Teaching and Learning process by NIT through online mode

NIT Trichy has developed a dedicated web portal for uploading the course materials for the benefit of the students. The study materials such as Power Point presentations, lecture notes etc. are uploaded on this portal and students are accessing the study materials using their official email ID credentials from various parts of the country and abroad. Students have also been recommended appropriate online courses in SWAYAM portal for cross references.

Apart from the above arrangements, the faculty members are conducting online lectures through Video Conferencing. Since good broadband connectivity is not available everywhere, recorded online lectures through Video Conferencing are also sent to the students.

Faculty have also used other platforms such as google drive, google classroom, Email and Whatsapp. Students are encouraged to clear their doubts from the faculty concerned through any electronic mode. The students are submitting online assignments which are considered as internal assessments.

As online study modules are not sufficient for laboratory and project work, it is suggested to provide some contact classes after the institute reopnes (a few days depending on the exact date of resumption) with a modified academic calendar, so that the remaining laboratory experiments and project works may be carried out.

The institute is also exploring the possibility of conducting online Exams, if the lockdown period is extended further.

Dr Mini Shaji Thomas,Director, NITT requested all the faculty members to develop innovative methods for teaching learning process adopting electronic mode. This will engage the students and effectively utilize their time for learning the subjects during this lockdown period.  The Institute is also augmenting the facilities for conducting online classes, she added.
