Can’t have a physical class during a pandemic?

Here are quick tips on how you (as a teaching assistant) can conduct an online class during a pandemic. Before we get started, you need to plan the topic you want to teach and get the materials ready. You might need to prepare PowerPoint slides, practical worksheets, and e-book as student’s extra reference if available.

  1. Create a Whatsapp group (or any social media chat platforms) for the class.
  2. Use Padlet to put all teaching and learning materials. You can use the Grid layout to organise your weekly content in a row of boxes. Padlet allows user to include materials such as file, text, link, video, pictures, etc.
