In a first, IIT-Bombay will be starting its academic year without students on campus, as the institute has decided to scrap all of its real-time lectures for the rest of the year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

After the announcement of Director Subhasis Chauduri, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Mumbai, Maharashtra, has become the first major educational institution in India to have let go of all face- to-face lectures in 2020.







Chaudhuri said on Wednesday night that IIT-Bombay would now implement its teaching “purely in the online mode”, to not compromise on students safety, a report by the Indian Express stated.

He said the institution had been made to rethink the way education was imparted to students, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The details of “extensive” online class details will be given to students in due time, Chaudhuri said in a Facebook post, adding that IIT-Bombay wanted to ensure the beginning of the academic year without further delay.
