Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // "The teaching-learning process has undergone a major shift due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The situation has necessitated the use of online media more aggressively to reach out to learners and address their academic needs. However, the digital divide prevalent in many parts of the world is a stumbling block. Academic Programme delivery through technological interventions, having a judicious mix of online and broadcast media, was the solution, Indira Gandhi National Open University thought of while delivering their MA (Journalism & Mass Communication) Programme. // The university has been using various ICTs extensively such as radio, television, interactive radio counselling, broadcast-based teleconferencing, Google Classroom, Google Meet, Face book, WhatsApp, YouTube etc. in complementary and supplementary modes; in addition to printed Self Learning Materials. The use of digital online resources like social media, MOOCs and OERs mixed with traditional broadcasting channels paved the way for skill-oriented training and successful delivery of the programme." // Paper ID 7457
