The ministry of human resources and development has granted a project to GU and Consortium for Education Communication (CEC) along with Ahmedabad-based Educational Media Research Centre to convert the entire syllabus of zoology into e-format.
The modules will be made on all 20 subjects of zoology which include animal diversity, cell biology and genetics.
Apart from the routine syllabus, special programmes will also be made on the Asiatic lion wherein clips of the king of the Gir jungle will also be shown. "We will also explain in detail how lions are living in their only abode in Asia, the breeding techniques which are being used by experts in the zoo as well as other interesting details", said M V Rao, head of GU's zoology department.
Officials said that the project's total cost was Rs 3 crore of which Rs 1 crore was sanctioned by the ministry. Trivedi said that production engineers and 40 teachers of the subject will be involved in the conceptualizing and execution of this ambitious project which will change the way a subject is taught in colleges.
"The visual element will be high in the modules and we will also use animation up to an extent", said Trivedi.
