S P Jain School of Global Management (SP Jain) yesterday announced the launch of its Engaged Learning Online (ELO).

According to a media release sent to Human Resources, the comprehensive technology initiative aims to bring a classroom-like learning experience for students to learn online from anywhere. This helps empower professionals who balance their time between work, social commitments, and career developments.

ELO uses a blend of emerging technologies to bring in the rigour of an in-class engagement online. Students can log in from any part of the world and get all the benefits of an on-campus education – in real time.  They can interact with faculties, share ideas with their peers, collaborate on assignments, and even break out into teams to discuss and debate.

The first programme to be launched through this unique technology is the school's part-time executive MBA (EMBA) programme which is expected to commence next month.

Other innovations on campus is the Engaged Learning Classroom (ELC). Aimed at increasing engagement between faculty and students, the app allows students to virtually raise their hands to ask questions, message the faculty, participate in quizzes and polls, get into break out rooms, and use advanced note-taking capabilities including recording, drawing and sharing of documents in real time.
