The main purpose of conducting online activities is to keep the students involved in academic activities, says the vice-chancellor

The authorities of Dhaka University (DU) have asked all its institutes and departments to start online academic activities from the first week of July despite limited capability. 

DU made the decision on Thursday, hours after the University Grants Commission asked public universities of the country to submit “tentative financial requirements” within two weeks.

The decision to start online classes was made at a virtual meeting to review the progress and feasibility of online classes, chaired by DU Vice-Chancellor Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman, said a press release signed by DU Public Relations Officer Mahmood Alam.

DU officials at the meeting thanked those who have already started conducting online classes and urged academic authorities to extend a helping hand to underprivileged students who do not have internet or other necessary electronic equipment.

A committee headed by Prof ASM Maksud Kamal, newly nominated pro-VC (academic), has been formed to formulate policies for conducting online education activities and report on financial assistance issues, including the construction of an IT infrastructure.

DU VC Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman said: “We have already started online classes at multiple departments. We have instructed those who have not started yet to start the classes as much as possible by the first week of July. 

“The main purpose of conducting online activities is to keep the students involved in academic activities. Tests will not be taken, only classes,” he added.

Deans of faculties, chairmen of departments, directors of institutes and the two pro-VCs attended the meeting, among others.
