Abstract: Dissemination of high quality education to a large number of geographically spread participants is an exciting and stimulating challenge. Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, successfully deployed a novel satellite-based model of Distance Education Program (DEP) from 2002. The key objectives of DEP are to not only impart quality education to a large number of participants but also to provide a live two-way interactive classroom environment. The feedback from the participants shows that DEP has been very effective for enhancing the expertise of a large number of teachers from other regional colleges as well as working professionals. In this paper we discuss the key features of DEP – Interactivity, scalability and reusability. The underlying economics that arises out of scaling the program and the current status of the program are also briefly discussed. Given the benefits of live interaction and peer-to-peer interaction that the model supports, we feel that such a model can be easily adopted by other institutes elsewhere.
