PESHAWAR: The Women University Swabi has started online classes by shifting more than 400 courses of all the 18 departments on Google classrooms and online lectures.
A press release issued here said that in pursuance of the instructions of the government and the guidelines of the Higher Education Commission, in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic the Women University Swabi will remain closed till May 31.
It said that as per HEC guidelines the university has decided to start online classes to conclude the running semester timely and safeguard the precious time of the students as well as to avoid educational loss of the ongoing semester.
It said that keeping in view the internet issue in the country, the varsity has developed course contents that would be disbursed online. These courses would be supported by video lectures, presentations (PPT) and book references which are being uploaded on Google classrooms as well as on WhatsApp.
The practical and lab work that is required for the courses will be carried out once the face-to-face mode of teaching is resumed.
The university has opted use of Google classrooms for delivering content because it is a professional platform (android App is also available) where both teachers and students can have a record of lectures in more organized form.
The platform can be used for future reading as it allows offline delivery of material which can be downloaded over a period. Also, it can be used for uploading assignments and quizzes given the deadline. – APP
