Description of Program / Services:

Project OSCAR (Open Source Courseware Animations Repository) is a large repository of web-based, highly technical material presented in interactive animations and simulations to learn concepts of science and technology. It was launched in 2002 at the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay with the goal of creating and encouraging the open access to products for independent learning and distance education in India and elsewhere. OSCAR materials are platform-free and can be used in any environment, and are also available on CDs upon request.
