Yes, to some extent.
As you see with social media we come to know about its impact and importance in the market. We come to know about what particular course, for eg: what kind of people go in marketing, and then we can design the courses accordingly. As a government college we don’t have that freedom, while in private colleges, they develop the curriculum according to the demands of the market.
In our college we use Facebook, whatsapp through which we communicate with our students and also come to know about its various features.
From this year we’ll have a new session and we’ll keep many things in our consideration. For example: In social media, we come to know about the various courses on personal development. We take into consideration the aspiration of the students and take the required measures accordingly in alliance with Delhi University rules.
We don’t have anything to offer with social media. Our teachers believe in class room teaching methods only but at times, student- teacher do interact on internet also and on mail. They send their fan mails to the teachers too at times. (sic)
Through social media we come to know about many things for example at the time of admission through Facebook we give information to outsiders and parents. Let me tell you one thing that students are the stakeholders in any organization. At the time of admission, there is hardly any interaction with the parents, it only happens during the admission. We try to do the best that we can for parents and other bodies.
When you talk about social media partly, then you talk about the latest developments that are taking place in the society. When you talk about the latest developments when it is technology, we need to be focused and incorporate all the things that are possible if projected/permitted.
Everything has its pros and cons, so if we can use social media effectively then it’s a good for all the society.
