Smart Classroom Projects at IIT(ISM)
IIT(ISM) has chosen 10 existing premier lecture halls to be converted to world class smart classrooms. The objectives of smart classrooms are to provide enhanced learning experience to students via real-time e-learning with help of audios and videos, multimedia, images, online web conferences, PPT presentations, and 2D & 3D animations. The work includes sound proofing, adding latest audiovisual equipment and installing computer equipment to teach online classes.
Five ISMAANA alumni have graciously come forward to sponsor six lecture hall upgrades. They are Dr Pramod Thakur (61ME) who is sponsoring upgrade of MIN1, Mining Engineering lecture hall in the Heritage building, Dr. Mohinder Gulati (62PE), who is sponsoring upgrading of 2 lecture halls, one in the Petroleum Engineering building and one in the new lecture hall complex.

Funding requirement of each lecture hall upgrade is Rs. 18 Lakhs. Final contractor for the smart classroom is selected and all the hardware and equipment for the smart classrooms are acquired. Work got delayed due to campus lockdown due to Covid-19. Work has currently resumed and the completion is expected end of July 2021.
