Switch to online classes or abandon the semester – HEC tells universities

HEC issued a detailed report on the subject, penning down necessary instructions for universities. 

As uncertainty prevails related to the COVID-19 lockdown in Pakistan, Higher Education Commission (HEC) asks universities to switch to alternate methods. The education authority directed to either opt for online classes or abandon the semester.

A number of schools in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) have already started online courses, despite the government declaring advance summer vacations until the 31st of May. However, this step has widely been criticized as it is being seen as a move to justify fee collection while the education institutes are closed.

HEC issued a detailed report on the subject, penning down necessary instructions for universities. 

“If lockdown restrictions are lifted by early June, universities can return to business as usual. But if there are further delays, there will be no choice except either to switch to online education or to abandon the semester,” HEC Chairman Dr. Tariq Banuri said.

“Fortunately, online interaction provides a vehicle for doing so. Accordingly, HEC has asked universities to prepare themselves to transition to online classes and online interaction as quickly as possible,” he added.

  • What the Hell is Hec Doing??
    We’ve paid heavy fee to study
    I know its a time of crisis but it doesn’t mean that we have to sacrifice our studies and also give fee.
    Hec should promote us to Next semesters because it is the only possible and reasonable way of solving this situation
    A semester might be a 6 month time period for Hec higher officials but they should ask about this to the students graduating or the parents who are burning there blood for the study of there children
    Studying online is not convenient enough as we have not paid for this.
    An what kind of teachers ask there students to drop the semesters just because they don’t a facility like internet
    Shame on You Hec.
    I See How you Guys Are helping students and making Pakistan Proud….You guys Are not worth being officials.

  • No way online classes are useless agar online classes sy he sikhna tha toh hum university gaye hi q degree toh online course karny sy bhi mil jati hai.

    • It is a temporary measure for few months….and no bad at all …. Uk, usa, australia are following the same.

  • Online classes are good experience. I find no difference between physical class room and zoom. It is flexible and interesting. Prof. Dr Nasrullah Khan Comsats University

    • ڈاکٹر صاحب پڑھنے والے بچے پڑھ رہے ہیں اور یہ جتنے بھی شور مچا رہے ہیں نا ان کو اپنے ماں باپ کے پیسے کی کتنی فکر ہے یہ سب اچھی طرح جانتے ہیں۔ ان کے ساتھ بحث کرنے کی بجائے ان سے کہیے کہ یہ لوگ اپنی پچھلےسمسٹرز کی مارک شیٹس اپلوڈ کریں اپنے کمنٹ کے ساتھ ۔۔ ساری اوقات کھل کر سامنے آ جاے گئ۔

  • Online classes should be abandoned as we have not proper facilities to take online classes. students are going into the depression due to the HEC.if you agree with my comment so like it and tell the hec we can not take online classes.

  • Obviously we have to go for Online classes if lockdown situation remains the same, even small schools are still teaching students then what is the problem with University students ? Do you silly guys know what promotion means ? It means 2.0 GPA ….atleast we are not tolerable with this I get 3.8+ GPA , and my aim is 4/4 this semester. Stop this nonsense please grow up. Its your degree not a joke. We can request for YouTube channels by teachers or Google classroom can be better.

    • Seriously? the world is dying out there and you are planning for the future.Dunia dari ki b had hoti ha, 4/4 kabar py likhwana ha kya?

      • Bro you are university student and a Muslim first. Haven’t u read First verse of Quran and Hadith about Compulsion of Education. And here you talking about Graded on Grave, Our parents invested their Halal earned money on our semester fee. What would we and of the Question that Your parents invested on u Halal money You wasted that though you were young and had resources to make it useful by completing the purpose. …. This is not love of world Youth it’s what our Duty is. We should be Thankful to Allah we are safe and recovery from virus is way far too much.Don’t waste your Time

    • Exactly.. now we have to abilities to self study so online classes otherwise on the base of assignment semester passed away.

  • Online education without having faculty training on this type of education, curriculum development, interaction facilities, access to internet by students from rural areas & faculty will be a joke HE sector. 35% of science subjects rely on lab work. How it will be comunicated/managed through online education.

  • Hec is doing all this wrong bcz we can’t understand anything on WhatsApp bcz online calsses are on what’sapp and pdf is sent and we are asked to cram it …this is not fair …how lab work will be online ??? Koi aqal ko hatk maroo ….we are future of Pakistan and plz solve these issues by either smester break or smester freezzz

  • He is destroying future of Pakistan by online education because understanding is zero, skill zero, parents’ money loss on semester, students are worried about Carona virus and their grades as well as scholarship (how to maintaining).. And I think he is taking money from private universities for this purpose.

  • I think …hec has to decided on base of assignment semester passed away…online classes not possible dur lack of internet Facility mostly students belong backward Districts…

  • Being a rural area resident, managing online classes is quite much hard for us due to lack of Internet facilities.
