This is first workshop where teachers from non-engineering streams at Avinashilingam University participated. The feedback from such a heterogeneous group is of great value.
Some of the very good feedback from the participants:
- Such a multipurpose platform is the need of the hour when every institution is going for ICT-based teaching.
- The resource persons were proficient. They also answered our questions patiently.
- Being a teacher with much outreach activities, I am really benefited.
- Being a B.Ed teacher, I can use the virtual classroom during our ‘teacher-training’ sessions at schools.
- Thanks to A-VIEW and Amrita. Our hats off to the team who did this excellent job.
- Very user friendly and excellent platform for teaching.
