After one month trial of online classes for MBBS, the Vardhman Mahavir Medical College (VMMC) attached with Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi will begin its regular online classes from May 1.
The Urology department will start online teaching from May 2. The classes had abruptly been stopped following the lockdown to contain coronavirus.
An online class has several pros especially during the time of social distancing. Highlighting some of these points Dr Kumar said, “This is a good usage of technology for educating the students during the lockdown period. However, we do not know the level of attention that the students will be able to give during the online classes.”
A calendar will be prepared similar to that of classes before lockdown to intimidate students about subjects, the professor said.
