Uttar Pradesh Technical University (UPTU) is trying to make virtual classroom as reality in UP. The university has embarked to create an information technology hub at Noida. Initially, the hub will cater to ten nodal centres and will be made accessible to 50 other colleges in the state.
Through this initiation, UPTU aims to bring experts from various fields across the globe to deliver lectures and interact with the students. It will create a model, under which a single teacher can connect through video conferencing to all students in various engineering colleges across UP. The move is expected to help reach more students with fewer teachers.
