The safety of the PES University (PESU) family comprising of our students, staff and the community around us is our primary concern in these challenging times. We acknowledge these extraordinary circumstances that we are in and continue to stress that our students use caution and care in participating in the PESU activities.
PESU has continued to innovate during these challenging times to boost the productivity of our student community. PESU Academy, the digital avatar of PESU provided a number of learning alternatives to our student community.
One of our leading learning initiatives has been the PESU Live Classes. We are providing our students with a timetable of live online interactive classes being conducted daily by our faculty in the confines and safety of their homes. Students can attend to these live interactive online classes based on a timetable similar to how they would have done so on a normal schedule. At the time of this writing, PESU has already conducted over 2000 live classes.
These classes are providing an enhanced experience for the students, which includes a two-way communication option with the professors. Students could chat with the professors, can ask questions during the live online class and also have the access to learning material.
This has been possible because all of our classes over the past four years have been recorded and digitally archived by the Impartus platform. This is a testament to PESU’s commitment to provide a seamless digital experience to our students. We promise that this will only get better with time.
In addition to these live interactive online lectures, our students have number of other learning and entertainment options to choose from PESU Academy:
PESU Academy Live: Live Interactive Online classes with professors teaching from their homes
PESU Academy Archive: Recorded versions of these lectures available for students to watch at their convenience
PESU Academy Forums: An online forum dedicated for each subject for students to post their questions/doubts which will be answered by faculty
PESU Academy Edmodo Platform: The Edmodo learning management system operated by faculty where students will participate to submit assignments and other deliverables
PESU Academy Impartus/Skype/Hangouts/Zoom: Collaborative platforms like Impartus, Zoom, Google Hangouts are being used to collect feedback on 8th semester projects, mini projects and team related deliverables
PESU Academy Mobile: A platform where students can access classes slides, learning material and also live and recorded videos from their smart devices
PESU Live Entertainment: A platform aided by Impartus provided for students to compete with each other in various cultural/technical activities. These are available for the whole student community to participate or be a part of the audience to encourage their fellow mates
We sincerely hope that each one of our students take advantage of these resources and enhance their knowledge and be entertained in these trying times. We hope PESU will be able to make sure that we contribute in every which way possible so that the time lost does not translate to careers being lost. However, safety will always take precedence over time and careers. Wishing you many happy days of learning in these challenging times. Take care.
