He said: “We have also developed a virtual class schedule for courses with class sizes of about 1000, 3000, and 5000 students, using the large capacity zoom licences.

“Physical delivery of lectures/practical sessions in classrooms/laboratories is very important and should be consciously sustained”.

According to him, in the wake of the transportation challenges facing the students and staff of the university, the management rolled out several measures to mitigate the effect of the unfortunate situation on the students in particular.

“These included the directive to the Time-Table and Room Usages Committee to adjust the lecture time-table to make it more flexible.

“The management also renewed the university’s zoom licences to activate the virtual lecture option,” he said.
