A One week online Faculty Development Programme on “R Programming”, in association with Spoken Tutorial, IIT Bombay, Mumbai, was organized from 11 May -15 May 2020 during this COVID-19 outbreak.

Spoken Tutorial is an initiative of IIT Bombay under Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission on Education through ICT by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India to promote IT literacy through Open Source Software.
