Review[edit]

  • What worked well?
  • The Sessions were nicely managed. Online Sessions and the resource videos shared were of great help.
  • What didn't work well?
  • Nothing as such.
  • What do you think could have been done better?
  • Experts from specific area such as cartography could have been invited to give further inputs.

Anything else[edit]

  • I personally always miss the souvenirs from the Camps. The tradition has been stopped off late. It needs to be started.
  • Next time we need to include a edit-thon, where in all work on some practice example, after having learnt in training.
  • My special thanks and congratulations to Organizers for conducting it.
  • Further to carry out further camps on advance topics or GIMP, Animation etc.
