To ensure continuity of education in situations that may require moving instruction online, MSME has prepared a guideline and how-to videos to help faculty and students maintain the processes of learning and teaching.

Faculty can utilize our e-Learning platform MSME LMS, Microsoft Teams, together with AU Spark Pro. If you do not currently have a course in our LMS, you can request your course to be created.

Get started with online learning

Given that this is an unusual situation to put together an online class. The school recommends prioritizing our activities as follows:

  1. Focus on transforming all your material to self-study, assignment, and quiz (everyone will have other things to do during a pandemic).
  2. Create a question bank and quiz activities (make auto-grading your priority).
  3. Provide an asynchronous channel for communication (e.g., forum, chat).
  4. Record video lectures.
  5. Only when necessary, ask students for a live session. Best to break out for small groups.
