Nagaland college students ask teachers to provide e-book
Expresses concern over reports of students being forced to vacate hostels, rented houses
Dimapur, March 24 (EMN): The All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has urged the department concerned to notify all colleges to instruct their respective subject lecturers to provide e-book study materials at the earliest.
ANCSU stated this after multiple reports from students claimed that lecturers had not completed their syllabus, when university exams were supposed to be scheduled less than a fortnight away, a press update informed. The union has therefore asked the lecturer to provide study materials in pdf form or study references at the earliest.
ANCSU has also appealed to the department to “take cognizance of the matter” and notify colleges to complete the syllabus on time, from the next academic session, to “facilitate quality education to the student community,” it read.
In a separate notification, ANCSU while appreciating the state government for taking prompt and remedial measures to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, has expressed concern over reports of students being forced to vacate by hostel wardens/house owners.
“It is now difficult for the hostellers or student tenants to go back home as many students are from far flunk areas,” it stated.
The union has requested the government “to provide special transportation/special lodging to those students coming back home from outside the state as they may be stranded in the railway station/airport station due to unavailability of public transport,” read the statement.
Further, the union has appealed to the student community to not panic but “follow all precautionary measures to combat the disease.”
“The college students rather than panicking should be the ambassadors in educating those who are illiterate and are in need to be sensitised about the pandemic,” it read. ANCSU has urged all the students to take precautionary measures and prepare for the exams, while awaiting any information relating to the examination.
In another press release, the union, while lauding the government for promptly addressing the issues concerning the student community, has requested to inform the students about the status of examination schedule at the earliest.
