Ranchi: City-based unit of the Steel Authority of India (Sail)-the Management Training Institute (MTI)-has launched the e-corridor system to facilitate the institute to have audio-video session from any top institution of the world for exchange of knowledge.

Launching the facility from New Delhi and having a live chat with MTI officials at Ranchi, Sail Chairman SK Roongta said that that the facility marked a new initiative in technology enabled learning at MTI and would enable the participants at the institute's programmes to interact with eminent speakers from other locations globally.
The video conferencing facility will support multiple locations connected together to create virtual classrooms with people located in as many as 16 locations.
It can connect to different locations which has the video conferencing facilities either through Internet protocol (IP) system or telephony (ISDN), giving MTI more flexibility in connecting to different locations.
Along the e-corridor, the participants would be able to go to the upgraded computer lab of MTI, which has the latest Xeon-based server and Core2Due Processor based PCs connected in a network not only to each and every computer in MTI but also to the Internet through a high speed broadband connection.
The PC lab could also be used for providing training on Sailnet, the countrywide intranet of Sail. The lab has also been upgraded with the state-of-the-art projection systems and an ambience that reflects excellent standards.
It may be recalled that the MTI and the IIM-A, have come together to address the challenges of human resource development and to enhance requisite skills for meeting the current industry gaps. __._,_.___
