Ministry to study effectiveness of online learning programme

Malaysia’s Ministry of Higher Education is conducting a study on the effectiveness of online learning and teaching to improve the learning process, reports the Malay Mail.

In a statement on Tuesday 13 July, the ministry said it was concerned with the constraints and difficulties facing students and lecturers in conducting online learning and teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic and suggested that institutions of higher learning refer to the advisory note issued by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency on 8 February as a guide to conduct their study programmes during the movement control period.

Based on the advisory note, providers of higher education are given the flexibility to conduct their learning and teaching activities online and are required to prepare action plans according to the suitability of the teaching needs by taking into account the current situation.
