A dedicated TV channel is being considered for online classes throughout the year, said Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni.

This was stated by the Education Minister in a written reply to a question of Awami League MP Shahiduzzaman Sarkar during the question-answer session of the Jatiya Sangsad on Thursday. 

Speaker Dr. Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury presided over the session. The question-answer session for the ministers on Thursday was raised at the table.

The Education Minister said the issue of launching a dedicated channel is under consideration so that students can participate in digital classes throughout the year.

Noting that the educational activities will start in direct attendance after the vaccine jab to the university students, the Education Minister said all the universities will be brought under the coronavirus vaccination program as soon as possible on a priority basis under the direction of the Prime Minister. “The vaccination program will start with residential students. The hall will be opened after the residential students are vaccinated.”

She added that classes will start directly at the university. To compensate the students, each university has been instructed to prepare recovery plans as per their capabilities and realities and take steps to implement them. “A guideline from the University Grants Commission will be sent to the university for this,” Dr. Dipu Moni said.

The minister said online classes are being taken in all the universities currently. Private universities are also taking online exams.

Replying to another query from Awami League member Sahiduzzaman, the Education Minister said MPO registration of educational institutions is an ongoing process. In the light of the policy, educational institutions without MPO are gradually enrolled in MPO based on merit. Educational institutions which are not MPO registered will be considered for MPO registration.
