Education: All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has recently begun an e-learning portal Enhancement in Learning with Improvement In Skills (ELIS) to promote e-learning during the COVID19 lockdown period. Aspirants who are missing out on studies can visit AICTE ELIS portal to register for new programs.

This initiative has been started to foster digital learning and support the student community across the country. Several eminent education providers have participated willingly to offer e-courses free of cost for the aspirants to help them cope up with the quarantine period. Find out important information about the ELIS portal, course available, and how to register for it.

The development team was led by Shri Buddha Chandrashekhar, Chief Coordinating Officer, NEAT and NEAT cell team members Dr. Elangovan , Debanshu Srivastava and Baljeet Singh. ELIS portal has been created to provide all students with contents that not only enhances learning for regular subjects but also aims to build up valuable skill sets as required in the actual work environment.

The e-learning content on the portal has been sourced from 18 leading Ed-tech companies with 26 different courses. Under normal circumstances these are selectively available at prices ranging from Rs 5,000 to Rs 20,000. However, all participating companies have offered to enroll students in the present lockdown period without any cost till 15 May 2020. All companies have also gracefully agreed to keep the course free. In effect, there shall be no charges whatsoever to be paid by learners who enroll now till the course is completed.
