Jyothy Institute of Technology (JIT) conducts the community development programme (CDP) every year from inception, for rural government school children.  It was a programme with the aim to contribute to the overall development of rural school children.  This year the programme was organized on 27-28th October 2016. The programme consisted of science experiments in the field of Chemistry & Physics of class IX and X as per their syllabi.

The event saw young enthusiastic participants from different government rural schools. The CDP comprising of innovative working models and investigation based experiments were set in the field of Chemistry and Physics, to promote scientific attitude among budding young students, which in turn proved to be a learning experience for them and this CDP was one of its kind.


Thus JIT provided a platform for scientific exploration and innovation to the future scientist. We thank our Management, Principal for being instrumental and encouraging this activity to take place in our College.


Congratulations to the organizing committee led by science coordinators of Chemistry and Physics department teachers and the student volunteers who have worked for its success.

A day workshop on NPTEL – Prof Kamala Sundar, IIT-Madras

Author: Adithya B, Asst Prof, Dept of CSE                                                  Date: 29-01-2016

Although not a new thing, many of us have surely sat through the long videos trying to self learn concepts in our study. A very well articulate and formalized technique by Indian Institute of Technology, Madras is “Technology Enabled Learning”(TEL). Faculty and Students of various graduate study call this by the name, NPTEL (National Program on Technology Enabled Learning).

Prof. Kamala Sundar of IITM, shared stories of how NPTEL started as simply a Web based learning to TV channel Ekalavya to Now a video based TEL. He shared his experience on how the role of teachers has changed from Information delivery to problem solving to designing; eventually inculcating the habit of self learning.

Our former president Dr. Radhakrishnan had said and I quote “A good teacher is the one who makes himself progressively unnecessary in the process of teaching”. In the same lines, I am to now believe NPTEL has contributed enough towards making learning; self learning and the stadium model, as Dr. Sundar call it obsolete. It has given a new perspective and meaning to the word “teach” than it was before.

Dr. Sundar in the second session spoke about a open source Learning Management Tool called Moodle, which is now used at college level in many colleges including Jyothy Institute of Technology. He briefed on various features that Moodle offers how it can be easily setup locally. Not just that, he also explained how 8-9 TBs of NPTEL videos can be made available locally to the students of the institution by simply filling out a on-line application forms and copywriter form.

Overall, A well planned and apt topic by Dr. A N Kumar, Dean, R&D, JIT and well co-ordinated by Dr. Rudresh Kumar, Asst. Prof, Dept of Chemistry; that was needed in the time when the semester is about to begin on Feb 1st. At this point I would also like to put it on record that in JIT, few if us have tried our TEL using moodle and got mixed responses from students. Eventually, students have accepted the model and started liking the technique more than we could even imagine. As an appeal I would request Faculty members to spend some time and build video and web content and make it available online.

Vignanotsava and Abhimukha – 2015

It was a day of great joy and hope. The campus of Jyothy Institute of Technology echoed the bubbling voices of the ever-enthusiastic students of JIT. The stage was all set for the big event – Vignanotsava and Abhimukha, a Science and Cultural fest, organized for the PUC students. This event has been organized right from the inception year of Jyothy Institute of Technology and has brought out the best talents to the fore.

The fest held on 7th September 2015 was a colorful blend of science, culture and sports activities. The event witnessed over 1000 students from various colleges actively participating in competitions like Quiz, Technical Dumbcharads, Mehandi, Rangoli, cooking without fire, Volley ball, Throwball, Badminton, Basketball etc., with a sportive spirit.

Jyothy Kendriya Vidyalaya, Sheshadripuram P U college, R N S PU College (Vijayanagar), Oxford P U College, Vijaya composite P U College, National P U College (jayanagar),   V. E.T P U College, Silicon city P U College, National P U College, Surana P U College, JnanaSweekarDeeksha P U College, S.G.M P U College, V .V Puram Jain P U College, National P U College (Basavangudi),Vijaya Main PU college, JSS PU college, City PU college, ShirdiSai PU college, AMC PU College, Osteen PU college, Jain PU college R. R. Nagar colleges participated in this fest in large numbers.

The prize distribution for the competitions was organized in the Seminar hall at 3.30 p.m. The Dean of Jnana Sweekar College, Mr. B. Karthik Krishnan, graced the function. The Principal of JIT, Dr. K. V. Mahendra welcomed the gathering and mentioned that the number of participating colleges and students have been increasing every year. The Chief Guest congratulated the participants and lauded the efforts of the winners as he distributed the prizes midst cheers from the audience. As the programme ended with a vote of thanks, there were many students with smile on their lips as they left for their homes savouring the taste of success.

At the end of the day, the fest was a day off for the PUC students from their routine hectic academic schedule and proved to be a real stress buster.

The Conveners of this fest Dr. Uma. M. S. and Dr. K. J. Rudresh Kumar would like to thank all the students of JIT and the participants for making this fest a grand success.
