The model defines four quadrants of learning, and the content development features that are to be included at each quadrant .The four quadrants are:

1. Basic Learning : This defines self learning by the learners and includes basic learning materials in the form of web based notes (ppt’s) and video lectures.

2. Demonstrative Learning : This stage defines learning through demonstrations with the help of animations, visuals, interactive simulations etc.

3. Supplementary Learning :This stage defines learning by the learners through consulting resources ,where individuals are expected to do some theoretical reading

4. Interactive Learning : This stage defines learning through active interactions between the learners and the content developers/instructors through discussion forums, online quizzes and chats, etc.


VTU was given the mandate to develop content for Quadrant2, Quadrant3 and Quadrant4 in twenty three engineering subjects
