Initiatives Taken For Students During Coronavirus Outbreak

06Apr,2020
By Nancy Sinha

Schools, colleges and universities have been closed for the last several days due to the coronavirus epidemic and lockdown situation across the country. Examinations have been postponed in most places. Schools and colleges have not started in the new semester, so students' studies are being affected. Although online classes have been started in some places. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) and the University Grants Commission (UGC) has taken special initiatives. HRD and UGC have released a list of online activities for the lockdown period.

"As we jointly combat COVID 19 by taking preventive and precautionary measures, maintaining social distancing and staying in the confines of our homes/hostels, we can utilize this time productively by engaging in On-line learning," the commission said in a statement. Students can fit them around their existing responsibilities and commitments and can engage with multimedia content and learning materials at whatever time is most convenient to them. Even better: they don’t have to travel anywhere to study, they can simply log in to the virtual campus from the comfort of their own home. By taking an online course, you can really focus on the subject you are interested in and choose from the variety of online courses and programs.
