These two programs enable an experimental and exploratory way of learning and preparing teachers for exploratory learning using situated learning designs based on constructivist pedagogy. It also aims to develop a mass Olympiad movement to support multi-level, multi-stage nurturing and assessment of learning. Quality of education in teaching and learning is considered at three levels - content, processes and systems. A program of developing mechanisms, sharable and common wealth is undertaken to support quality in a distributed e-education system. A model of management for working, learning and developing together on an eplatform that offers a level playing field for all is being developed in order to address Indian problems of large numbers, disparities and divides. // Paper ID 566
