Also the availability of NEW NPTEL video courses information will be updated regularly in the college sub-domain page, as it helps the college to easily identify the availability of NEW courses created by NPTEL.
Additionally the QR (Quick Response) Code will help the users to access the NPTEL video courses in their Smartphones and Tablet devices when they are within the campus.
