BENGALURU: Karnataka, which was the first state in the country to start Edu Sat programme (satellite-based education) at higher education level, is now planning to introduce interactive smart classes for polytechnic college students.

The state Department of Technical Education has asked all the government and aided polytechnic colleges in the state to conduct interactive classes, and also to utilise the infrastructure already in place for Edu Sat classes.

"Existing set-up and equipment won't change. The interactive smart classes will, however, allow students to pose questions and get their doubts clarified too," said HU Talwar, director, Technical Education department."Till now, students were only listening to the subject experts delivering the lecture from a studio set-up in Bengaluru."

The development follows the report submitted by a committee constituted by the higher education department during 2016. A few major recommendations of the committee included switching to two-way communication set-up and allowing students to ask questions during the classes. The interactive classes will also help colleges overcome the shortage of faculties.
