What is e-content [e-kandungan]?

E-content is not a new thing at UTM.  But for me, it is a new thing.  When I underwent my Latihan Ikhtisas, they were implementing this.  So, I just know this when I attended the TES workshop last June 2019.  

I try to find more information about this.  A short handout was given by Dr Nurbiha through email dated on 7 November 2018 [Click HERE to see the handout in PDF format].  

So, what is e-content [e-kandungan]?


E-content is any digital open access material based onDasar e-Pembelajaran Negara (DePAN) provided

1.         it is developed/created/constructed by instructor(s) of an affiliated education institution

2.         it does not infringe copyright 

3.         it is offered publicly through online medium for the purpose of teaching and learning .

4.         it is accessible to public using variety of platforms except UTM e-Learning (for UTM e-Learning, any material linked or uploaded is accessible only to registered users)  

How can e-content to be considered as bonus in ELPPT?

As long as your material fulfilled the 4 aspects as mentioned above, you can link it in your TES [Refer to the handout to see the steps involved] .   

What are the materials considered as e-content?

  1. Social media
  2. Blog
  3. Document sharing
  4. Learning Management System (LMS)
  5. Collaboration tools
  6. Gamification
  7. Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)
  8. Video-based learning
  9. Opencourse ware (OCW)
  10. Mobile Apps
  11. Computer-mediated reality

Disclaimer: Personally, I only know some of it because I have experienced creating/developing/using it.  But others, I only hear from my colleagues who have developed and are using the materials in their class.  So, my knowledge in this is rather limited though.
