http://www.bninstitute.org/bnpgcollegefaculty.html

In 1923, it was under the patronage of the then prince, and later, the 75th Maharana of Mewar. Shri Bhupal Singhji, those two devotees of education and learning. Mamaji Maharaj Aman Singhji of Ralawta and Rao Bahadur Th. Raj Singhji of Bedla, initiated this institution as a Primary School (Court of Wards' School). In 1929. This school was upgraded as Bhupal Nobles' High School and then to graduate and post graduate level, affiliated to Mohanlal Sukhadia University of Udaipur, Rajasthan, India.

BNPG College, (Affiliated to Mohanlal Sukhadia University) Udaipur (Rajasthan) India

Course Goals :
(ABCD Model)http://ets.tlt.psu.edu/learningdesign/objectives/writingobjectives/
  • Cognitive (comprehension) level:The new myths are to be explored to integrate tradition with technology in ELT at urban area colleges, because the teachers still feel incapable to bring argumentative and analytical application of IT in ELT. 
  • Cognitive (application) level: This follows pro-active approach while teaching course of their syllabi with the help of social networking resource enterprise. 
  • Cognitive (problem solving/synthesis) level: To have open course-ware that can be accessible by the students living in any corner of the state, district, village or the country. 
  • Psychomotor level: To emphasize that the interaction on the websites can be used for creative skills in teaching and learning activities in colleges for ELT. 
  • Affective Level: It would focus on the usage and application of language skills to create environment in the classrooms as well as to develop the sense of receiving and transmitting education to students.

Students needs and issues to start this project

The language teaching and learning in higher education especially in business schools i.e. professional and technical oriented educational colleges has adopted cyber and virtual school platform. The regular professional and technical colleges also do have computer- based training and computer-supported collaborative learning. The reason is it has become convenient to receive education and knowledge from home and the far locations. Secondly the students with learning difficulties and disabilities or have limited language proficiency, get the preferential interventions through such virtual learning environment. 

They are able to disseminate not only knowledge of the structure and its usage, but they also have the chance to go through the formative assessment of their knowledge about the language and then to follow –up with the summative assessment that consists of the   recapitulation- questions and there is system of multiple choice and objective pattern of testing that helps the students to use their level of cognition, comprehension and cogitation. 

The E-learning negotiates linguistic and cultural differences and it broadens cross-disciplinary bases for learning to understand and apply it in one’s own context. These benefits are drawn through such computer softwares that promote guidance, governance and control the performance of not only the learners but also of the teachers or tutors. Both the working units realign their goals, outcome, process and performance with education sector and English language teaching becomes the goals of leadership and the reputation of business metric. Even the corporate sector CEO Michael Schuter conforms to “the language acquisition in order to have productive and dynamic workforce through the implementation of the virtual language training on a company wide basis” (Livemocha, CEO, First Annual Seattle Interactive Conference, 2011).
