No Disruption in Studies, says Shoolini University's VC on 16th Foundation Day.


SOLAN, India, April 14, 2020 — Ten-year-old Shoolini University celebrated its 16th Foundation Day on April 13, 2020. It was on this day in 2007 that the foundation stone of its first building was laid on the campus at Bajhol, Himachal Pradesh.

Because of the closure of the campus due to the coronavirus outbreak, the University could not organize any festivities. Still, Vice-Chancellor Prof. P. K. Khosla greeted the students, faculty, and the staff through a video call to mark the memorable occasion.

Greeting them on Baisakhi and the 16th Foundation Day, Prof Khosla said he was happy to share that the University had taken the lead over most other institutions in the country by quickly adopting e-learning through virtual classrooms. “We could do as our IT team has been working on this model for quite some time. It was several years ago that we embraced e-Univ technology,” he said, adding that the University was able to start online classes within three days of the lockdown.

Prof. Khosla said that with little likelihood of a return to normalcy in the next couple of months, the University was working on taking end-term online examinations to save the Semester for its diligent students. While tests for the theory portion of various subjects would take place online, practical exams would take place after special practical classes on weekends or during extended University timings, once the campus re-opened, he stated.

To enhance the learning experience of students, the University has also introduced daily Yogananda Webinars for students and faculty. Eminent persons from various fields throw light on subjects of their expertise through interactive media tools. Among those who have participated in webinars so far is the former Delhi University Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Dinesh Singh.

Thanking the students and their parents, as well as the faculty for cooperating during these difficult times, the Vice-Chancellor said the institution is taking measures to ensure that other significant activities of the University, such as placements and admissions, continued smoothly. “Our Placement team has been active since October last year - much before the outbreak of Coronavirus - and has finalized over 200 campus placements. It is now continuing the effort through organizing online interviews,” he added.
