[Special]Hanyang Resumes Offline Lectures

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all courses were switched to online for the first four weeks of this semester. However, the university resumed some offline lectures starting on April 13 – most classes were limited to experiment practice and theory practice courses. The administration is paying extra attention to prevent the community-acquired infection. The students, on the other hand, have shown varying reactions surrounding the resumption of offline lectures. The university has recently resumed offline lectures, most of which are experiment practice and theory practice courses. In order to hold offline lectures, professors need to file up the request to the Academic Service Team the week before their first offline class. The classes could be held after the approval of the students, the affiliated college, and the Infectious Disease Control Committee. According to the Academic Service Team, about 200 classes requested offline lectures at Seoul Campus. A total of 70 classes requested offline classes at ERICA Campus, 27 of which are personal lessons hosted by the Department of Applied Music professors. Still, the officials added that even after receiving permission, many classes continue to be conducted online. In order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, there are a number of requirements before being allowed to attend an offline lecture. Before entering the classroom, students must be checked to ensure their temperature is below 37.5 degrees and fill out a self-health checkup form in front of the main gate. They are also required to wear masks in the classroom and wash their hands using hand sanitizer. Ventilation is also an important issue, as professors are encouraged to leave the windows and doors open. The participants – including the instructor – should maintain at least two meters of physical distance. Students should turn in a self-health checkup sheet and wear masks before entering the classroom. Students have expressed mixed opinions regarding the resumption of offline lectures. Nam Hee-joo (Department of Architecture, 5th year) preferred to have offline classes as she had more opportunities to receive critiques on her architectural designs. "There were lots of environmental limitations to getting enough feedback online,” said Nam. She added that offline classes motivated her to concentrate more on the professor’s lectures and comments. However, some of the students did not feel the same way. Kim Ki-young (Department of Jewelry and Fashion Design, 1st year) said that there was no notable difference between online and offline lectures. Kim said that he would rather choose to have more online classes considering his long commute time to school. Meanwhile, school officials said that they are making every effort to find ways to ensure the safest way to resolve the confusion caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. “The university believes that the health and safety of students and faculty members is the top priority,” said Oh Chae-young, a staff member of the Academic Service Team. “Please understand the inconvenience caused by online classes and the restricted access to school facilities as it is is a necessary measure to ensure our members' health and safety.” Oh Kyu-jin alex684@hanyang.ac.kr Photos by Kim Su-ji

[General]If Your Attendance for the Live Video Lecture Isn’t Recognized, “Request Attendance”

On March 30, the Academic Service Team announced information about attendance during the distance learning period of the first semester of 2020. About 350 complaints have been submitted to the school's technical team regarding online attendance, and the results were presented after making requests to the university main administration. The attendance for distance learning is the same as before. Live video lectures, online recording lectures, and project-based lectures are the three class types, while the project-based lectures are limited to a maximum of two of the total sessions this semester. The live video lecture runs according to the set timetable, and the online video lecture allows attendance recognition if the student watches the video within the deadline assigned by the instructor. Furthermore, if a student watches the online recorded lecture as assigned before the deadline but is not recognized with a grade of "Pass" in Blackboard, the student can submit an attendance error notification to the Blackboard Support Center. The Blackboard Support Center said “It can take a while since we are solving the cases we have received in order,” and that “we will try to reply back within 24 hours of the process.” What should be paid attention to in this announcement is that the attendance request method for live video lectures has been informed. Previously, the attendance error reporting was only accepted regarding the online recorded lectures, but the live video lectures had to be confirmed through individual contact with instructors. However, this time, a formal announcement about live video lecture attendance was presented. ▲ The attendance recognition request in Blackboard is available through the message icon on the upper right side of the screen. Students should try accessing the video at least three times, and then if they are unable to access it, the attendance recognition request may be filled out and sent to the instructor through email or Blackboard message. The Blackboard messaging system can be accessed by clicking the upper right side message icon. If you check the "send a copy to the recipient's email" when sending, it will also be sent via email. Based on the Blackboard record of the student's access to the course room and the details of the student's explanatory statement, the instructor will determine whether the student had enough sincerity and effort but failed to access due to inevitable circumstances, and will reply back to the student through email or Blackboard message. ▲ Recorded versions of the live video lectures can be accessed through Blackboard Collaborate on the right side detailed menu option (…) of each course. If the instructor acknowledges the access failure reason, the student can watch the recorded version of the live video lecture through Blackboard and request confirmation, and the instructor can recognize the attendance after checking. The recorded version of all live video lectures can be watched by clicking the Blackboard collaborate left side menu […]. Detailed information and the format for the attendance recognition request can be found on the Hanyang University official homepage notice board.
