Addressing the gathering Satya Pal Malik said that the pandemic has brought numerous challenges to the country’s education sector. The introduction of online teaching has proven to be challenging to both teachers and students alike and this, in turn, has had an effect on the students’ academic growth. The difficulties in imparting online classes heightened by insufficient knowledge of digital methods of teaching have also posed many challenges to the learning process, he added. He reiterated the importance of the seminar in throwing light on the challenges and opportunities of online teaching. 

Prabha Shankar Sukhla in his address said that post-pandemic, the ‘new normal’ is the increased use of web learning tools and e-learning is here to stay. Highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of online learning, he said that in the present situation, the blending mode of online and traditional education is required as it cannot be conclusively said as to when the pandemic will come and end. 

The resource persons for the Seminar were Prof, Santa Ram Joshi, (HOD, Biotechnology, NEHU) and Prof. Subhas Chandra Roy, (HOD, Education, NEIRE).
