It has taken quite some time, but the results of the online survey on how the Department's online classes were experienced and evaluated by students has now been turned into graphs, screenshots and a text version. The top three key insights:

  • While some students seriously suffered from the lack of socializing through online classes, by and large most classes seem to have been ok.
  • Hardware is a problem for a number of students, making it difficult to participate in virtual classrooms, but internet connectivity is a much bigger problem.
  • Student/student interaction in large groups - viz. seminar discussions - is a problem to instructors and students alike. While some suggestions are made how to alleviate this, there seems to be no perfect and ideal way.
