    UGC has allowed 38 universities to offer online degree programmes

    UGC granted permission to 38 universities across India to conduct online undergraduate and postgraduate courses. These higher educational institutions are entitled to start full-fledged online programs without prior approval of the UGC. The UGC decision is part of the policy that education should continue uninterrupted even when all sectors of society are at a standstill. This decision will be one that students will love so much. In Covid's context, the important factors that attract students are the safety of home study and the fact that it greatly reduces the cost of study.
    What is your opinion about this?

    I think we should welcome this decision. It is very good that people can do their Graduation and Post-graduation courses online. The decision of the UGC came exactly when there is a demand for the same. Due to the pandemic, people are not able to move out and they may have more time and maybe spending that time without any work. Now that time can be utilised by them and earn good qualifications.
    But what are the subjects they are allowing online. That is also important. Any subject they can offer online. But they should conduct some contact classes and practical classes in some colleges and universities. So that these students can obtain good practical experience also and they will have better chances to get good jobs.
    But if young people prefer this, they may not have the chance of understanding the social behaviour and group dynamics. So minimum some years of schooling is required. All the high school studies should be classroom studies only. Higher education can be online with limited classroom interaction. That will give always good results. Let is wait and see how people are going to receive it.

    always confident

    This is indeed a great step that is sure to give happiness to the students. For such a big step, many students are waiting for a long time. UGC has always been a respected institution and this step is going to add to the importance of its appreciation. This online education is very necessary for many students and from now on they are not able to complete their education but now with the help of 38 universities their dream will be fulfilled and now they can complete their studies in the career of their choice from any of these 38 UGC affiliated universities.

    UGC seems to have realised the reality and thus agreed to accord permissions to hold online degree programs for 38 universities across the country. For the first time after emergency, the country has been experiencing total choas in education sector and good that fast decisions are now taken giving no time wasted for the students. UGC has been waiting for second wave to subsidize but no vaccine done to students across the country so far and in some states the courts asked the education departments not to open the colleges and thus online courses have become the order of the day and thanks to UGC.
