Prof. Himanshu Rai, Director, IIM Indore, inaugurated the ultra-modern Virtual Learning Classroom Studio at the Sports Complex on September 4, 2020. This studio has been made by Institute’s technology partner VC Now and has been designed taking into account the inputs received from the faculty as well as the participants. Unlike other online or e-learning platform, this VCNow platform is designed on the ‘Philosophy of Not Changing the Paradigm of Teaching for Faculty nor Learning for the Students’. This helps the faculty to teach like they teach in a physical classroom.
The event was attended by Professor Rajhans Mishra, Coordinator, VLPE, and Mr. Darayus Mehta, Founder Director, VC Now, who joined the inauguration virtually.
IIM Indore and VC Now will jointly offer Virtual Learning Programme for Executives (VLPE). Classes of VLPE will be conducted from this studio. IIM Indore faculty will teach from the studio and participants will attend the classes from their home/office using laptop/mobile.
Virtual Learning Platform, used in the studio overcomes barriers of distance, space and time, making IIM Indore’s high-quality education accessible to everybody – thus giving the feel of a physical classroom. In the present COVID- 19 pandemic situation where offline classes cannot be conducted considering the safety and security of the participants, this studio is another milestone in providing world-class education to the participants.
