In this new normal era, educators have a lot to catch up; from creating and curating learning materials, designing learning activities, disseminating or providing sufficient learning material to students, to planning and assessing learning activities.
I was invited to an online sharing session Assessment by HITeL UiTM Perak to talk about Tips and Tools for Online. In this session, I had additional material that focused on more tips on how to plan and design learning assessment effectively.
Apparently, the tips are not something new. However, the stress is on how educators align the learning outcomes with the assessments that they plan. In this era, where everything is conducted via online, we need to consider variation in the level of internet access among our students as well. Therefore, negotiation and flexibility come into place here. Do not be too rigid - make sure that the time given to students to complete the tasks is achievable. Make sure to spare additional time if needed so that all we get from students are something that they produced with a full effort and satisfaction.
I also talked about alternative assessment as an alternative :)
I also shared the actual evidence of how I conducted an alternative assessment with my students. What I like most about this kind of assessment is that is allows me to evaluate my students' capacity more holistically. Through a single project given, the evaluation is not focused on what they had learned alone, rather, more importantly, what they can do, team work and collaborative skills, leadership, management, diligence as well as resilience ( just to name a few).
Friends, please also remember to provide a scaffolding support to your students. If you expect them to produce an assignment / task, give them the rubrics that you would use to score their work. Students will appreciate the rubrics as it will help them to focus on the elements in the rubrics and in other words, it will help them to be more focused and how to fulfil the expectation. Every assignment has to come with a clear instruction and details about what will be assessed.
Last but not least, my heartfelt thanks to UiTM Perak for this invitation :)
I know, it can be a frustrating experience when you realised that your computer didn't support a virtual background feature in Zoom! And what is more intimidating is when the virtual background appeared on your face instead! Who has this similar problem (raise your hand hahaha!) Well, there is a simple solution. All you need is just a green cloth or green screen on your back. Watch the tutorial below. I hope you will find this one to be helpful!

It has been in my planning to create such tutorials but time was always my enemy! Thanks to MCO, when all of us are working from home, I managed to (finally) complete this dream. I had been using Weebly since 6 years ago, started with a small, humbled website right after I finished my PhD study leave. I have never imagined that I would still loyal to this website provider until now - 2020.
What I love about Weebly is the fact that it is user friendly, but at the same time the easiness of it doesn't limit our creativity to do / design our website content and layout. Dragging and dropping elements in Weebly makes it more effective to any users. For those who are beginners in website development, I would definitely recommend using Weebly. And until you are fully convinced with its features, stay with a free account. You may want to upgrade to a pro version once you get used to Weebly and are comfortable with the whole process.
So here I present you my humble tutorials on how to create a website using Weebly - but sorry, the explanation is in Malay language :)
Please drop me a line - should you have any questions!
