"This is a totally different experience to do a course with the aid of technology. If we have any doubts we just have to mail or call the professor. We will be put in the queue, when our turn comes we ask the question and the professor will answer it. If another student sitting anywhere in the country wants to add on his views, technology enables him to do it. The questions are, however, monitored by the co-coordinator and the lecturer sitting in the studio to ensure that everyone is not talking at the same time."1
- Jennifer D'Silva, Student pursuing a Management Course at Direcway Center.
"I have my kids in class VIII and X. I see them mugging up experiments to repeat them on answer papers. We want to change this."2
- Vijay Gupta, Vice-president, Corporate Communications and Planning, Wipro.
