Covid-19

COVID-19 continues to impact the world severely. Across the globe, the pandemic has transformed our lives completely with the need for personal distancing, lockdowns, and disruption of travel. The higher education sector has been challenged with campuses shut and teaching and learning moving to the online mode. The virtual classroom meant not only the deployment of technological tools but a new pedagogy.

From the very beginning, Ashoka’s response to the pandemic has been swift. The University took a series of actions to ensure a safe and hygienic campus. In less than a week, the university transitioned from classroom teaching to the online mode seamlessly with total commitment from faculty, students, and the administration.

Talking about this, LS Shashidhara, Dean of Research and Professor of Biology said, “Remarkably, the teaching and other academic activities continued uninterrupted showcasing the professionalism of Ashoka and the wonderful human resources we have in the University. The number of emails exchanged to address the problems, real and imaginary, that students may be facing while learning online were amazing. All those were systematically analysed, solutions identified, and deployed immediately. Quality, efficiency, importance to timely decisions, and implementation of right decisions reached by consensus, these are the hallmarks of a great university in making.”

Of great significance in these challenged times has been the contributions Ashoka has made through research and other modes of intervention to the fight against COVID 19.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.
