The COMPETEN-SEA USM team conducted a 3-hour hands-on introduction workshop for the participants of the pilot project to the online course, JomDuit!. The objectives of the workshop were to get the participants to:
- create an email using Gmail
- register an account on the COMPETENSEA EdX platform
- register for courses and get started on learning.
The workshop was kicked off with welcoming remarks by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hafizah Selamat. Next, Prof. Dr. Noraida Endut explained the project and provided details regarding the submission of the final individual project.
Dr. Radziah Adam started the workshop with an ice-breaking activity – Draw Yourself in the Rain. All nine participants enjoyed the activity and engaged in the debriefing.
The online courses are available online on JomDuit.usm.my. The COMPETEN-SEA USM team will provide continuous support to the learners through a WhatsApp group, a Facebook page and other means as necessary.
