The new programme will be on electric vehicles and renewable energy, design for internet of things (IoT), business and sustainable development on SWAYAM platform.
Courses will be free of cost and taught by IIT and IISc faculty members and interested candidates can register themselves for the course here.
The last date to register for the first phase is August 2.
SWAYAM-NPTEL is currently working with 4,000 educational institutions in engineering, arts, science, commerce, and management across the country, said an IIT Madras professor.
NPTEL provides certificate courses through the massive open online courses (MOOC). Learners have to watch videos, submit assignments on a regular interval and take proctored final exams through the platform. They have to however pay a nominal fee to appear for the exam.
After clearing the exams, students can get their credits transferred once other educational institutes accept them after their enrollment.
The platform has courses from engineering, humanities, basic science and management domains.
