New Delhi [India], Sept.19 (ANI-Businesswire India): NIIT.tv - a disruptive innovation by NIIT, has won the prestigious award for educational technology, at the Indo-American Education Summit 2016. The award is a recognition of NIIT.tv's effort to make quality skill-based training available to every digitally connected Indian anytime, anywhere using a cutting-edge technology platform.

Organized by the Indus Foundation, an association dedicated to the promotion of higher education in India, the Indo-American Education Summit recognizes the achievements of some of the finest universities, colleges and institutions by presenting Awards for Educational Excellence annually. The Summit 2016 had sessions on collaborative research programs, joint/dual degree programs, twinning & transfer programs, faculty & student exchange programs, study abroad in India programs, distance education programs, vocational education programs, and other academic partnerships.

NIIT.tv is an internet TV portal that can be accessed on a computer, tablet or smartphone anytime, anywhere. It is a democratic digital learning initiative, backed by NIIT's strong Educational Technology framework, that was launched in October last year with an aim to bring high quality training from its classrooms to every digitally connected learner, for free, at any time, place and language of their choice. The platform has received an overwhelming response with a total of 469,145 registered users from 160 Countries.

Speaking on occasion Udai Singh, Head, New Business Initiatives, NIIT Ltd said, "This award is an acknowledgment of our commitment to offer job-focused skills training to the large under-skilled population of India, with an aim to create a globally competitive workforce for the emerging Indian economy. I wholeheartedly thank Indo-American Education Summit for this encouragement and recognition."

Since its launch in October 2015, NIIT.tv beta program has progressed well. Based on feedback from learners and the growth of courses, the course catalogue has been enhanced, an intuitive learning dashboard has been introduced, and the proven cloud courseware system from NIIT's Cloud Campus has been integrated into NIIT.tv. Also the NIIT.tv Android app is now available on the Google Play Store for free download. A course configurator has also been created to enable independent authors & subject matter experts to offer their courses on NIIT.tv.

Over the last 35 years NIIT has contributed extensively to the IT sector by training 35 million people in IT and other disciplines. As a socially responsible corporate citizen, NIIT with the launch of NIIT.tv is now committing to extend that experience and expertise to service the needs of India in many other sectors, across the entire social spectrum. With over 200 people working on education-technology, NIIT is a leading EdTech company in the country actively involved in offering technologically advanced learning products and services to its customers.
