2 min read

Mysuru: Academics has taken a backseat with schools and colleges shut – following the government direction – in this time of Corona scare. Exams have been cancelled and postponed for high schools.

But this has not stopped the faculty of ATME College of Engineering in the City from continuing with its academic activities. For, the college is making best use of the remote technology available to reach out to students wherever they are.

Understanding the need of remote learning at this time of crisis, it is exploring technologies like Zoom, to conduct online video conferencing, web conferencing and webinars to ensure that students are not left out from their curriculum. Besides, the Google Classroom too has come handy to the faculty as they can streamline classroom, manage coursework, create classes and distribute assignments. What more, teachers can also provide grades to the assignments done by students, send feedback and have everything in one place, virtually.

To manage virtual classroom and keeping students engaged in a simpler way, the faculty is also using Edmodo.

While theory classes can be taken care of, the challenge lies in holding laboratory sessions. They are using virtual lab to conduct lab experiment and many more.

Apart from this, WhatsApp and e-mails and college CERP is also being used extensively to share the course contents and other information to students from time to time.

“It is not a recorded session we are transmitting. It’s a live streaming with the real time participation of the students. With tools like EDMODO, ZOOM, etc, students can ask doubts while the faculty is teaching – just like the real classroom. The session is also recorded and the same is hosted on our website for the benefit of students who could not make it to the online session,” said a press release from the college.

“Ever since the government declared closure of college due to COVID 19, we have been conducting online classes. Hence, there is no major disruption academic activities. Even the Lab experiments are conducted by the faculty members virtually and the same is uploaded on YouTube for better understanding of students,” the release added.
