"Through this new academic initiative, the JNU faculty are actively working to participate in the UGC's Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) offered at its SWAYAM platform," it said.
The initiative will help students from remote regions have access to JNU's vast range of courses, the release said.
The formation of SCEL platform had received nod from the varsity's executive council meeting on November 23.
