The main thrust of the SET's work is on production of Computer Aided Learning materials (in the form of CAI packages including Multimedia and Web-based packages) for an Open Learning Environment. In recognition of the University's activities in this respect, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India identified Jadavpur University in 1988 as one of the centres of research and development in the area of Education Technology.
In the 2000-01 session, the School has started a new interdisciplinary 3-Semester (1½ years) Masters Degree Course, the first of its kind in India, entitled "Master in Multimedia Development". The UGC has sanctioned financial assistance including 2 teaching posts (1 Professor and 1 Reader) for the course.
