RTU to launch education portal

The Rajasthan Technical University will launch an education website. "Students will get access to quality study material from IIT's and NIT's faculty on all subjects/branches. Experts will also be roped in to highlight special issues," said RP Yadav, vice-chancellor, RTU. The site will have a question bank and students can also post their queries which will be answered by the faculty of RTU. Students will also get access to research work for reference published in reputed journals. Poor results apparently provoked the authorities to take this move. Around 59% students could not clear the first semester indicating the standard of teaching in the institute. Affiliated colleges will have to open accounts for each student on the website.
In order to introduce transparency in colleges, RTU has asked its affiliated colleges to upload the resume of their teachers on their sites. "Colleges can also highlight achievements of their teachers and students. It will bring transparency in the system besides encourage the colleges to offer better facilities," added Yadav.
