In this lockdown period, where all the universities shut down worldwide, to avoid the loss in studies as well as in academics, Maharaja Ranjit Singh Group of Institutions, Indore at this critical time has adopted the online teaching pedagogy.
To take a step ahead than coronavirus, here faculties are preparing video lectures at their home following the lock down observed in city, and transmitting it through Google drive. Time for query solving is already mentioned on WhatsApp group made class wise. The fliers regarding video uploading subject wise is being made public through WhatsApp group.
Online teaching this proves to be boon in this crucial time, being utilizing the lockdown period at home in a constructive way.
After this endemic session get over and all the universities will reopen and regular working would take place, students and faculty rather than being panic would be at ease. Examination and other evaluating system would be smooth without any hindrance.
That time would be utilized in counseling the in-house students and footfalls for their career planning.
This is the basic funda of disaster management that alternatives should be stress upon in critical condition so that routine is being carried on in creative and constructive way, rather than having chaos and mismanagement.
