Things to remember about this ISRO course.
- There is no fee for this course.
- All the approved participants will receive an approval email with their login credentials of the IIRS E-Class platform.
- The E-Class platform will automatically record the attendance of the participant. The attendance is marked as present after 50% duration of total session time. For example, if the total duration of a session is 60 minutes then the attendance will be marked as ‘present’ after 30 minutes of active login.
- Owing to technical problems if a participant is unable to continue the session, then he/she has to watch the same session through the ‘offline’ mode.
- All the participants who are meeting the minimum attendance criteria will be allowed for online examination. The date and time of examination will be notified within 2 weeks of course completion.
- The course schedule, study material, attendance status, and examination schedule will be updated on the same platform.
