Four Anna University campuses may go paperless by 2023.
What’s it about? With the plan to go paperless, students at the campuses can view scheduled classes, lesson plans, and exam grades online. However, exams will still be offline. Credit goes to a digital platform developed over the past couple of years as a gift from the 1971 batch of the College of Engineering Guindy. It will be unveiled at the golden jubilee celebration on December 19.
- The university digitised some activities concerning admissions, exams, and research. However, it wasn’t integrated and continued to depend on paperwork.
- Students can view relevant courses across semesters accessible on their mobile phones.
Who said what? Mohan Eddy of the 1971 batch said the process could become automated and not rely on paperwork. Another alumnus RK Shankar said professors could give online assignments through this platform. Vice Chancellor R Velraj said it’d take 3-6 months to adapt, and the university will be paperless by July 2023.
