As IMT- CDL director Dr. A.M. Sherry has said "By leveraging the use and power of technology we are striving to bring education right to a student's doorstep." India's pioneer in video conferencing - through its Centre for Distance Learning - Institute of Management Technology has made the world its campus. As IMT- CDL director Dr. A.M. Sherry has said "By leveraging the use and power of technology we are striving to bring education right to a student's doorstep." Dr. Sherry told the Indian Management Conclave 2011, "I think 'dot com' is the new DNA because without this technology and without the power of this technology, such an advanced form of education would not possible." "We were the first in the country to introduce the concept of a digital library in the field of education for 50,000 students across the globe." Video conferencing and online classes remove the physical restraints of providing education. This year, IMT- CDL organized a series of workshops on such things as marketing, human resources, operations research, personality development and communication skill. While the hall the workshops were held in had a capacity of about 300 students, IMT web cast them all. "This experiment proved to be very, very successful," said Dr. Sherry. "Of the 50,000 students at least 30,000 were present online across the globe." Video- conferencing technology is also helping solve issues related to what Dr. Sherry called "the current faculty crisis." He told the conclave "We are now using the WEB- EX system developed by Cisco. With this there is no need of a studio or specific setup to deliver the lecture. Some of our faculty members were at our Dubai campus delivering lectures to 50,000 of our students. With this technology they can also telecast a lecture from their residence." "This is the beauty of technology," he said. "We have solved problems related to the faculty crisis simply, with technology." A student taking classes online can ensure they have a quiet, comfortable, healthy, studying environment and be in contact with experts from around the world via their browser. They can interact with faculty using the using chat function and participate in question periods after class. "Distance learning with us doesn't mean studying alone," says Dr. Sherry. "Our Personal Contact Programmes (PCP), nationwide network of information centres, online digital library, video conferencing, excellent curriculum and a great faculty- student interaction are second to none, no matter where you are in the world." http:// www.imtcdl.ac.in/
