Swayam: Learning App by Government
Swayam is a programme initiated by government of India and designed to achieve the three cardinal principles of education policy, viz., access, equity and quality. The objective of this effort is to take the best teaching-learning resources to all, including the most disadvantaged. 
 
This is done through a platform that facilitates hosting of all the courses, taught in classrooms, from Class 9 till post-graduation, to be accessed by anyone, anywhere, at any time. All the courses are interactive, prepared by the best teachers in the country and are available, free of cost to any learner. More than 1,000 specially chosen faculty and teachers from across the country have participated in preparing these courses.
 
The courses hosted on Swayam are in four quadrants—(1) video lecture (2) specially prepared reading material that can be downloaded/printed (3) self-assessment tests through tests and quizzes and (4) an online discussion forum for clearing doubts. Steps have been taken to enrich the learning experience by using audio-video and multi-media and state-of-the-art pedagogy/technology.
