Day 129 Task – Cyan Meeting – My Plant Design Project Team Meeting

We have to get used to the new norm. This is the new situation since Covid19 hit us terribly. All meetings must be performed online, virtually including this small Plant Design Project meeting with my students. After about 2 or 3 weeks not having a meeting, we get back together to discuss on various stuffs, which include sizing, costing, waste, recovery etc. The meeting was good and I believed the students benefited. However, there are still few information that need to be searched for and confirmed. That’s fine though. The most important thing is my students are working smart, hard and happy. All the best guys!

Day 85 Task – Checking my Master Student Thesis & Planning for Plant Design Project Interim Presentation

Today it’s the 6th day of working from home deal and the 8th day of us all staying quarantine at home. No matter what we need to stay focus, plan and organize our task, job etc from home. I have arranged my time just like the normal working days accept I am doing work from home. This means I will work in the morning till late afternoon. After that we will do some exercise activity before at night, after dinner/Isya prayer, I will work on my other non-official projects.

Anyway, to update today’s task. The main task was checking my Master Student’s Chapter 4 which I just received yesterday. Alhamdulillah I completed the task around 6pm. In between that, I also discussed with the PDP coordinator team about how to manage the Interim Plant Design Project presentation that should be taking place on the 7th of April 2020. This must be carefully planned so that the execution will be smooth, consider all kinds of situation of students and panels. I have drafted the schedule and also instruction yesterday and today was mainly further improving and discussing the management of the Interim Presentation.

It’s now 10.10 pm and I just finally updated a revised schedule of the Interim Presentation which is to be discussed again with our PDP coordinator. So, let’s just see how it goes.

Day 83 Task – Plant Design Project Meeting Via Zoom

Earlier today, I had a discussion with Dr. Azizul on how to conduct the Interim presentation for Plant Design Project (PDP) since we cannot have physical meeting in the university due to Covid-19. He suggested to use Zoom application, which subsequently after that, I tested Zoom straight away with him. It was my first time and i found using it quite user friendly and easy.

Since I have attempted using Zoom, I straight away invited my PDP students to have our first Zoom meeting session, since we have not done a meeting yet this week. Last week we had a meeting on a Tuesday, during the EAC Audit Meeting.

In short the one hour session that started at 3pm to 4pm was successfully executed. All Wei Chi, Yogenathan, Sabrina and Intan were visibly there and we were interacting and discussing. The design and simulation was smoothly shared for everybody to view.

It seems like we are going to have multiple Zoom sessions in future not only for PDP meeting but for other official meetings as well. Bravo.
