Maulana Azad National Urdu University (Manuu) on Tuesday launched a YouTube channel to provide students wider access to higher education.
The channel, created by the Instructional Media Centre (IMC) of the varsity, will help provide quality education to more than 80,000 students studying under distance mode and scores of Urdu-speaking people residing across the globe.

Vice-chancellor of the university, Aslam Parvaiz, termed the launch of the varsity’s digital initiative as the liberation of the Urdu language from ramps of literature and added that through these initiatives the varsity aims to make Manuu a knowledge hub for the Urdu population.

“Today’s generation is addicted to social media. Although we might not be able to move them away from the social media, we can definitely provide positive content to them that will help in learning something,” said Parvaiz, adding that the varsity has a repository of curriculum-based audiovideo visual programmes of various streams like science, social science, life sciences, art, and languages, etc. with ample scope for discussion with teachers.

“We have realised that just study material is not sufficient, especially for those studying in distance mode as they have no access to a teacher. 

Through this initiative, they will have a virtual teacher in the form of video conference and videos,” said the VC adding that the varsity has recorded 30 programmes, on an average, each month since the last one year.
