Dear Academic Staff,
As announced before, the University Administration has decided to conduct educational activities at our university online through the use of digital facilities during the Fall Semester of the 2020-2021 Academic Year. It is expected that the learning-teaching environment provided to our students in the current period be supported by rich content, activities and materials. The courses to be offered online should be planned as Synchronous and Asynchronous, and include both methods. Synchronous activities of the courses will be carried out as live lessons / meeting hours with the students by adhering to our course schedule via MS Teams. Asynchronous activities should also be in the form of videos of the classes that have been delivered synchronously and the materials you have prepared about the course before (i.e. videos, lecture notes, supplementary information about the course, study documents, quiz, forum, project, etc.).
Videos and guidelines will be shared with you at https://emuonline.emu.edu.tr/index.html or https://emuonline.emu.edu.tr/ins_videos_guidelines.html (the page we are currently in) for conducting your classes and developing materials.
Our expectations from you in the current academic year are as follows:
Reminder 1: Please do not make any changes such as the course title and course short title in the "edit course settings" section on the LMS. These information are automatically taken from the portal and created, accordingly. Therefore, if you make any changes, your course will be re-created (originally empty) in the next update (automatically) and it will be seen as if no additions have been made.
Reminder 2: Since our courses on the LMS will operate synchronously with the portal, changes made on the portal pertaining to adding / removing students, changing student groups, etc. will be handled by the system. A certain amount of time must pass for the changes to be displayed. These changes will not be reflected on MS Teams. Changes will have to be made manually by the instructors.
