Registration and Enrollment Process
Registration for this mega workshop is a five stage process.
A growing list of all applicants is maintained on the workshop web page.
A ‘status’ value is maintained and displayed for each applicant. The 5 stages in the process are described below:
Preliminary Enrollment: This is the first stage in which a person,
eligible to attend the workshop, fills up the on-line enrollment form.
The applicant is provisionally enrolled. The name is included in the list, with the status ‘(P) Enrolled’.
Enrollment confirmation: An email is automatically generated at our end,
and is sent to the applicant at the indicated email-id.
It informs the applicant about receipt of the form, and contains a ‘link’.
Applicant is required to ‘click’ on the link. After this stage, the applicant’s status in the list is changed to ‘Enrolled’.>
This process is necessary to prevent possible misuse by hackers with mala fide intentions,
who may fill up multiple forms giving arbitrary email-ids.
Approval of eligibility: Our team will carry out a preliminary scrutiny of the submitted credentials.
Once it is determined that the applicant is prima facie eligible, the enrollment of the applicant is provisionally confirmed.
The status in the list is updated to ‘’Elig. Approved,’ and an email is generated and sent.
No further action is required at this stage by the applicant.
Note that the certificate of permission from the Institute is ordinarily scrutinized at this stage.
Since this requirement is diluted for this first mega- workshop,
this checking will be done before the certificates are released by IIT Bombay.
Provisional confirmation: After the last date of enrollment, eligible applicants are allotted to an available remote centre.
An email is generated and sent to the applicant giving this information. And the status is updated to ‘Prov. Confirmed’.
Final Confirmation: The mail sent as above, also contains a userid and password,
which provides access to the backend learning management System of the workshop (which is based on the ‘moodle’ package).
Applicant is required to log on to that system, and change his/her password.
The enrollment and registration process is now completed, and the candidate should report to the allocated Remote Centre for the workshop.
