Using Open Education Resources for Teaching and Learning

Open Education Resources (OER) supports Sustainable Development Goal, SDG 4: Quality Education highlighted by UNESCO. There are a total of 17 SDGs highlighted by UNESCO.

In UTM, all new lecturers have to be exposed to the concept of using and developing OER to promote awareness about OER. I share below my simple presentation on using OER for teaching and learning.

Design and Development of MOOC Development Monitoring System

In UTM, one of the common hiccups that we have during the development of a MOOC is to constantly keeping update on how MOOC development is progressing. Hence, we came up with the idea of developing a system where MOOC developers can check and monitor their MOOC development as well as ensuring the content that they provide in their MOOC is aligned with national Garis Panduan Pembangunan dan Penyampaian MOOC Malaysia (2017).

Here is a presentation where I described the development of the system in Social Learning Conference in Sydney last November 2017. It is due to be published in Jan 2018.

Majlis eLearning IPTA @ UniMaP 

Using elearning for teaching and learning has become increasingly important. In Malaysia, eLearning council at higher education level was formed not long ago considering the fact that learning anytime and anywhere has to take place in public universities in Malaysia.

As for today.. I am in Perlis! We have a MEIPTA meeting on 27th May 2016. And Perlis is a beauty of green paddy field. Check out the photo below:

  
I look forward to the meeting as many important decisions related to UTM-MOOC project will be made.
