यह पाठ्यक्रम हमें आधुनिक भारत के बारे में एक संक्षिप्त विवरण देता है। और उसके साथ यह भी दर्शाता है कि किस तरह से भारत आज एशिया का एक प्रभावशाली आर्थिक और सैन्य सत्ता बन गया है। इस पाठ्यक्रम की शुरुआत हम भारत के बहुभाषी समाज पर चर्चा से करेंगे।   

यह पाठ्यक्रम हिन्दी और अंग्रेज़ी दोनों भाषाओं में उपलब्ध होगा।

इस पाठ्यक्रम का केंद्र बिन्दू भारत के समकालीन मुद्दों का विश्लेषण करना है। इस में भिन्न-भिन्न दृष्टिकोणों से विचार प्रस्तुत किये जायेंगे कि भारतीय संस्कृतियाँ और भाषाएँ किस तरह से टेक्नोलोजी में आई तेज़ी से प्रभावित हुईं हैं। इसके अलावा हम इन विषयों के बारे में बातचीत करेंगे: राजनीति और राष्ट्रवाद, अर्थशास्त्र और अर्थव्यवस्था के उदारीकरण से हुये परिवर्तन का असर, सुरक्षा, भारत की विदेश नीति और क्षेत्रवाद। इन सब के साथ हम यह भी देखेंगे कि दक्षिण एशिया की राजनीति में भारत ने क्या भूमिका निभाई है और उसके पड़ोसी देशों के संबंध में विचार करेंगे। इस पाठ्यक्रम का उद्देश्य है विद्यार्थियों को भारत के बारे में विस्तृत जानकारी देना ताकि वे ज़्यादा अच्छी तरह से भारत और विश्व में भारत की भूमिका को समझ सकें।

I have just completed this course and am very impressed. ANU and the course team did a fantastic job of expanding MOOC's into a multi-language format and bringing this course to the world. There is so much to discuss and explore on India that it was impossible to go in depth and I would love to see a Part 2, 3 & 4 to go even deeper into the subjects raised. In the time available the lecturers covered many disciplines and provided a great overview. The discussion forum in this course added to the depth by sharing information with Indians taking the course. The course team did a great job in fostering discussion to better utilize this resource and energy so as to improve the overall value of the course. Their innovation in this regard was very successful. I have not seen other MOOC's mobilize discussion as effectively. KUDOS to the course team and thank you for an informative MOOC.

This course looks really interesting! I'm re-reading a couple of Rohinton Mistry's novels right now and I've always been fascinated by the history and culture of India.
