    The Academic Council, Cotton University, in its meeting dated 21st February 2020, has adopted MOOCs for Credit transfer


    National Education Policy 2020 emphasizes that online education provides a natural path to increase access to quality higher education. Therefore, Technology-based education platform, such as SWAYAM, has been better integrated with Cotton University so as to enable its students to reap the benefits of user-friendly and qualitative content.

                  In the year 2020, (JULY-DEC semester), under the UGC (Credit Framework for Online Courses through SWAYAM) Regulation, 2016,  277 students of nine departments successfully passed the final MOOCs exam and thereupon, credit was transferred from SWAYAM to their Cotton University Grade sheets under the Credit transfer system. For which, Cotton University was adjudged as the Best Local Chapter in Arts, Science & Commerce category in the entire country for Jan-Dec, 2020.

                  Likewise in 2021(JULY-DEC semester), under the UGC (Credit Framework for Online Learning Courses through Study Webs of Active Learning for Young Aspiring Minds) Regulations, 2021 (so far), 264 students of nine departments successfully passed the NPTEL MOOCs exam, and thereupon, credit would be henceforth transferred from SWAYAM to their Cotton University Grade sheets under the Credit transfer system.  Another set of 530 students of 10+ Departments, Including Research Scholars of all Departments, would appear in the NON-NPTEL MOOCs exam under the Credit transfer system in the coming weeks.

                 In 2021, (so far), under ADD-ON courses,   174 students of 8 Departments successfully passed the NPTEL MOOCs exam. Another set of 58 students of 4 Departments enrolled in NON-NPTEL MOOCs as ADD-ON courses & would eventually appear in the NON-NPTEL MOOCs exam in the coming days.

                 In the recently released list of the top 100 SWAYAM-NPTEL Local Chapters of the entire country,(as per the SWAYAM NPTEL Local Chapter Ratings for the Jan+Jul 2021 semesters), only two institutions of North East India figure in the same:-

        Cotton University secured the 58th position

     
    Last year (Jan+Jul 2020 semesters), Cotton University secured the 63rd position while Tezpur University secured the 67th position in the list of the top 100 SWAYAM-NPTEL Local Chapters of the entire country.
                                                                            It may be pointed out that even though the students of Cotton University did not enroll in the MOOCs in the January semester, 2021, still we could manage to get the 58th position for the overall Jan + Jul 2021 semesters, & that too, simply on the basis of enrolment in the July 2021 semester.
