A Complete List of SWAYAM MOOCs

Dhawal Shah

SWAYAM is an ambitious upcoming MOOC platform by the Indian government. Under SWAYAM, professors of centrally-funded institutions in India — such as Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), and central universities — will offer online courses to citizens of India.

You can read more about SWAYAM in our deep dive that Class Central published last week: SWAYAM: Inside India’s Massive Bet on MOOCs

Last month the Government of India released a list of MOOCs that will be offered on SWAYAM. You can find the PDF here.

The PDF is a bit difficult to read, so we transcribed the PDF and have reproduced the course list below.  Some parts of the PDF were still difficult to read, so there might e

The course list is segregated by “National Coordinators”. Each co-coordinator tasked is with creating online courses for a  particular segment i.e Engineering, High School etc.

        @Gopalkrishna P..V
        Do not mean to be offensive or rude but based your comment you definitely need some English writing and reading classes. Experiences of life can be absorbed and shared with better sophistication if you can write and comprehend clearly. I’m not good in grammar that is the reason why I came here to look for a good class 🙂 Good luck.
