Students are advised to familiarise themselves on how to consult with their lecturers, outside the class hours, whether face-to-face, or online. This is usually communicated through the individual subjects’ eLearn page, course outlines and/or other learning platforms that the lecturers use. Peer learning support is available for selected subjects through the Peer Assisted Learning Programme.
What is most important is that if you feel that you are facing academic challenge and need help, you should let your lecturer know, so that the appropriate assistance can be given to you.
For online sessions, some of the platforms that are available at Sunway University, for example Blackboard eLearn, Ms Team, Zoom and Panopto record your attendance automatically when you access videos/ video links, or when you participate in live sessions through these platforms. Your instructor may also consider your completion of some online activities as your attendance.
However, some instructors may choose to use other external platforms, like YouTube, and EdPuzzle, to conduct their online sessions. Either way, you may need to communicate with your instructor and get a clearer picture on how your attendance is recorded if you are unsure.
However, blended learning requires you to be more self-regulated and independent in your learning. You will need to be aware of what is happening for each subject.
Online learning refers to a mode of learning that takes place on a virtual platform. In online learning, activities that normally take place during face-to-face session will be conducted virtually.
Online learning can be conducted even when participants are remotely positioned, unlike face-to-face learning, where learning takes place at a designated physical location.
In face-to-face learning, the use of technological tools or platform, in some subjects, are optional but for online learning, because it takes place virtually, the use of a technological platform or tech application to support learning activities is inevitable. Students can use a laptop/ desktop, a tablet, or a mobile phone to engage with online learning.
One learning is not self-learning; it is a guided/ facilitated process. Your instructor will provide you with necessary guidance/ facilitation to support your learning. Guidance may be provided to you through carefully designed content, feedback sessions, and formative online activities.
Online learning, however, requires you to be more self-regulated and independent in your learning.
If you cannot find any platform for you to ask questions, please highlight this to your instructor.
Some of the platforms that are available at Sunway University, for example Blackboard eLearn, Ms Team and Panopto record your attendance automatically when you access videos/ video links, or when you participate in live sessions through these platforms. Your instructor may also ‘take your attendance’ when you have completed some online activities.
However, some instructors may choose to use other external platforms, like YouTube, Zoom, EdPuzzle, to conduct their online sessions. In such case, you may need to communicate with your instructor and get a clearer picture on how your attendance is recorded.
Please watch Part 2 of ‘Introduction to Online Learning’ (for students) to get more explanation about attendance. If you are still in doubt, please check with your instructor.
In such case, you will not be considered absent as long as you engage with the recording of the live session.
Please communicate with your instructor if you have problems getting online during a live session so that he or she can consider an alternative arrangement for you.
You may have to sacrifice some sleep to participate in the live session. However, if this is not possible, you are required to engage with the recording of the live session.
You must also keep your instructor informed of your current situation and stay in contact with your instructor for any difficulties you face in accessing the recordings of live session.
