How to Collaborate

Educational video programme production is a collaborative activity between the production team of the Centre and academics and researchers of universities and research institutions. The Centre welcomes academics and researchers to provide ideas which could be converted into video programmes. If the ideas are found to be exiting and workable, they may have to develop content covering various aspect of the idea. In most cases, especially in the areas of science and technology, they have to set up experiments in their laboratories and provide other materials needed to convey the content. All collaborating academics and researchers are paid an honorarium as per UGC guidelines.

Several academics and researchers of the University of Calicut and other universities and research organization located within and outside Kerala have been actively collaborating in the production activities of the Centre.
