Best Practice 1: Gyan Sagar
E-Gyan Sagar: On-line Shiksha Aapke Dwar
Context: The year 2020-21, followed by 2021-22, was the year when mobility was almost stopped due to a corona pandemic imposing a lot of challenges on us. The faculty of the college voluntarily contributed videos for career guidance and academic upliftment for the students.
To impart education to the students even at their home/even in remote areas;
To benefit the faculty members in different subjects from online education;
To make students learn the online teaching so as to benefit the society for awareness generation/resource mobilization.
The faculty learnt video making for teaching purposes. Whatsapp groups for the students were made. Through these groups, the videos and E content of all the subjects were sent to benefit the students.
The faculty contributed many videos to the Gyan Sudha Channel, CCE Jaipur for career help to the students.
The faculty of the drawing department contributed to online live classes for UG/PG students through the Gyan-Doot Channel, CCE, Jaipur.
The faculty prepared videos on various subjects for the ready reference of the students which were also compiled under Rajiv Gandhi E-Content.
With a mix of online and offline guidance, the youth of the college very enthusiastically undertook various social projects of goodness like organizing Yoga Classes for little children, arranging parinda for birds, teaching little children, awareness generation on corona and poster making, taking care of animals, elderly-care, environment protection activities.
Many students learnt the video-making and started using these videos for social awareness.
A series of videos to help and benefit students understand social work, field work, report writing, etc. were prepared by a professional social worker (Dr Vineeta Srivastava). In collaboration with the Su-Dhara Project of the Prime Minister’s Office, a webinar on 'Cleanliness:‘Wealth from Waste’ was organized.
Various webinars were organized by different departments and/or IQAC Cell to benefit students even at the interior rural areas. A state level online training program in economics was organised.. A district level PAC workshop was organized by the College. The alumni of the college were connected through an online meet.
The viewership number depicts the utility of the videos for the students. To suddenly shift to online mode of teaching was not at all easy. Working on computers was not comfortable for many. Lack of systematic training in video making/editing added to the problems. But all took initiative to overcome all these hurdles. One challenge was to reach all the students. About 40 per cent of the students had no mobile phones with proper internet connectivity. The students were, however, asked to help each other to overcome this problem. There is a need to impart proper and direct training in video making and editing for the faculty members. Many of the faculty members got appreciation from the CCE for their online contribution for the students.
Offline Gyan Sagar: Automation of Library
The college library has been very rich, comprising 51,199 books. In 2021-22, the automation of the library was started with the automation software (Libsoft). The details of all the books being available in the computer/web portal along with their whereabouts, the tracing and issuing of the books has become easy with even less manpower.

But to convert that information into action imposes the biggest challenge. Our efforts brought good results. We plan for more interactions in the near future for more positive change.
