Multimedia University | Guiding Educators to Utilise Google Classroom Management

A total of 69 school teachers from two groups- members of the Persatuan Penduduk Taman Sutera and Chung Hwa School partook in the Google Classroom Management training sessions in June and July 2020. The four sessions were conducted by Faculty of Management (FOM) through its Centre of Business Excellence (CoBE) with the involvement of six members namely Dr Hasni Mohd Hanafi, Dr Chong Choy Yoke, Dr Kwan Jing Hui, Assoc Prof Dr Nahariah Jaffar, Madam Azleen Shabrina Mohd Nor and Mdm Zarehan Selamat.

The programme aimed at assisting the participants to adapt with a new style of teaching through an online platform amid COVID-19 situation and the Movement Control Order (MCO). This new norm has become a challenge to some educators as they have to maneuver their teaching and learning methods into an online platform. The training sessions were interactive, whereby after every segment, the participants were given tasks to gauge whether they understand and manage to perform the functions in the Google Classroom. Based on the evaluation that was given, participants appreciated the coverage of functions available in the platform, smooth conduct of the sessions as well as the way the trainers handled the training. The participants also received their e-certificate to mark the completion of the training.
