Delhi University is becoming cooler and more student-friendly to keep pace with Generation Y. It has just introduced e-classes. Students and teachers can now be a part of a virtual classroom.
“This will overcome the restraints of a one-hour class, where there are 40 students per teacher,” says AK Bakhshi, Director, Institute of Lifelong Learning. “In an e-class, every teacher will have a webpage, through which they can interact with students.”
There are various modules under an e-class, such as quiz module, assignment module, chat module and forum module. Teachers are excited, but students seem to be divided over the issue. “E-classes will help us clear doubts even when we are not in the college,” says Harshita Sethi of Bhagat Singh College. “Initially, everyone will be interested in this, but then, with time, I am sure there will be no update and stuff,” says Judith of student of Jesus and Mary College.
