The Consortium for Educational Communication (CEC), an Inter University Centre of UGC on Electronic Media has the mandate of Production and dissemination of multimedia educational content on Higher Education.

CEC has also been intensely involved in various MHRD led initiative of digitization of higher education in the country notably E-content, Videos, MOOCs on SWAYAM and DTH channels on SWAYAM Prabha platform, etc.
CEC has developed digital educational content known as E-content in more than 90 undergraduate subjects. The e-contents developed under National Mission for Education through Information and Communication Technologies (NME-ICT) of MHRD, includes approx. 24,000+ learning modules which have been developed by involving more than 2000 finest available teachers of the country. The content has a unique 4-quadrant structure with components like educational videos, e-books, quizzes, MCQs and reference materials, etc. in each learning module. Each learning module is equivalent to 2-3 hours of classroom teaching which may be used by learners as supplementary materials or may be taught to them in blended or other modes.
Further, CEC is making the entire e-content as an open resource available for free access through its website http://www.cec.nic.in. We believe that the entire undergraduate digital content shall benefit our students immensely and help them equip with relevant knowledge and skills. Let’s join hands together to bring the quality digital educational content within the easy reach and access of our students of the teaching community.
