Can I access SWAYAMPRABHA Channel Online from Website?

INFLIBNET has developed a web portal for Swayam Prabha. The web portal swayamprabha.gov.in has an archived of telecasted videos which can be accessed online any time. You can register yourself on Swayam Prabha where you can find information on the current and the upcoming programmes lists and time table. One more benefit of Swyamrabha registration is that you will get the information about the upcoming program from the SMS.

Swayam Prabha App Review

INFLIBNET center has also developed an app of SWAYAMPRABHA. You can download it from the Play store. All the current and the upcoming programmes lists and time table can be viewed on the app. You can also watch telecasted videos as archived.

But my honest opinion is that SWAYAMPRABHA app is not satisfactory right now. The app is very slow loading, buggy, sometimes unable to log in. The SWAYAMPRABHA app may be very useful for that learner who wants to learn independently but INFLIBNET has a need to make a better UI and bug fixes and need to do to make a good SWAYAMPRABHA app.

Can I Get Certificate from SWAYAM PRABHA Online Courses?

No. Swayam Prabha only broadcasts academic courses. If you want to get the certificate then register on SWAYAM PORTAL.
