The Mahatma Gandhi Institute (MGI) is an academic institution providing education to students at Secondary and Tertiary level and was established in 1970 under an Act of Parliament. The promotion of Asian languages, Music and Dance and Fine Arts has been one of its motto and it has left no stone unturned in accomplishing this task since years. It also fosters for academic researches at all levels by highly dedicated academics and students in various fields. According to its Strategic Plan, one of its strategic goals is to develop an ICT Culture in one and all to reply to the various innovations and technological needs that come across in the administrative and academic cadre. Adhering to this strategic goal, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed on 28th April 2005 in Mauritius between the Mahatma Gandhi Institute (MGI) and the Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL), Mysore, India (under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India) with the aim of setting up a Language Resource Centre (LRC) at MGI. This collaborative academic programme propagates the cause of Indian language languages at national and international levels and among the Indian Diaspora. The LRC has played an active in accomplishing this task through its various projects, workshops, seminars, training sessions, etc... Furthermore, for the first time, the MGI is transmigrating towards ELearning and Distance Education mode through its MOODLE E-Learning platform (Introductory courses in various Asian languages, Hindi, Urdu, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Sanskrit, Bhojpuri and Modern Chinese) to open its gateway of knowledge in the educational cadre again under the full support and coordination of the LRC..


Established in 1976, the School of Mauritian and Area Studies has served as a focal point for research on Mauritian history, geography, culture, literature, religion and social dynamics. With its constituent departments the SMAS runs several courses and research projects. A major focus is research and teaching on Indian Ocean migration streams, integration in settler societies, diasporic networks and cultural productions. Today the School of Mauritian and Area Studies is adopting the MOODLE E-Learning Platform to offer courses online.
