CUPID (Common Unified Programs for Instruction Delivery) framework stands for a framework for a new way of instruction

delivery for self-paced learning modules/courses.

The importance of "self paced learning " even in today's new age of MOOCs and social networking based "learning for life "

concepts, is still applicable. "In remote areas and villages, the self paced learning is the standard when it comes to

digital delivery of content. Mostly CBTs (Computer Based Training), downloadable learning materials on CDs/DVDs get most

attention. We can't expect good bandwidth in such a places where the user can take part in online interactive classes. So

after ILTs, the next nig thing is self paced learning through books, magazines, newspapers etc. When it comes to digital part

of such an approach, downloadable standalone digital learning materials win the case.So the fact is "self-paced learning" is

a reality even in the age of social networking based MOOCs."

So one of the focus area of CUPID team is explore possibilities in the education sectors in developing countries, through

exploration of new ways to improve the "self paced learning" domain.

And this is one of many reasons why CUPID focuses on "self paced learning". In addition to that the focus areas in finding

new ways to provide richer "meaningful experience" is what differentiates CUPID from existing approaches through conventional


We are not talking about replacing CBTs/WBTs with something new, rather improving the existing "self paced learning"

approaches with new ways to improve user engagement and bring some reliability to it so that it can open new possibilities

for certification courses to include "self paced learning" as a part of their certifications.

So it's all about the "new and meaningful experience" that we are planning to bring into "self paced learning" through CUPID.
