Abhijit Poddar's Edutainment Blog

Hello everybody! Welcome. I have created this site primarily for the benefit of students of our college and elsewhere. Students may find here, a host of information related to the subject of Electronic Science, in the form of syllabus, questions, their solutions, references and web-links, by visting my 'Teaching page'. They may participate in online quizzes pertaining to the current topics being taught in class, through interactive java applets. They may also send their feedback from the class and ask questions through a form. Some of the contents within the site are likely to benefit students of Physics Honours and those pursuing post graduate courses in Electronic Science and Physics as well. Of late, we have been carrying out research in developing innovative e-learning objects in physics and electronics. We are also into developing novel apps for Android. I would like to provide my students some insights into our present as well as past work through my 'Research page'. Amidst all the study and research, it makes sense to include some trivia as well. To that end, I have included some interesting travel-related anectdotes in the 'Travel page'.

I would like to stress the fact that this endeavour on my part is driven purely out of my wish to use my computational skills developed during my doctoral and post-doctoral years and my teaching expertise, painstakingly developed over the subsequent years, to help the students of electronics and physics, and also to make use of my penchant for writing to share my travel and other experiences with the larger web-audience. I hope every visitor to the site finds it useful or entertaining in some way or the other. I have coded the entire site myself, primarily with the help of HTML and CSS. A free guestbook from 123guestbook.com has been made use of though. I would love to have your feedback.
