In order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19, from Monday 9/11/2020 we will start offering all the theoretical courses (see Table 1) online. All the courses taught partly or fully in a laboratory (see Table 2) will continue to be taught in classrooms as currently. The online classes will be conducted during the set days and times of the classes (the days and times the classes took place so far during Fall 2020 semester).
Online classes will be conducted similarly to how the in-classroom classes were conducted. To participate in an online class you need to use the video conferencing application called “Zoom”. You can access “Zoom” from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer with speakers (to speak during an online class you will need a microphone too). Attached you may find guidelines as to how you can use “Zoom”.
It is compulsory to participate in the live online classes because this way you can ask your instructor questions, solve exercises etc. Instructors will record student attendance in each online class.
Online classes will finish earlier than the set ending time to allow instructors time to upload the video recording in Google Drive / Moodle and to execute their other online education duties.
