Informative online course. I could improve my knowledge about Radiations. The study materials like videos are really useful.
The online course, Understanding Radiation: Benefits and Hazards conducted by the Department of Physics (PG) of St. Aloysius College( Autonomous) is a really useful course. It helped me a lot to improve my knowledge about Radiations and the other topics related to that. To understand this lessons well the videos and the materials uploaded by Dr. Rita and Dr. Nilakanthan and also the online classes conducted by them were really useful. So I offer my hearty gratitude to the Management of St. Aloysius College(Autonomous), Dr. Chandrashekar Shetty, Dr. Rita Crasta, Dr. Nilakanthan and all those who helped for conducting this course and working hard to improve our knowledge. Thank you.
