Working from Home

Today is the day 6 of the Restriction of Movement Order (RMO) and we are now officially working from home. As for today, we have 2 virtual meetings in a row. The 1st meeting is on the Key Focus Area (KFA) 2: Research Excellence, Industry & Community Engagement (10.00 am – 12.30 pm) led by Mr. Chew from TNCPI and the 2nd meeting is on KAI Group Presentation in the afternoon (2.30 pm – 4.30 pm ) between MJIIT members.

This is such a new experience for me and we hope to have better implementation for online teaching and learning too.

As for now, I have used Cisco WEBEX Meeting and Skype. Looking forward to use other online platforms. Let me know if you have any suggestions!
