Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu has asked the Universities and other educational institutions to harness the power of technology to ensure continuity of academic calendar during the lock-down period.

Mr Naidu interacted with the Vice Chancellors of Delhi, Puducherry, Punjab, Makhanlal Chaturvedi Universities and Director of Indian Institute of Public Administration through a video conference today. He urged the institutions to reach out to students by utilizing technological tools to ensure interactive learning.

Mr Naidu appreciated the universities for taking adequate steps to ensure that the teaching-learning process was not hindered during the lock down. He said, online courses would supplement face-to-face learning.
