Due to the epidemic, the Indian Institute of Technologies (IIT Bombay) in Mumbai banned the face-to-face lecture till the end of the year. IIT Bombay has become the first education institute in the country to ban face-to-face lecture. Here director Shubhashish Chaudhary said – We will only run offline classes till the next semester. Students will be safe
Will not affect the studies
Chaudhary further said – Due to Kovid-19, the way of studying at IIT Bombay was revisited. We are deciding not to delay starting classes. Therefore, the structure of offline classes is being prepared. All students will get information about this soon.
This is the first time in 62 years
It has been 62 years since IIT Bombay was started. This is the first time classes will start without students. It is believed that other IITs of the country can also adopt this method. IIT Bombay has done online webinars many times before. It consists of unlimited seminars.
Laptop will also be given
There are some students in IIT Bombay who come from poor sections. Director Chaudhary has also appealed to the people for donation of digital devices to these students. He said that laptops will be purchased for students from the funds raised. Internet data will also be provided for class data access. Chaudhary said – Due to lack of money, no student is having difficulty in studies. We need about 5 crore rupees. Alumni have given good financial support.
But, this will not fulfill the need. So I have appealed to all people for donation.
