At the same time we must adhere to all protective measures against Corona disease for our personal, families and communities well being. Do help out your parents, siblings, children, elderly people and neighbours in coping with any kind of difficulties.

NUTECH Take Initiative Steps for Students during COVID- 19
Consequent upon adoption of measures to cope with COVID-19 and to prevent it spread among the students and the faculty, NUTECH has adopted the e-learning education system for its students. The purpose of this e-learning environment is to ensure uninterrupted educational delivery to the students while not compromising the quality of education. NUTECH has adopted a multipronged approach for online education to bring it at par with the on campus learning as far as possible.
Video lectures have been recorded for all the courses offered in the interrupted Spring – 20 semester. Learning management system (LMS) has been deployed in the NUTECH data centre to aid online education. All educational content including the video lectures have been uploaded to LMS for easy access by the students. Besides, the content is also being couriered to the students on storage media to alleviate the problems related to internet connectivity.
Live sessions are also being conducted through video conferencing platforms like MS Teams/Zoom in which students have the opportunity to resolve their queries and to reiterate their key concepts by interacting with their teachers directly. To cater for the needs of student’s lab courses; virtual labs are being conducted through videos, simulation software etc., so that students theory is supplemented by the lab exercises as far as practicable.
Through an e-digital library system, students have access to all reference material as per the requirement. Library VPN services have been made functional for connectivity to HEC digital data bank. Furthermore, NUTECH library’s integral digital data bank has been enhanced several times to support the NUTECH’s endeavors for continued learning.
While traditional, on-campus learning will inevitably return to prominence once the coronavirus abates, NUTECH continues its efforts by implementing innovative and proactive measures to provide the best e-learning environment to their students.
