Center for e-Content Development

The Beginning of a New Era – Windows to the Digital World  

Chavara Computer Centre was started in 1990 at Sacred Heart College, catering to the needs of the times for both staff and students. In tune with the current advancements in ICT enabled teaching learning processes, Sacred Heart College initiated a Virtual Learning Centre (VLC), late in 2008. It had a modest start by introducing a media-equipped learning centre called the Marian Hall (Gallery 1). Lately, the college is in the process of developing E-learning modules which is proving to be beneficial for faculty as well as students

During the year 2009-10, smart boards (Interactive white boards) were installed in a number of classrooms to make the classes more technology enabled and multidimensional with the possibility of real time interaction with experts as well as referring to online sources on the spot. Student assignments and seminars, in some cases, are also being done through smart boards. PPT presentation, accessing internet became a part of their ICT enabled teaching learning process.
