all states of India, have taken this Software training. Students from rural places have also benefited from this training. Students are using Linux, Python, PHP & MySQL, C/C++, Java and Scilab in their curriculum. Several colleges are going for Lab Migration, which is switching from Matlab (proprietary) to Scilab. Academia is using LaTeX the de facto standard for technical writing. We have dedicated colleges acting as RESOURCE centers in all states of India.

  1. Training Organiser
  2. Training RESOURCE Center
  3. Training Partner

1. Training Organiser:-

Any Staff/Officer/Faculty member can be an organiser for the training. They make the first contact with the Spoken Tutorial team, IIT Bombay. As mentioned, Organisers need not know the Software to be taught in the Training/Workshop. The Organiser will arrange the computer lab and coordinate with students to fix a date and time for the first training. He/She will be in touch with the Spoken Tutorial team, IIT Bombay, on a regular basis to ensure that the training is successfully completed. It is recommended for almost all students in the college to get a chance to take the training. For this, the Organiser should identify faculties from other departments to register and start requesting training sessions. A calender or time table should be made to plan training and tests for maximum departmental coverage.

2. Training RESOURCE Center

Any College / University which wishes to contribute towards IT literacy and awareness can become a RESOURCE (Robust Extensions for Spoken Tutorial project on Open Source Software Usage for Recruitment, Community and Education) Center. A RESOURCE Center can conduct remote workshops in its college, for other colleges and can also train other colleges and schools in conducting Spoken Tutorial training. It can identify training Organisers in Polytechnic, ITI and degree colleges, in and around its district. A RESOURCE Center can create a team of students and faculty members who will work to motivate the colleges to do this software training. Faculty Resource Persons from various places in India are already actively bringing in new colleges. Click here to see the list. In this way, the project can be spread and awareness created in the entire state. Additionally it is expected that the RESOURCE Center will train all its students as well incorporate the Software courses in the curriculum where relevant.

A RESOURCE Center will be awarded an Appreciation Letter from Spoken Tutorial project, IIT Bombay. RESOURCE Centers can mention that they are authorised RESOURCE Centers of Spoken Tutorial project, IIT Bombay on their website and in their advertisements.

3. Training Partner

These are universities and government bodies at state level such as DTE, CET, DET, DHE, VIT, DCE an so on. At their level and because they have a large circle of influence, such bodied can spread Spoken Tutorial based software training in a big way by Awareness - Circulars, Enabling - arranging training and appointing officers at regional/ zonal level, Monitoring - continuously motivating and urging the colleges to come forward and do the Training on their campuses.
