Concept of Virtual University

The concept of Virtual University finds its roots into the time honoured gurukuls were more often that not, a single teacher used to represent the entire knowledge of the university. A living Virtual University indeed, at least for his disciples.

Times changed and with that changed the concept of teaching and learning be it Nalanda, Takshshila, Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford or our very own BITS everywhere we can see a well organized setup of learning facilities, wherein learners come in group, study in groups, are often examined in groups and even graduate in groups; all enjoying the feeling of physical nearness, togetherness and the conventional university system of education
