Rabindra Dhungel, 4 october 2020. Tribhuvan University has published a research journal on the effects of Covid 19 on health, education, economy and diversity of society. Minister for Education, Science and Technology and Vice-Chancellor of Tribhuvan University, Giriraj Mani Pokharel, released the journal through the online technology of the journal. The journal, published by the TRI Research Center, contains research materials on Covid 19.
Tribhuvan University has played a leading role in the field of education and public health in the complex situation of Kovid 19 infection. In the face of global complexities, the university has played a leading role in making teaching-learning technology-friendly by using its expertise in the fields of education and health, health policy research, health care, expert counseling and policy implementation of electronic media.
Dr. Dharmakanta Baskota, Vice-Chancellor of Tribhuvan University, had written an official letter to the government informing the government that the physical assets, equipment and manpower of the university could be used for anti-COVID 19 purposes.
As the transition to Covid 19 spread, Tribhuvan University made an immediate decision to use its affiliated campuses as quarantine isolation centers. Similarly, PCR machines were installed at Teaching Hospitals Maharajgunj, Kirtipur and Surkhet under the special initiative of Tribhuvan University.
In coordination with the Government of Nepal, the initiative has also played an important role in providing services as a co-operative hospital with ICU by evacuating the bone and nose, ear and throat wards of the Matri Teaching Hospital.
Health workers and staff of Tribhuvan University have been able to provide services in the forefront in the fight against Kovid 19. About 200 health workers are still active in the health service despite being infected themselves. In addition, the health experts of the university are playing a leading role in the construction and expansion of Covid 19 laboratories across the country and are contributing to make the country safe from the risk of Covid.
Tribhuvan University has adopted an alternative method of teaching and learning to keep itself afloat in the challenging situation of covid transition and to keep itself alive in a timely manner. Teaching and learning has been started by providing 175 free zoom technology licenses immediately in collaboration with an organization called NREN to manage online classrooms by creating a classroom environment by using social distance. Learning from the significant achievements of the internationalization of education, Trivi has organized the classroom with the help of a team of 500,000 licensed teachers, staff and students.
The Center for Information Technology Innovation has been established at the central level to make policy decisions through the use of modern technology and to extend the access of information technology to dedicated campuses and agencies. The work of creating subdomains of more than 130 bodies has been successful in organizing all the bodies of the university under one domain. In order to make the teachers and staff of the university technology friendly and engage them in electronic media, training has been provided to 5,000 teachers and more than 500 staff to conduct online classes.
The work has started to connect everyone through the official email provided by Tribhuvan about all the educational, administrative and research activities of Tribhuvan University. The work of automating the internal administrative activities of the university is being carried out through Office Automates software.
