IIT Bombay Remote Centre
In June-July 2012, IIT Bombay created history by conducting a mega-workshop on Introduction to Research Methodologies, planned to train 10,000 teachers at hundreds of Remote centers spread across the country. The workshop was conducted in the distance mode, using A-VIEW software and Internet, as part of the National Mission on Education through ICT (MHRD, Govt. of India). More than 8500 teachers participated from over 165 RCs.
IIT Bombay is planning to scale up the project by conducting more such mega workshops in the near future. The number of existing IIT Bombay Remote Centers is inadequate at the moment, to accommodate the large number of potential participants.
A Remote Center acts as the intermediary between IIT Bombay and the participating teachers during the workshop. It is usually a reputed engineering college, with high academic standards, excellent infrastructure and good faculty with expertise and experience of handling workshop subjects, to guide the participants in Lab work.

A Remote Center (RC) is a place from where the participants/people can interact with the instructor (faculty at IIT) who is conducting the course or delivering a lecture from IIT Bombay. The live lectures are transmitted at Remote Centers using A-VIEW software.
The Remote Center (RC) is usually a reputed engineering college with good facility and infrastructure.
It acts as a host for the virtual classroom environment created by A-VIEW. The participant can attend the workshop in a RC close to his/her place. The RC minimizes the logistics of travel, boarding and lodging.
Sagai Ramakrishnam Raju Engineering College is registered as IIT Bombay Remote Centre where workshops happening in IIT Bombaby could be conducted in our institute with Video conference to interact with the course instructors at IIT Bombay
