EduNxtTM is the next generation learning system that takes advantage of modern teaching techniques to create a virtual classroom where students come together to learn from distinguished faculty and from each other. SMU-DE's EduNxtTM was launched in May 2009 by Steve Ballmer, CEO Microsoft Corp. USA and Anand Sudarshan, CEO Manipal Education to fulfil the following objectives-
The EduNxtTM platform is an easy to use delivery system. It creates a collaborative and interactive environment for learning and includes small group mentoring, virtual classrooms, simulation, self-study content, recorded presentations and shared browsing. EduNxtTM functions on the principle of 3 As + 4 Cs. The 3 As of Affordability, Accessibility and Appropriateness are the guidelines to scaling up EduNxtTM across distributed learning. The 4 Cs of Content, Collaboration, Communication and Computing are the basis of developing EduNxtTM into a means of disseminating education among the not-so-privileged or the infrastructurally–challenged learners.
EduNxtTM supports all courses offered by SMU-DE.
EduNxtTM is designed on the following three ideas:
