Self Learning Platform at JNU

For the Below Subject your Suggestions and Comments are Invited

Self Learning Platform at JNU


To provide students a common platform where they can share and learn various things among themselves.


  1. JNU is multidisciplinary University, and by this reason we should promote students of different background to meet, interact and discuss about their surroundings and their learning (either from their studies or from their experiences).
  2. Our University allows students to take up courses from different streams, yet many of us don’t know why we should choose one and also which one to choose.
  3. And in many cases, even knowing does not help. The reason for this is that the prerequisites to learn that course are not there. For example a Master’s student cannot learn a language because he is not allowed to take up course for Bachelors’.
  4. At times this is also possible that a student has cracked the JNU entrance, yet he may not know certain basic course(s) that are building blocks of the course, he joined.
