IIMT Media & Arts College is a dedicated knowledge hub for animation and new media sciences. The genesis of the college can be traced to the establishment of the Animation training in the year 2006. Later in the 2011, IIMT College was started with a vision to provide state of the art animation training through high-end research and development centre with continuous up gradation. Besides promoting research and disseminating knowledge gained there from, it fosters cooperation between the academic and media communities.

Coming from a legacy of Animation education in its past, IIMT has access to a wide spectrum of industries to enable it to set new standards in the field of media education. The necessary internship and pre placement opportunity is provided to our students for them to get easily placed during their dissertation period itself.

Our relationship, involvement and integration with Animation industry is the most positive critical part of IIMT Media & Arts College. Acclaimed Animation experts have joined hands to support IIMT’s educational plan. The college has equipped itself well with strong Advisory Board members. The IIMTian, who leave after his/her degree or diploma program, shall be tremendously knowledgeable, self-confident and become mature individuals. The college takes efforts to train the mind to think, which is the real meaning of educators. At the very outset, we would like to tell you that we firmly believe education means helping the learners in realizing their self-worth by respecting their individuality. Hence, the ultimate goal of education is the overall development of the student’s personality.
The college encourages the instructors to take feedback from the students on cross model. Under this model the instructor takes feedback from students who are trained by their peers. This system being effectively used, IIMT assures that there shall be good understanding between the management and student.
Young students will often look up to instructors as experts in the field and take to hear most of the things instructors say. Thus, it is believed that spending a fair amount of time and effort thinking about how to respond to students may be a worthwhile time investment. Sometimes the term “feedback” is used loosely or carelessly to refer to what is more accurately called reinforcement.
Objectives: At IIMT, faculty will conduct an open forum where students discuss the assessment with faculty before the final answer key is decided. The college has developed a form that would allow student teams to write comments before the open forum; this shall be piloted with our diploma students. The objective was to evaluate student and faculty opinions regarding both assessment feedback processes.
