TUF Successfully switched to Online Education amid COVID-19 lockdown


As COVID-19 pandemic has spread across the globe and posturing a serious threat to our health, security and lives, our education system has also faced unprecedented challenges. Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan has asked universities to “engage faculty and quickly develop online courses and disseminate those to the students in view of the coronavirus situation in the country”. According to HEC, “COVID-19 pandemic has endangered us all and online education is the solution for the safety of the faculty and the students.”

As a result of COVID-19 lockdown, education system has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms. Responding to the situation, Management of TUF organized training sessions for faculty in use of Google Meet and Google Classroom softwares while TUF faculty members were already well-trained in its Learning Management System (LMS).

With the availability of all possible resources, TUF was able to launch online classes from 16th March 2020. TUF faculty continued and sustained teaching by way of online classes, assignments and assessment tools and students forged ahead in e-Learning capabilities using these softwares. Following “Stay safe, stay connected”, now TUF is keeping its students successfully ahead in the times of pandemic.
