Students Laud IIT Prof Who Cancelled All Assignments Amid Pandemic Giving Kids Relief

A year on, in-person classes still remain suspended and everyone is doing all they can to ensure learning does not suffer.

Students praised the teacher for understanding the students’ difficulties and promptly tweaking the grading system to cope with the times.

However, not everyone was in the same boat and they shared how things were the complete opposite in their college or institution.
