A blend of traditional teaching and ICT resources can provide a well-rounded learning experience in a college’s Zoology department. He department has Youtube channel which delivers multimedia content such as video lectures that explain difficult concepts of zoology.

Video conferencing tools like Zoom / Googlemeet is being used for virtual lectures, guest speakers, alumni and collaborations with other institutions.

Interactive simulations and virtual labs that replicate experiments and biological processes such as physio X, online virtual lab are being used. These can help students understand complex concepts in a controlled, digital environment.

4. Vidyavanam

The Department of Zoology in association with the Social forestry wing of the Kerala Forests and Wildlife department launched a “Vidyavanam” project in the College for the benefit of students.  Using the Myawaki method a barren piece of land was converted into a miniature forest named Vidyavanam. These forests encourage new biodiversity and an ecosystem which in turn increases the fertility of the soil.

5. Butterfly garden

The department of Zoology maintains a butterfly garden which is specifically designed and cultivated to attract and support butterflies. These gardens are typically planted with a variety of nectar-rich flowers, host plants for caterpillars, and other elements that provide food and shelter for butterflies at various stages of their life cycle. The use of pesticides is totally avoided as they can harm both butterflies and their caterpillars. These gardens contribute to the conservation of butterfly species and also aid students in learning biodiversity.
