Patna: Raj Bhavan has developed a mobile app to monitor attendance of teachers, staff and students at B.Ed colleges in the state.
The app will monitor holding of classes and attendance of students and teachers in B.Ed colleges. Through the app, respective B.Ed colleges will update details of attendance by teachers and students at regular interval. Vivek Kumar Singh, principal secretary to the governor, made the announcement on Friday.
“The app will monitor attendance of students, teachers and non-teaching staff and other functioning of institutions in different B.Ed colleges,” Singh said.
A day before the vice-chancellors’ weekly meeting on Saturday, Raj Bhavan on Friday organised a workshop that was attended by VCs and nodal officers from universities and others.
At the workshop, Patna University pro-vice chancellor Dolly Sinha made a presentation about choice-based credit system (CBCS) being introduced by respective universities from the next academic session. Under CBCS, students’ assessment is done semester-wise with each semester having 15-18 weeks of academic work, which is equal to 90 teaching days.
Also, under CBCS, there is credit, each course being assigned a certain credit. There is also the option of credit transfer, under which credit in a paper can be transferred. Patna University introduced the semester system at the post-graduate level around five years ago.
At the workshop, the university heads were asked to carry out extra-curriculum activities at the university level. Sanjay Singh, director of art culture and youth affairs, made a presentation highlighting various schemes of the Union and state governments to promote sports. At the meeting, the university heads were asked to create infrastructure for construction of swimming pool, indoor and outdoor stadium at the university level.
The varsity heads were also directed to carry forward cleanness drives on their campuses. University officials were asked to carry out the drive once a month along with a plantation drive at regular intervals.
