TAR UC Goes Fully Online in Teaching and Learning till 31st December 2020April 28, 2020 | Campus News
In its continuous efforts to safeguard the well-being of students and staff during this period of uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (‘TAR UC’) will conduct all its programmes of study online until the end of this year. This covers all programmes of study offered in TAR UC’s Kuala Lumpur Main Campus and its branch campuses in Penang, Perak, Johor, Pahang and Sabah.
For new students, they have to login to TAR UC Intranet at https://web.tarc.edu.my/portal/login.jsp using their Student ID which is given upon registration as Student to participate in e-Orientation and e-Learning for their programme of study.
The e-Orientation provides new students a good insight of the learning journey that they will soon embark upon. It covers areas such as Adjustment to Life as a University Student, and Learning Resources available via a virtual tour of the TAR UC Library. In addition, new students will get the opportunity to meet and interact virtually with their lecturers and other key support staff during the e-Orientation. For Foundation and A Level students, the e-Orientation will go live on 1st June 2020. For Diploma and Bachelor Degree students, the e-Orientation is from 9th to 12th June 2020.
For online learning, new students will login to Google Classroom using their TAR UC Google account which is given upon registration as students. The lecturers will guide them on how to use the e-learning tools effectively. Lecturers will use live streaming and pre-recorded videos to deliver the classes. Students can view these videos anytime and replay them as many times as they wish to learn a subject matter. Through the Google Classroom and G Suite for Education, lecturers and students can also collaborate and interact in real time enabling students to learn more effectively. Other communication tools used to facilitate students' learning include Google Meet (live video meeting), Google Chat (communication chat room) and emails. Importantly, there must be continuous and active engagements in learning by students, facilitated and supported by their lecturers with the aid of e-learning and simulation tools, where applicable.
Given the prevailing situation, TAR UC believes that online learning is the way to go in ensuring students continue to learn effectively in a safe environment. TAR UC Management will continue to monitor the prevailing situation closely and engage with the relevant authorities to further refine and enhance all precautionary measures put in place from time to time to help contain the pandemic. Further updates will be announced via TAR UC official website, Facebook and Instagram from time to time.
