Is an interesting approach that combines online educational material and opportunities for interaction online with traditional place-based classroom methods. While it is imperative that students still attend classes in a “brick-and-mortar” set up with a teacher donning the role of a facilitator present. The face-to-face classroom practices are combined with computer-mediated activities with regards both Content as well as Delivery.
As the name suggests it is model of Learning where a Traditional Process is amalgamated with New Age Learning Models and the advantage of this Model of Learning is that provides the students to learn in a Practical as well as Theoretical Manner. There are various Models of Blended Learning that the student at PIET are exposed to; to name a few :
- The “Face to Face” driver – where the teacher drives the instruction and augments with digital tool.
- The “Rotation” based model where the students are made to go through a schedule of Independent Online Study as well as an Interactive Classroom cycle.
- The “Flex”based model is used to promote Higher Order Thinking; in this model some part of the curriculum is delivered via the Digital model and the Teachers provide Face-to-Face Consultation and Support.
- The “Lab”based model is a vital part of the Learning Model as this where the Students usually learn as a mix of Theory and Practical based sessions.
Finally the “Self Blend” model this is a Learning process where the students have the opportunity to augment their Learning through Online Course Work. To mention some of the Tools that are being incorporated at PIET so that the entire process of “ BLENDED LEARNING” fulfills the desired objective of creating Students who are “Thought Leaders” and drive “ Change” as a function of their differentiated Learning and Thinking process. To enlist:
- Instructor – Delivered Content
- Live/Online Sessions with Facilitators
- Use of Face book/Chat Rooms/Blogs/You Tube to augment Learning
This is one of the most interesting and exciting ways of Learning. The Students at PIET have made the most of this innovative model of Learning. As the name suggests it is an Inversion of the Traditional process of “Class Room Based” Learning.
To explain the Concept of Flipped Learning in brief
A Flipped classroom is an instructional strategy that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering the instructional content, outside of the classroom.
The process shifts activities including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. In a flipped classroom, students are made to collaborate and partner in Learning by means of watching Online Content, Video’s and Discussing Cases as well as Problem Statements.
The Topical research is carried out a place outside the Class Room Environment while the mentor/facilitator guides the students about the Content in the Class Room.
This mode of Learning by purpose shifts instruction to a learner-centered model in which time in the classroom is used to explore topics in greater depth, while the students are provided with the Textual content beforehand so that they can come to the Classroom in a prepared mode for Conceptual Discussions.
As is the case with a flipped classroom, ‘content delivery’ may take a variety of forms so at PIET, often video lessons prepared by the teacher / guest faculty / experts are used to deliver content along with online collaborative discussions, digital research, and text readings may be used.
Given the saying “Experiencing is Believing” we at PIET invite Students as well as Educators to come and see for themselves the New Age Learning Models and Tools being used to impart World Class Pedagogic Delivery to the Students as well as the community of Researchers.
Learning Management System through M-TUTOR
Interactive e-educational resources prepare the students for the forthcoming lectures and make them understand the classroom lectures in a better way. There is a dire need to introduce a platform that brings a transformation in learning beyond classrooms by thought based audio-visual stimulation. PIET understands the growing needs of the students of this digital era to survive in this competitive world. Hence, PIET has partnered with MTUTOR, which is India’s first digital tutorials package for higher education developed as per University curriculum.
The tool is loaded with the rich graphic-aided content to make learning fun and easy, and is a value addition to the conventional classroom teaching. This increases the retention power of students and makes students skillful and employable. Features like assessments and tests, live chat, ask-a-doubt and question bank, make it even more powerful and impactful for upgrading students’ performance.
Lecture Capture System (LCS) through Impartus
PIET is the first engineering institution in Haryana which joined hands with Impartus and introduced the lecture capture system at large scale in the teaching learning process. The lecture capture system by Impartus at PIET is a cutting edge end-to-end solution to automatically record the complete classroom experience. The platform also enables students and professor for collaborative learning by sharing content. This facility is used by all the teachers.
Indian diversity has a great pull to galvanize people from all the corners of the world and make them feel at home. PIET is a bouquet that includes unique and great flowers of various cultures on its vibrant Campus.

Quiz Assessment Tool
Teachers in PIET also use an assessment tool called Plickers for a quick and simple way to check student understanding. This assessment tool allows teachers to collect on-the-spot formative assessment data without the need to have students use devices or paper and pencil. In order to engage the students in active learning, Plickers usage in the classroom found to be very beneficial at PIET. Students find it easy to use as it helps them answer the questions anonymously. It may also be mentioned that its incorporation has increased the students’ participation. Teachers get opportunity to evaluate the students as to how well they understood the course content.
Handwritten Answer sheets Assessment Tool
We at Panipat Institute of Engineering and Technology, has adopted the AI based method for internal assessment examination evaluation. The method adopted is quite fast than conventional method of evaluation as it consumes less time for evaluation. Employing the rubrics for solution of question paper enables to evaluate the answer sheets in a small fractions of time. For this method at first answer sheets are scanned via ADF scanner, followed by selection of exam and student set, the evaluation process is started.
After mapping of student answer sheets and question paper, it becomes easier to see the answers of all student set for a particular question which is a remarkable feature of this system as it reduces the problem of context switching. Another beauty of this system is we can see the average marks for the particular set of questions and question paper as well. To add on this system also able to depict the total number of students who appeared with respect to strength of students in that particular class.
