Kolkata, March 6: As part of its initiative to give a digital boost to higher education, the West Bengal government has decided to set up virtual classrooms in colleges and universities. This will help the students to connect with various other students in universities. Basically a virtual lecture in one institute will be available to other colleges also.
Dr Shukla further added the state-level meet is organised every year to nurture young minds in their pursuit of scientific knowledge and make them aware of the opportunities that lay ahead of them. Of the 1250 research papers submitted by the students to the department this year, 154 have been selected for presentation before a panel of eminent scientists at the two-day meet.
Virtual classrooms were earlier available to other institutes and other states also. This is a new method to enhance the students talent and encourage them to create an environment which will help to boost digital platform for higher education.
