Quotes

"It means that a student from Burdwan to Bologna can access the same classroom by virtue of a virtual classroom and will be marked on a par with their international peers. These course modules are on an experimental basis, but they will show the light to many others to follow. Depending on the credit hours, an eligible student would be able to switch the major subject" added Dr Hazra
..."Our name is being included everywhere but the UGC didn't write to us," says Kuriakose Mamkoottam of AUD. "We have a three-year undergraduate degree. You get a dual degree if you continue for a fourth year but no-one is admitted into a four-year programme."
...He remarks on how difficult it is to judge the posts, "I have reacted in the past, but for the most part, Facebook is quite unregulated. Anybody can post anything, true or not. People can spread rumours and sometimes even do deliberate mischief. We sometimes can only watch as the arguments die down."
"We are learning from global practices, where students who have been helped this way have in turn enhanced the institution's corpus later. The loyalty component is big, and I see it as inevitable in the education cycle in the country" said S Alfred Devaprasad, CEO of Alpha Group of Institutions
