To make the students to have better access of all the concepts they have to present, the faculty has provided a date-wise schedule of the topics. With a view to arousing an interest in the students towards comprehension of processes, situations, developing rational thinking and having an open discussion amongst themselves, we choose some videos which help the students understand the process/situation. Therefore the students watch them enthusiastically and participate actively in the ensuing discussion.
