The courses offered under the GIAN initiative (Global Initiative for Academic Networking) of the MHRD, bring in international experts to deliver short term (5 – 10 days) course on emerging important research areas. These are open to professionals from both academic and international fraternity, as well as students. The GIAN courses are offered for credit and usually involved a substantial hands-on component as part of the course.

The goal of CDEEP is to offer courses to a large number of participants across the country. Each course is offered through video broadcast lectures supported by course handbook. The broadcast is through satellite transmission to a large number of registered Remote Centres (RCs). Each RC projects the lectures on the screen, in a classroom for upto fifty participants guided by a local supervisor. Participants have the opportunity to ask questions during the lecture, which can be immediately answered by the distant instructor, as in a real classroom."
