Interview with Prof. Kumar
One of the research challenges we faced was about tackling the perception that instruction through online learning was subpar to the instruction at brick-and-mortar universities. Then, why top universities in the world are resorting to online instruction as supplemental to regular classroom instruction?
We can think of this as flipped-research, research driven by students and supported by the rest of the AU community. Just the opposite of what one would expect in a traditional university. Students can do their research wherever they are in the world, as long as the resources can reach them when they need them.
