Lets Skype it, shall we Dr. ?

In a small but telling sign of things to come, and the increasing acceptability of ed tech in the hallowed portals of academia, the prestigious Delhi University recently decided to henceforth allow Ph.D candidates to appear for their viva via – SKYPE!
The news item in the Hindustan Times published 3rd of August 2015 was titled ‘Viva via Skype for DU’s PhD students’.
This small move shows that even the legacy institutions are slowly but surely adopting technology as a ways to reduce the needless hoop-jumping associated with education.
Congratulations DU, and welcome to the new way of education – our way!
