What is EduNxt

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-

  • Offers online learning to all the distance education students of SMU-DE
  • Impart quality education through cutting edge technology
  • Develop a sense of togetherness among the members and different stakeholders of the huge SMU community within the platform.

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:

  • Learn Better
  • Ask More
  • Connect Wider
