Kochi: A second-year MSc Biochemistry student Arathi Reghunath has set a world record at the Universal Record Forum by completing 350 online courses in the last three months.
She resides in Kochi’s Elamakkara, Ernakulam district.
During lockdown, in her free time, Arathi started studying these courses and made a world record.
“It was my faculty at college who introduced me into the world of online courses. There are a range of courses online. All of them vary in duration and curriculum. With the support of my college principal Ajims P Muhammed, Coursera coordinator Haneefa K G, and class tutor Neelima T K, I managed to finish the courses I signed up for within a few weeks,” said Arathi.
The courses finished by Arathi were offered by several world-renowned universities including John Hawkins University, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), University of Virginia, State University of New York, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Copenhagen, University of Rochester and Emory University.
Her parents, Maliyekkal Madathil M R Reghunath and Kaladevi are extremely proud of her, she added.
