Amritsar, July 1
Amid the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, the management of the IIM-Amritsar has decided to adopt the digital platform to start classes for its 2020-2022 batch. The admission process too was done through videoconferencing.
IIM-Amritsar Director Prof Nagarajan Ramamoorthy said online classes for the flagship MBA programme would begin from July 13.
It has been proposed to hold tutorial classes every week, besides the regular sessions, to ensure that the students have little difficulty owing to the online mode of learning.
“Some students may face internet connectivity issue at times. We have decided to record all lectures and share links with such students to facilitate smooth learning,” he said, adding, “We have also conducted training sessions to familiarise our faculty members with online teaching tools.”
Mukesh Kumar, media chairperson, said an induction programme had been designed in this regard. From this session, the IIM Amritsar has increased 50 seats and the upcoming batch consists of around 200 students.
