Tamil Nadu, 27 March 2023: The Consortium for Technical Education (CTE) has extended its support to Annamalai University in Tamil Nadu by installing its CTE LMS Learning Management System platform at the CTE Learning Centre within the Department of Information Technology.
Along with the LMS deployment, CTE has integrated several video-based training courses on advanced technologies for faculties and students. These video-based training courses on Cybersecurity, Cloud Computing, Virtualization, Data Science, Threat Intelligence, Programming, and Web Technologies are accessible to faculties and students. This deployment allows the 35,000 students at the University to access advanced courses to empower themselves by taking ownership of their learning to be successful and impactful beyond the lecture halls.
The Real-Time Course Upgrade feature on the CTE LMS enables the course directors to update additional information within course modules as well as create new courses. As part of the collaboration, CTE will keep integrating additional courses on trending technologies, case studies, virtual labs, and Industry recognized certification courses to the existing digital library at the CTE Learning Centre in the university. These courses designed on new technologies will offer certified students excellent job potential. Furthermore, under the faculty development programme the CTE LMS platform will also be used by the Department of Information Technology to upskill the faculty members.
