BSMRSTU Corresponden: Online education activities will start from October 18 at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman University of Science and Technology in Gopalganj. AQM Mahbub said a meeting with the chairpersons and deans of all the departments had decided to start online classes in all the departments from next Sunday (October 18) and notices would be sent for online classes in all the departments within the next two to one days.
Asked if the university authorities are taking any steps to provide low-cost data and interest-free smartphones, he said, “It has not been decided yet. It is not possible to do anything quickly if you want to. It is a matter of time. However, we have sent the list of poor students to the University Grants Commission (UGC). Now we will act according to the decision they make. We hope that these online classes will be regular to keep the educational activities of the students active ”
Earlier, as per the instructions of UGC, BSMRSTU had started online classes on an experimental basis from July 1. At first the student participation rate in the classes was 50-60 percent but at one stage it came down to less than 10-20 percent. As a result, almost all the departments except three to four stopped taking online classes.
