- (1888PressRelease) December 17, 2011 - Strathclyde SKIL Business School (SSBS) has launched a very unique way of instruction. In keeping with the Strathclyde Business School, Glasgow's strong and effective philosophy of students learning from other students through interactions, debates and discussions, SSBS is connected to all the nine other institutes across the world. A student from Noida can chat with someone sitting in Switzerland or the US and get their views and opinions on the various aspects of management. Online platforms used by Strathclyde are Myplace, Pegasus, Mpegasus, Spider, Mercury, and Nemo.
Lakshmana Sandeep, in the Master in Management (MiM) programme at SSBS can be found online most of the time. "I regularly use Yahoo, Google and Pegasus. They are a very quick and easy way to get project work done because most of the time I find the subject related information and the images I need to support my findings here."
For their academic work, the SSBS students turn to Pegasus. "Pegasus helps us in finding relevant journals and articles free of cost. It also helps us in finding sample question papers which would help us in tackling the exams," Debanuj says, as he prepares for an upcoming exam.
These platforms, common to all Strathclyde students, aid them to enhance learning by giving them a global perspective to any of their subjects, including discussions on electives. There really is nothing like interaction and brainstorming. Online chats and resources, on search engines like Google are more generic. Whereas, the ones operated by Strathclyde are specifically meant for students to use for their research and to brainstorm, discuss and compare notes with other students located in different parts of the world. Using these tools, "we get a vast amount of resources for reading and reference," Atash, MiM student, says.
Fun features are also accessible to those seeking them. "They are available on Spider and Mercury," says Anand who looks forward to some fun happening online in the near future.
For now, though it is time to get some learning done, so Pegasus is the platform all the SSBS MiM students are logging into.
