Teaching and Learning Centre
The University encourages Blended Learning. In fact the University’s Strategic Plan 2019 – 2025 specifically mentions a goal of;
“To develop smart teaching and learning and other cutting-edge pedagogies with the help of new digital education technologies to support teaching and learning endeavours to meet students’ new learning needs in a rapidly changing world where new knowledge and skills continue to appear and workplace requirements are constantly changing.”
What does a Blended Learning approach mean for you as a student?
Blended Learning is the thoughtful integration of classroom face-to-face learning experiences with online learning experiences enabled by technologies.
Blended Learning is facilitated at Lingnan University via primarily the Moodle Learning Management System alongside other technologies like Zoom and Panopto which are used to facilitate your learning experiences through video.
What are the benefits of Blended Learning and Moodle / Zoom / Panopto for a Student?
I can connect from anywhere using any device to manage and organize my course and schedule, all my activities for my course are in one place.
I can view all my Course resources, discuss and collaborate with other students and even receive immediate feedback on my work from my teacher.
Blended Learning changes the time, place and pace that my learning occurs.
I can get notifications directly from my teacher and even when my assignments are due.
I can review the recent ZOOM Real-Time Online Teaching Class recording via Panopto and look at the notes my teacher provided to enhance my learning in Moodle.
In the physical classroom sometimes, I worry my English isn’t good enough and so I hesitate to ask a question. IN the Virtual classroom I can easily type my question and seek feedback, I’m no longer afraid.
Apart from uploading assignments, you can also upload sound files and video clips, this means, submitting homework, and sharing anything with others is much easier than sending emails or via Whatsapp.
