CHENNAI, 27th February, 2014: ICT Academy, Tamil Nadu (ICTACT) signed an MoU with Classle Knowledge Pvt. Ltd., on
26th Feb, 2014 to improve the quality of education and employability of students. The first activity envisaged as a part of this partnership is to offer Course+ in about 40 subjects for students pursuing higher education in the realm of Engineering and Science. While these courses are available to both member and non-member institutions of ICTACT, there are special preferences and concessions for students of member institutions. With ‘Gamified’ Course+ delivered in a MOOC-like fashion, ICTACT aims to make a direct impact on a large number of students in acquiring high-quality education as well as employment. To support the vision and aspiration of this partnership, a special instance of Classle’s ‘Carry-Along Cloud Campus’ has been created. This instance is unique to ICTACT and will be available as ‘SkyCampus’. As a unique feature, SkyCampus will also be connected to and be a part of Classle's social learning network. Commenting on this, Mr. Sivakumar
(CEO, ICTACT) said,“ICT has changed everything, including the way education and learning happen. This partnership is unique in the fact that it does not only bring immediate benefit to the learners in their core academic subjects using ICT, but also in a fashion which is 21st-century ready. That way, this partnership is both transformative as well as value adding.”

This partnership increases the scale and scope of ICT Academy’s activities by some orders of magnitude at the same time, makes it economical and goal achievement focused.”
