NPTEL - a Brilliant Initiative by IIT, IISc and Govt. of India

For everyone like me who's lost touch with some useful and important subjects in school and college AND who wants to go back and refresh those subjects here's a supernews. I was randomly searching for an online free course/tutorial on FETs ( Field effect transistors ). I found one in How stuff works site, one of my favorite site. But I wanted to get a video and not read through. Somehow I find listening and understanding more easier compared to reading.

Then I thought...how about Youtube ??? So immediately I went to youtube and typed in the needed..EUREKA !!! I was shocked..I found some excellent lectures by some eminent professors belonging to various IIT institutions in India on the related topic. My first thoughts were that these are leaked videos by the IITians. Digging further I came to know that its a joint initiative IIT and IISc, funded by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India, called "National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning".

Here's the youtube channel for the same videos ( much easier for searching topics )

My wholehearted appreciation to MHRD, IIT and IISc for this great venture on promoting higher education in India. Every year millions of people try to get into IIT schools, and only few thousands make it. With this youtube channel, now everyone can get IIT education from some of the best professors in the world.

Hats off to everyone for making this possible !!!
