Updated on 23 Aug, 2019


The launch of Innovation Cell and Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA) by the Ministry of Human Resource and Development, Government of India, has generated a need to develop an IDEABANK@IGNOU where ideas from various stake holders and functionaries of ODL system will be gathered, and disseminated. It is also envisaged that a large group of people will collaborate on various projects for the development of an idea into a product or prototype. Keeping it in view, NCIDE has designed and developed on IDEABANK@IGNOU by using the open source tools. The Idea Bank has the following components :
  1. Idea Collection : Ideas will be collected through a web based mobile enabled portal from the stake holders, various ideas already available with NCIDE, ideas generated during monthly innovation club meetings organized by NCIDE and various RCs of IGNOU, various activities of Institute’s Innovation Club established at IGNOU, from entries received by NCIDE for the award for innovation in ODL.
  2. Screening of Ideas : First round of screening of the ideas to be done by experts.
  3. Feedback on Ideas : Discussing selected ideas through web based IDEABANK@IGNOU, and getting feedback from management.
  4. Recognizing Ideas : Recognise the efforts of the ideator and if possible rewarding the idea.
  5. Implementing Ideas : Incubating the selected ideas for prototype development and after successful pilot testing making it part of the current or future innovation strategy of the organization.
  6. Repository of Ideas : Selected and good ideas may be kept in an Idea Bank for use and learning.
