Online Delivery of Lectures Through ICT

In view if Corona Pandemic, Govt. of India and State Government ordered for shutting down the university for face to face teaching. Though this has hit the normal working of university and paralysed the day to day working; Galgotias University handled the situation in its own stride.

Galgotias University cares for well being of all stake holders; but to prevent the academic loss it took proactive steps by conducting all the lectures by remote mode. Just before the complete shutdown, detailed planning was done about usage of ICT platforms and its effective use for delivery of lectures across all schools from 16 March 2020.

The university extensively used ICT resources with its own ERP software extension Big Blue Button for conducting the classes as scheduled in regular time table. Especially free online tools and applications viz., Zoom, Google Class room, Microsoft teams, Edmodo etc were used by faculty for conducting the online lectures without incurring any cost. In response to this initiative the students and parents responded positively and connected from across the nation to actively participate in the proceeding of the classes. The online lectures were conducted across multiple platforms that include desktops, laptops, tabs and mobile phones. Multiple methods and tools of teaching learning such as Flip Class, Power point presentations, online whiteboard, recorded videos and tutored lectures were used by faculty.

The strategic planning with all faculty and students has turned out to be successful. After almost two weeks; it's observed that online lectures have been adopted really well by faculty and students across 21 Schools and Departments of university. More than 119 programs engaged the students through online classes as per the regular schedule. The interesting fact is that the students responded very positively and university maintained about 90% attended the classes.

University also ensured that the students are absorbing the lectures really well by continuously assessing the performance. The students are evaluated through online quiz and MCQs, Assignments and live Projects. The attendance for all students is marked on basis of their online presence and completion of course wise tasks. Post graduate students and PhD Scholars are called online for periodic review presentations, duly attended by Deans, external experts, Faculty and fellow scholars. University is handling students' queries online and has provided them with solution.

Meetings for academics and administration are also conducted as scheduled. Going one step ahead, GU Centre of Excellence for AIML conducted online workshop for faculty members of university.

This is a big step forward in handling any calamities and teaching remotely in the event of a disruption to normal operations on University's campus. Hon.Chancellor Mr.Suneel Galgotia, Hon.CEO Mr.Dhruv Galgotia and Hon.Vice-Chancellor Dr.Preeti Bajaj applauded the initiative and hard work of academic and support staff of university.
