Commenting on the course, Prof P J Narayanan, Director, IIITH said, “When the lockdown was announced in March, without losing any time, we switched to online and completed the semester in time, with 100 courses conducted by 80 faculty.  All their experiences were distilled into an internal course for our faculty that ran in July. We are happy to see the same now being offered to faculty in other colleges. I am sure this will be very beneficial to the community.”
