HEC Stops Substandard Online University Classes Due to Complaints

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has halted several universities’ online classes after receiving complaints about the poor quality and mismanagement from the students.

On Wednesday, HEC said it moved on multiple complaints from the students regarding the low-quality content, delivery, and connectivity on various subjects.

The commission will now directly intervene, as announced by the chairman Dr. Tariq Banuri.


HEC Orders All Universities to Begin Online Classes

He has sought detailed information on these courses to determine if the subjects/courses meet preset standards. If any university is found lacking the capacity of delivering online lectures, it will be directed to stop offering such courses/lectures.

Dr. Tariq said that HEC is closely monitoring the developments amid the COVID-19 pandemic and is collaborating with universities’ leadership to provide support where needed to minimize the academic disruption.

Contingency plans are in place. If the current lockdown situation prevails beyond May 31, all universities will be directed to resort to online education.


HEC to Inspect the Quality of Online University Classes

The May 31 deadline is for universities that need time to establish an online learning management system. The institutions with digitally advanced systems are already allowed to conduct online classes, he added.

It should be noted that HEC has been cooperating with universities to minimize the impact of the coronavirus lockdown on academic activities. It has established three specialized IT committees to help varsities arrange software and tech support to curate substantive online content.

Moreover, all public sector universities have been given free access to Microsoft Teams to facilitate online meetings and discussions. Microsoft officials will help them understand and operate this platform.

  • Jhoot #University of Lahore ki to abhi bhi ho rahi Hai online classes Un ki to abhi tak suspend nahi hui udhar to abhi bhi ye khel Jari Hai bacho ke mustaqbil tabah karne ka khel aur paise kamane ka

  • plaease stop the online classes in HCBA&E Rahim Yar Khan Compus it is very difficult to understand individually by the student in bs semester system

  • I’d request that HEC should define a certain standard or guideline for universities to follow. I don’t think universities are deliberately doing it (I may be wrong). Universities or any educational institutions and their faculty are trying their best to deliver online classes. This situation has challenged everyone in terms of business operations. I feel it would be better if HEC establishes a guideline with minimum requirements for universities to follow.

  • I suggest the Govt to off the online classes because it is a wastage of time+money and we didn’t understand anything in online class.The university should cancel the summer semester and isstead of that they complete the fall-20 semester.Fees poori hi day kr jain gay 4 saal ki tention na lo

  • It’s a humble request to plz stop online classes system…
    We pay for learning not to just take a delivered lectures by a teachers online which hv no effective result on our skills… even though over parents are not satisfy with it ! Why you are just imposing it to a students.. we were not mentally prepare for online system.. we dont even have fast technology system.. students having fast internet service will take benefit by getting good grades but what about those students whom hv internet issue?? Did they not pay a fee?

  • It’s a very humble request to HEC to stop online classes, there is no learning at all not only for this we are paying the valid point is that we do not learn at all, we face difficulties throughout the session and if we ask something from the teachers some of them get offend and show their pride then why are you teaching us? There are several degrees in which the need of practical work so students learn from practically rather bookish material. At the point no one can understand on the behalf of students problems they just doing their duties for the sake of money or whatever.but I requested to you please stop online classes not only there are millions of students who are facing trouble and get nothing from the online classes. as our degree command is full fledged practical work and we have to learn from the practical work so we can’t do something as the culture barrier.so please understand us not for the sake of we are paying at least we want learning! Even some departments of universities not provided their material and if we ask from them they deny to give us the. What is the behavior or faculty too. Please do some favor for our learning.we are paying so we want full fledged classes and practical work to learn.

  • السلام و علیکم ہم جامعہ زرعیہ کے سٹوڈنٹس ہیں۔ اور بزریعہ ای میل اور citizen portal مطلقہ ادارے تک یہ پیغام ارسال کرنا چاہتے ہیں کہ پوری دنیا میں سب سے معزز پیشہ درس و تدریس ہے جس کے ساتھ موجودہ معاملات میں انصاف نہیں ہو رہا۔
    اس صورتحال میں وہی کامیاب ہے جو مالی طور پر مضبوط ہے
    اس بات کا ثبوت یہ ہے کہ اس جامعہ میں پڑھنے والے زیادہ تر کا طالب علم متوسط گھرانوں کے تعلق ہے وہ روز روز مہنگے انٹرنیٹ پیکجز نہیں کر سکتے اور کچھ علاقوں میں صورتحال بہت گھمبیر ہے کہ ایزی لوڈ بھی نہیں ہو رہے۔ کچھ علاقوں میں انٹرنیٹ کی سہولت ہی نہیں ہے۔
    اور مسئلہ ان سفید پوش لوگوں کا ہے جو سمارٹ فون تک نہیں لے سکتے انہوں نے بھاری فیس بھی انسٹالمنٹ سے دی ہے۔
    ہماری یونیورسٹی کا آن لائن سسٹم اتنا فعال بھی نہیں ہے کہ اس سے مسائل حل ہوں۔ ہم HEC کو پیغام پہنچانا چاہتے کہ درس و تدریس کے ساتھ کھلواڑ نہ ہونے دیا جائے اور سمسٹر بریک دے دی جائے تا کہ مکمل نظریاتی اور عملی تعلیم حاصل کی جائے

    Dear Administration,

    University of Central Punjab (UCP) launches a scheme of Online Classes. But the students disagree from UCP. Reason is Students face lack of Internet or Signals issues , Some Students have no sources to attend online classes like (Laptop or Mobile) ,Understanding of Lectures is impossible ,Teachers and Student interaction , Our GPA or CGPA or Scholarship will suffer from lack of good Knowledge So Ucpians request BanOnlineClasses , UCP-just-want-fees , we-reject-online-Classes . They are also forcing us to pay full fee… We are not able to pay 1 lac for online classes. Take notice on that as well.. All the students of UCP (GRW) Bycott from online classes. HEC can take Action on UCP (GRW).
    Thanks a lot for your precious time.
