Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 3 (IANS) The education grid project (www.edugrid.in) of state-owned Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management, Kerala, has bagged this year's Manthan Award for India's Best e-Content 2007 in the e-education category.

The award, launched in 2004, is administered by Digital Empowerment Foundation, in partnership with World Summit on the Information Society.

A press statement issued here Wednesday said that a panel of independent jurors selected the awardee based on contributions made to bridge the digital divide and how it addresses grass roots empowerment and development.

This is the second Manthan Award the institute has received in the past 3 years. The first one was given for the Thiruvananthapuram City Police Portal for Community Interaction.

The education grid initiative has been evolving systems and methodologies to improve quality of education through technology enhanced learning and teaching (TELT).

Over the last four years, the institute has been involved closely with the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), in which over 320 faculty members in the IITs and IISc have developed e-content in about 230 courses catering to undergraduate engineering curriculum in engineering colleges in the country.
