Coaching institutes have gained hugely in stature over the past couple of decades. It is widely considered that getting into a job college in the country or securing a job government job isn't possible without the help of a coaching institute. But this all can change now.
Now students don't need to take private coaching's for IITs as they will get free online lessons from the prestigious institutes' professors. It will be helpful for poor students as IITs have agreed to a government proposal for professor-assisted learning, which will be called IITPAL. This is basically to reduce dependency on coaching institutes, said a senior official.
Former IIT Bombay director Ashok Misra has been put in charge of creating the IITPAL portal. The portal will feature lectures by IIT professors on physics, chemistry and mathematics. Questions and answers from the IITs' Joint Entrance Examination of the past 50 years will also be uploaded. Along with this database of coaching institutes will be provided free.
Students can submit their queries online to professors individually and they will be given assignments. IITs will also launch a mobile app for the portal so that students can read lectures and work on assignments while they are on the move.
