The F-TEL approach has taken the cue from recent change in UGC policy of allowing use of MOOCS (Massive Open Online Courses) up to 209% of courses. MU has devised e-oriented curricula keeping Policy parameters in mind. MU besides well written text will deploy Webinars, audio and video lectures and online journals. The delivery of curriculum includes classroom inputs, work exposure and the quality time at home. Therefore the physical presence of the candidate in campus may enjoy marginal advantages.
