IIT – Indian Institute of Technology is one of the premium Indian educational institutions. Only the best of the students graduating from high school get into it after rigorous screening.
I went to school right across from IIT Chennai and always wondered what it would be attend classes there.
Now, thanks to a program called National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning, we have access to hundreds of lectures from the 7 IITs on various subjects for free in YouTube.
You can access these lectures at http://www.youtube.com/user/nptelhrd#g/p
This channel provides technical lectures from all seven Indian Institutes of Technology and Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
The Video Courses are organised as PLAYLISTS under the following Categories:
1. Core Sciences
2. Civil Engineering
3. Computer Science and Engineering
4. Electrical Engineering
5. Electronics and Communication Engineering
6. Mechanical Engineering
As a Database Administrator during the day, I was really excited to see what it would have been to take those database classes in IIT Chennai!
