Students were told to provide their email ids to their respective departments. Head of Physics Department, Professor Basanta Sharma while speaking to the media said that teaching a science subject online is different from teaching an arts subject as you need to draw up diagrams and explain scientific theories by using mathematical formulas and calculations.
The registrar also added that the time slots provided 40 minutes although it has been extended to one hour due to the technical issue especially due to the disruptions in live streaming and sound.
Head of Chemistry Department, Professor Mukherjee added that most of the students have stated that poor internet connectivity, especially in rural and hill areas, is a problem in the interaction process. He pointed out that in Chemistry and Physics, online classes cannot reach the level of satisfaction compared to humanities as they particularly require explanation based on mathematics calculations, drawings, symbols, molecular structure, formulas, etc.
