NPTEL is an acronym for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning which is an initiative by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) for creating course contents in engineering and science. NPTEL provides E-learning through online Web and Video courses in Engineering, Science and Humanities streams.

NPTEL Open Online courses were initiated so that students anywhere can directly learn from faculty in top colleges. While enrolment and learning is free, students can also obtain a certificate from the IITs, based on successful completion of an exam, for which there is a nominal examination fee. Online learning offers a new way to explore subjects that one is passionate about.

Students will learn for free, Learn Together and Learn from the Experts. The courses have no eligibility criteria and are open to anyone and everyone. Students can review and assess their progress and directly interact with course instructors to understand concepts better. An optional in-person proctored certification exam is offered at the end of the course to earn certificates from the IITs.
