NEW DELHI: While it took many days for some colleges/educational institutes to execute e-learning and online processes amidst the COVID-19 lockdown, Shoolini University boasts of executing it with much ease and well in time. Recently, the university celebrated its 16th Foundation Day and Vice-Chancellor PK Khosla greeted the students, faculty and the staff to mark the memorable occasion.

Sharing his thoughts on the occasion, the VC said he was happy to share that the university had taken a lead over most other institutions in the country in quickly adopting e-learning through virtual classrooms. “We have been able to do so because our IT team has been working on this model for quite some time. It was several years ago that we embraced e-Univ technology. The university was able to start online classes within three days of the lockdown."

He further added that with little likelihood of a return to normalcy in the next couple of months, the university is working on taking end-term online examinations with the aim of saving the semester for its diligent students. While examinations for the theory portion of various subjects would be taken online, practical examinations would be taken after conducting special practical classes on weekends or during extended University timings, once the campus re-opens.

In order to enhance the learning experience of students, the university has also introduced daily Yogananda Webinars for students and faculty. Eminent persons from various fields throw light on subjects of their expertise through interactive media tools. Among those who have participated in webinars so far are former Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Dinesh Singh, former IAS officer and inspirational speaker Vivek Atray, film critic and technocrat Pavan Jha and the 21 Notes Valmiki Ramayan creator Yashoodeep Deodhar.

Shoolini University is taking measures to ensure that other significant activities of the varsity including placements and admissions continue smoothly. “Our Placement team has been active since October last year — much before the outbreak of Coronavirus — and has finalised over 200 campus placements. It is now continuing the effort through organising online interviews,” he added.
