Watch Vyas Channel live from India
The Vyas Higher Education Channel is dedicated to the students studying their degree courses in universities and colleges. The curriculum which is being followed is based on UGC model curricula and CBCS compliance. The scheduling of the channel is based on the step scheduling format.
The pedagogy or approach to impart education, which is being adopted to create dynamic step scheduling, is to provide a variety of the content and flexibility to view the content. This will certainly provide freshness to the scheduled content with its unique vertical placement. It will also break the monotony of horizontal repeats and provide more opportunities and flexibility to choose the desired time and day for the students to view the desired programs.
