The online portal was created with an objective to monetize the innovation and Lucknow University got copyrights for that.
Prof. AK Rai, Vice Chancellor of Lucknow University talked during the online launch of the portal about the 'future of education' on Saturday.
AK Rai stated, "This is for the first time in the 100 years’ history of LU that a copyright has been registered in the name of the institution."
The Vice Chancellor has informed the reporters," LU has decided to go ahead with the hybrid system even after COVID subsides because the content can also be delivered to students in remote areas."
Any other Institute willing to adopt SLATE could do so only after paying a royalty to the Lucknow University, he added.
