Research in Education: MSR India Initiatives


March 12, 2014


This session will cover 2 community initiatives MSR India is currently driving.

Massively Empowered Classroom

The best engineering jobs in India (and around the world) demand graduates with more than just a degree in CS or EE. The best jobs are going to candidates who can demonstrate that they really understand their discipline. Microsoft Research India is excited to introduce MEC (short for “Massively Empowered Classrooms”), a research project designed to bring the highest quality classroom material to every undergraduate engineering student in India. MEC is geared to be a fun, social, and interactive learning place for students and teachers! Many features distinguish the MEC from a traditional online learning platform. This semester, MEC will be offering Design and Analysis of Algorithms course, aligned to the curriculum of RTU.

Research Connector

Research Connector is a community initiative by Microsoft Research India focused on creating research awareness, opportunities and a bridging platform between researchers, academicians and students currently pursuing CS-related courses in India. In this session, you’ll get to know how you can also get involved and work with other Researchers from the research community.
