Dr. B. Sendil Kumar, Dean and Director, School of Allied Health Sciences, Vinayaka Mission’s Research Foundation (Deemed to be University) tells about how they transformed education from physical to digital in an interview with Pratik Ghosh, ArdorComm Media Group.
How did you transform the education in your university during the pandemic?
Covid 19 is a pandemic and nobody expected that it would shut everything and the education sector as well. What we exactly did is that we switch over all the education to digital mode because we had already started with the digital mode with the use of software which is LMS platform (Learning Management System) where everything is through that portal. We had started taking that online mode to all the students because already we were trying the faculties and students to get into that, through Microsoft Teams we have started doing that. Apart from that we have asked our students to take up courses like Coursera, edX where they can take up courses which is available in the curriculum. So, by the time students start writing their examination, we have incorporated that in our curriculum so everything is settled properly.
How does this kind of conferences and education summits help the entire education fraternity?
This is a platform where you can meet all the eminent persons and get to know their thoughts and views. Since this is a Covid 19 pandemic so you get to know the information like how other universities and institutions are taking up the challenges and how they are implementing all these things. It’s a good event where we can learn a lot of things, so the takeaways are like we can take a lot of information and we can implement them in our institutions so it’s a great opportunity actually.
