5. Development and realization
of Virtual reality laboratories.
One point DEIS would like to explore is to set up a Virtual

video, interactive tools etc. would be available so that
the learners in the distance education system ,those in
remotely located educationally backward areas can reap
the benefit as well.
b) The Virtual Science Lab, will essentially comprise
of a user friendly graphical front-end, working in synchronization
with a backend, possibly consisting of a simulation-engine
running on a server.
c) The exhibits will be housed in an exhibition centre
mode and open to students and general public.
d)Other than this we could also take help of some specialized
students from engineering and other management or training
institutes as part of their internship program and use
their help in the development and building of relevant
technologies and programs.
Explore, research and study of new technologies that can
be adopted for enhanced use of ICT in education.
b) TV episodes would be planned to spread awareness about
New Technologies for ICT in education.
c) Exploring, researching and studying of Edu-entertainment
and gaming for knowledge enhancement.
d) We could also explore certain popular user friendly
internet websites like Facebook and Orkut to reach out
to a larger mass of students.
e) Other than this we could also take help of certain
specialized students from IITs and other management or
training institutes to spread awareness and also use their
help in the development of certain technologies and programs.
7. Development of software
controlled hardware programming for robotics.
Design Programming for Robotics is a specialized area
of programming involving the integrated knowledge of both
hardware and software into a working robotic system
- DEIS’ knowledge in this field is limited but,
to offer an integrated and synergized result, DEIS is
willing to explore the subject, if it is necessary for
improving the effectiveness of the other items enunciated
will explore other new areas for contributing to national
development depending on mutual discussions with professionals
