Finally, Virtual classroom's concept will come in reality for the students of engineering and management colleges in Uttar Pradesh.
The virtual classroom concept was first proposed by Uttar Pradesh Technical University (UTPU), but it didn't took off well, so it was put behind the curtains, five years back when it was proposed.
But the experts didn't loose hope and after working on the project for five years, they came back with the plan which is much more solid and firm than the previous one. In Nodia the first virtual classroom studio was inaugurated on Monday for training teachers for the virtual classes.
The vice-chancellor of UPTU, RK Khandal says, "the recording of lectures will begin shortly as studio for faculty development has already come up. Soon, virtual classes for students will be in place." The equipment required for the virtual classes are already installed only the software is yet to be finalised, the officials informed that.
After the Noida studio, five more studios will come up in government colleges across UP. The MoU has been signed between UPTU and and National Institute of Technical Teachers Training and Research, Chandigarh for virtual and real classes
