State Higher Education Additional Chief Secretary Bharathlal Meena spoke to the gathering of teachers at Mangalore University campus on Friday regarding the same.

Bharathlal mentioned that the use of modern technology will undoubtedly improve the quality of education delivered to the students. “Audio–visual copies of lecturers from elsewhere can have a huge impact on the style of education and help students in coping with their studies even better”, he added.

He further went on to say, “Many lectures from different colleges have been recorded over a period of time by the State Higher Education Department and the recording has helped teachers of other colleges. Teachers have the future of young generation in their reigns. So it is important to keep a tab on their own performance and refer other lecturers’ way of teaching. Teachers are drawing as much salary as IAS officers which leaves the society expecting more from them.”

In the modern age of technological boom, students must be guided in the right path which inturn will ensure better results.”
