The class was held in Makmal Komputer in the Faculty of Education. We were introduced to a sweet lecturer called Dr Rosseni. The class today was all about introduction and registration.
Before we started the activities for the day, we had an self introduction session as it's Dr Rosseni's first time meeting us. However, we did it in an interesting and unusual way which was through http://padlet.com/rosseni/edutech2016 . It's a platform where we could randomly introduce ourselves and post it on the platform so that everyone can see. It is like Post it. Everyone had fun.
Besides face-to-face learning in class every week, we will also be required to join an open learning on MOOC. We were not clueless about this because we were introduced to this during Hubungan Etnik class a few days ago. Apparently, we are supposed to learn independently on a platform called Massive Open Learning Course (MOOC). If compared to the normal face to face teaching and learning session, I find MOOC very interesting and new. There are videos that we can watch so that we understand a certain topic better. We straight away register the course on MOOC with the guidance of Dr Rosseni.
Other than that, we were also told to register ourselves into groups for tutorials and assignments purpose. It will be easier that way so that we do not feel hectic in the future about assignments. I prefer to do work with people that I am close with because we already knew how each other does a group assignment and it would be more comfortable (I think half of the class would agree with me on this). Again, we did this registration with the help of Dr Rosseni.
Dr Rosseni then moved on to explain about the individual weekly reflections that we have to do, which is what I'm doing now. We'd done this during semester 1 and I think it's really fun since we can decorate our blog ourselves and write about what we learned.
The class was not boring at all because we were busy doing hands on activities like registration. I really look forward to the actual lecture on the upcoming week.
