IIT Bombay Became the First Major Institute to Scrap Face to Face Lectures, going for Online Classes. For the first time in its 62-year-old history, the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay will begin a fresh academic year without any students on campus, as it scraps face-to-face lectures for the remaining part of 2020.
The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay has decided to run its next semester completely online, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, becoming the first IIT to take the decision. IIT Bombay Director Professor Subhasis Chaudhuri said ‘the next semester will be run purely in the online mode so that there is no compromise on the safety and well being of the students.’ “The COVID Pandemic has made us at IIT Bombay rethink the way we impart education to our students.
To ensure that our students begin the academic year without further delay, we are planning on extensive online classes details of which will be informed to all students in due in the post-course of time.
Chaudhari said that he did not want any single student to miss out on online classes due to a lack of money while adding that about Rs 5 crore is needed to support students from economically weak backgrounds. “Our alumni have committed a good amount of support, but that is not enough for all these needy students and I solicit through this message your donations, however small it may be,”
IIT Delhi director, V. Ramagopal Rao told that “There is all likelihood that we will run our next semester completely online. All the theory parts of the courses will be taught online and the practicals will be completed once the students are back on campus.” “Looking at the alarming number of cases in Delhi, it won’t be possible to call students back to campus for a long time,” he added. “Ph.D. students will come whenever they have to do some practicals or research-related work. We are thinking that the freshers will be able to join the campus only in December this year.”
