The distance learning period of the 2020 Spring semester has been extended for another week, through the 4th week of the semester. The Academic Service Team announced on March 25th that the distance learning format will continue until April 11th, while some lectures will be partially approved to hold offline classes during the two weeks after the 11th.
On February 7th, after the original first day of school had already been postponed for two weeks from March 2nd, the date was again moved back to March 16th. On February 28th, the schedule was re-announced to start the school on the 16th, but only under the form of online classes for two weeks from March 16th to 28th. On March 19th, the online lectures were extended for an additional week, which was until April 4th. According to the announcement made this time, online lectures are again extended for another week, which is expected to continue until this April 11th. In the end, the adjustments were made so that the offline classes were not possible until the 4th week of the semester.
Despite these facts, during the 3rd and 4th week of the semester, the school will allow courses for which offline lectures are necessary to conduct them. When requests for offline lectures are made from March 30th to April 11th, the approved result will be announced through the course room.
There are a few circumstances to meet in order for offline lectures to be approved. First, it is limited to experiment practice and theory practice courses. Professors of these types of courses need to go through the process of approval from the affiliated college and the Disease Control Committee. The agreement of all students of the lecture is also necessary for procedural purposes. Moreover, the physical distance between the students and between the lecturer and the students has to be more than 2 meters, which should be considered in advance when selecting the lecture room. This suggests that the number of seats in the lecture room should be double the number of students taking the course; for example, a lecture room with more than 60 seats will be needed for a class with 30 students. When the conducting of offline courses is finally approced, participants should still follow related instructions, such as mandatorily wearing masks and continuous ventilation of the lecture room air.
Meanwhile, the possible online lecture types have been announced as the live online lecture, online video lecture, and assignment focused lecture, while assignment focused lecture is limited to only 2 times within one semester.
