“Transitioning to online learning was initially thought to be challenging for a university focused primarily on architecture, design and urban planning. Most of our courses require access to workshops and laboratories or visits to the site location. We are glad that through our collective efforts, the university has successfully met the challenges of online learning while keeping to its original timelines,” said Tridip Suhrud, Provost, CEPT University.
“This recognition is a testament to the excellent efforts put in by our students in continuing the journey of learning through this difficult time.Our faculty members and teaching assistants have gone above and beyond in helping students. They have come up with innovative ways of enriching the e-learning experience for students. The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) and the IT office have played an important role in enabling and facilitating the online mode of learning,” he added.
