MAKAUT, WB organizing webinars on  Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) every Saturday amidst lockdown.Day by day it is being widely accepted that Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) technologies are becoming more and more important all over the world in various fields and also in the teaching-learning process. It is needless to mention that medical science, journalism, tourism and entertainment industry has undergone a sea change with the help of these immersive technologies. The reason is that, it is possible to penetrate deep into the subject by using these technologies. Experts are of opinion that these technologies will penetrate more into India also in the coming days.

It is in this perspective that the Hon’ble Vice Chancellor of MAKAUT, WB Dr. Saikat Maitra has taken the initiative to organize webinars every Saturday from 3 pm to 4 pm on various themes encompassing these emerging and immersive technologies for the students of MAKAUT, in the midst of lockdown to check the spread of Corona Virus. It was decided in an online meeting on 14.04.2020, attended by Prof. Maitra, other officers and directors of the university and Prof. Samir Mukherjee, Head Department of Emerging Technology & VR/AR/MR/XR of MAKAUT. Before lockdown, already a Faculty Development Programme (FDP) for 10 days was conducted by MAKAUT at its Salt Lake Campus, with Prof. Mukherjee as a co-ordinator.

The FDP was inaugurated at ITC Sonar, on the 19th of December 2020. The session at Salt Lake Campus of MAKAUT was initiated by Prof.  P. N.
