Nepal TU Scores Deal with ‘Microsoft’ to ‘Go Digital’!

The e-learning platforms became the only respite for students and teachers as the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the closure of educational institutes across global countries including Nepal.

There is a sharp rise in e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms.

Tribhuvan University (TU), the renowned university in Nepal, is working proactively to start online teaching and learning amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The TU has successfully completed a deal with Microsoft to develop its own digital domain for almost 500,000 members including over 450,000 students.

The features of the digital domain include-

  • Own domain to store information related to curriculum, faculties, colleges, libraries and other resources
  • Website will have a separate webpage for every college (constituent or affiliated)
  • The enrolled student will get a unique ID and password to access the digital platform
  • Each student will get around 50 GB data to download their curriculum and research materials and to upload their assignments

According to the Executive Director at the Planning Directorate Office, Ridhish Kumar Pokharel, the new system will help in continuing the teaching and learning activities even during the lockdown.

The TU has already completed creating accounts for teachers and students and even provided training to teachers on online teaching. Moreover, it has also initiated the process of procuring high bandwidth servers necessary for the new digital platform.

“We are hoping that the new digital platform will help students communicate with teachers, get research materials and focus on their studies even if the lockdown continues,” expressed Ridhish.
