7. What constraints you expect and how you propose to control them?

  • In normal classroom, there are many disturbances, it may loose one’s concentration, but in this activity the resources such as videos are provided which can be watched by students at any time & as many times. It helps in understanding concepts very well.
  • It helps in completion of syllabus in time
  • I find difficult to maintain curiosity while learning on my own.

  • From videos, students can learn difficult concepts on their own, No need to learn from teachers.
