ROOTS – The Foundation Program

Roots 2020 v2

“People without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture are like trees without roots.”- Marcus Garvey

I take this opportunity to congratulate and welcome all the students who have been admitted into various degree and diploma programmes at Jharkhand Rai University (JRU), Ranchi.

At JRU, we believe in innovative teaching methods that help in preparing our students with desired skills, ingenious insights and imaginative abilities in order to make them well equipped and employable.

Keeping in mind the students coming from different and diverse background, JRU brings in 20 days of meticulously designed Online Foundation Program named “ROOTS–2020” on JRU Moodle Learning platform starting October 1, 2020.

JRU Moodle is a learning management system (LMS) designed to provide students and faculty members with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create personalized learning environments. In this time of pandemic crisis, our University has developed a well-rounded and effective educational practice needed for capacity-building of young aspiring minds.

“ROOTS – 2020” is designed around students, helping them to bridge and uncover the answers to the questions they have, and providing the information regarding the campus resources, programs & services.

During the program students will build a network of resources that will help them to start their JRU journey on the right path. By the end of ROOTS, students will be on their way to start their exiting educational journey.

Our University is committed to entrepreneurial development and skills enhancement for our students. We have also taken a novel initiative to add a skill-based Certification Programme in various programmes. “ROOTS – 2020 followed by TWO days Online Orientation Program” will start with an Introduction Session, along with many games and fun loving activities, and later would cover the basic of sciences / Maths / IT / English/ Biology which will help the students coming from diverse background learn the fundamentals and
come up to a common platform before they begin their respective credit based course.

Apart from academics, the sessions will include different club activities from JRU’s Cultural Club, Sports Club and Science Club.

To make learning fun, the session will also include leaning from different movies from Bollywood/Hollywood, Lip sync battle, pass the word, spotting etc. to inculcate and imbibe soft skills like Ethics, Motivation, Leadership, etc.

Besides this, the courses on “Basic Etiquette and Personal Development” and “IT Awareness and Technology Trends” also constitutes an integral part of the foundation program, ensuring the students use best of their capabilities and resources once they enter the credit-based program.

Last but not the least, the session will include “Expert Talk” from eminent personalities in their fields and also include “Alumni’s Wit” where our alumni will be sharing experiences about their campus life.

To ensure that the program is taken up with utmost seriousness, all students will also go through an assessment session at the end of ROOTS.

“ROOTS – 2020” is aptly designed to give the students a gist of what they would experience in their forthcoming course tenure. The session ends with loads of fun filled learning games and events on the go.

A full schedule will be provided to the students and we encourage the presence of students for the entire ROOTS and Orientation Program in the online mode. Please have a look at our website and take full advantage of our office to know more about the services that we offer which will definitely contribute to your success. Moreover, do not hesitate to contact us in case you are in doubt about anything or should you be all for seeking any assistance.
