Many universities and educational institutes have switched to virtual mode of convocation after holding live convocation was not possible due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Last year, IIT Guwahati Professor MK Bhuyan of the electronics and electrical engineering (EEE) department and two of his students Snehil Sanyal and H Pallab Jyoti Dutta had developed an online platform for the virtual event. “As students were unable to be physically present at the convocation due to the Covid-19 scenario, we decided to create a virtual presence experience for them and the teachers,” said Bhuyan.
