Educational institutes being closed in Maharashtra, it has not stopped students from learning and faculty from teaching all thanks to virtual classrooms and online e-content portals. Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) and several other colleges in the city have gone the tech-way to make sure that imparting of education is not hampered. SPPU on Thursday started an online e-content portal which has more than 1,000 online educational videos, faculty lectures and powerpoint presentations (PPTs) for students.
All the students of SPPU in city and across the state have been granted leave as a precautionary measure to combat the spread of coronavirus. At the same time their education is important and hence, they have decided to start the online e-content portal by SPPU. A separate link of the portal has been provided on the SPPU website on which various undergraduate and postgraduate e-study content has been uploaded. They are working to uploading more e-content for which faculty of all the departments are working from home. They appeal to all students other than SPPU also to take advantage of this portal for their studies.
Similarly, St Mira’s College for Girls has also started online virtual classroom lectures for their students. Most teachers across all streams of undergraduate courses like BCom, BA, BBA, BSc (Computer Science), BCA and postgraduate courses like MA and MCom are using virtual teaching platforms.
