Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Friday said changing the mindsets of both teachers and students is important for the introduction of online classes and exams at public and private universities of Bangladesh.

“Although we have faced some challenges while introducing online classes and examinations, but we have to overcome them as we have no other option,” she said during ab online webinar titled “Coping with COVID-19: Higher Education Challenges and Responses in Bangladesh,” reports BSS.

“The Covid-19 situation will not go away overnight. In this situation, we can’t make the future of our students and the new generation uncertain,” said the minister.

Dipu Moni also said the country has made significant advancement towards digitalization, but public universities are yet to digitalize.

“We can arrange training programs for teachers if needed, and can help students by providing smart phones to those who are unable to afford them,” she said.

DU Pro-Vice Chancellor (Academic) Dr Nasreen Ahmed, Dean of DU Faculty of Social Sciences Dr Sadeka Halim, Chairman of the mass communication and journalism department Dr Kaberi Gayen also addressed the program, organized by DU Faculty of Social Sciences and Microgovernance Research Initiative.
