VIPUS 2020: INDIA’s FIRST NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE IT FEST
Vipus is the First National Level Online IT Fest in India. It is organizing by the Department of Computer Science, Sree Sankara Vidyapeetom College, Valayanchirangara, Ernakulam, Kerala. To the best of our knowledge no institution in our country has ever organised a completely online IT fest. By the name “VIPUS” itself means ‘Inspiration’. We are trying to encourage all of the students in these lockdown period to utilise this opportunity as much as possible. The first goal of this event is to promote the curricular and noncurricular skills of students during these lockdown days. We are conducting our fest with 11 events through which the participants can express their talents and can increase their knowledge. Coding, Website Creation, Quiz, Startup Ideas, Project Ideas, Debate, Digital Painting, Photography, Dancing, Singing and Gaming are the events we provide to encourage and refresh the minds of students. Our mission is to utilize the lockdown period through orientation to academics by sharing our Coursera lisence to the winners. Now a days we have classes in online mode. We scheduled our events without affecting the regular class time. We are providing the Coursera courses and cash prizes to encourage students
