Introduction to Innovative Zoology Software


An activity was organized by the Department of Zoology on 7th February 2020, in which Dr. Pallavi Kaushik and Dr. Neetu Kachhwaha, Assistannt Professor, University of Rajasthan, introduced innovative zoology software by which students can learn classifications of the animals.  Zoology as a subject is loved by students as they get to know about themselves and animals around but the systematic classification is burdensome and they often face problems to memorize the classification of the vertebrates and invertebrates. There is a wide gap between the scientific knowledge of animal classification and student’s conception. A study showed that the students of elementary, secondary and college level when asked to do complete classification tasks, all age groups failed to generalize and discriminate among examples and non-examples of animals. The weakness in the basics of Zoology results in poor performances at all levels. It is also seen that during the examination the students skip and do not like to attempt these questions preferably. To solve the problem this website will help students at all levels to excel in the subject of zoology and solve basic problems. This will also help the students pursuing undergraduate (UG), post- graduation (PG) in science (Zoology as one their subject) and also students who are preparing for the competitive examinations like UGC-NET, RAS, NEET. Students of M.Sc. and B.Sc(H) attended the programme with great enthusiasm. This activity proved very useful for the students and faculty as well.
