My visit to TGES, Rajkot

  • Art on the walls by students

  • The massive assembly. Hundreds of students. Pin drop silence

  • Students sharing the feedback on the quality of learning in the class through a show of hands

  • This hut is a library. And such similar huts are classrooms

My experience with Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC)

Online courses are the future of learning.  MOOCs are everywhere. This is where our students would be.  These are the statements we as educators hear or say very often. But I wanted to experience a MOOC before I could say something authentic. Hence I took up the Inspiring Leadership through Emotional
