Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bhubaneswar, has started courses for the new academic year for new students (MTech, MSc and PhD) as well as their on-roll students amid the covid-19 epidemic. The institute said in a statement that instead of being face-to-face on campus, all classes will now be conducted through live streaming.
The meeting was delayed for three weeks
The current semester started on time, this time with a delay of only three weeks compared to the normal situation. Later on, the students are brought onto campus with an SOP as a permit if the situation improves. Regarding this, Director Prof. RV Rajakumar said, “Now there are only B.Tech classes left. Students from 2020-21 have yet to start.” Noting that the JEE Mains and JEE (Advanced) exams are due to take place in September, he said the institute will be accepting the students and starting classes after a few months.
Classes will be online due to Corona
On the other hand, Prof. Kumar said of learning in online mode: “Due to the epidemic, the institute has decided to start a new academic year in online mode. It also has some drawbacks and some advantages. We should strive to reduce losses and increase profits. Learning is an important part of education and therefore a student’s role is very important to success as a key player, said the director.
